Midfielder Russell Penn returns to the Burton squad as high-flying Rotherham come to town.

The record signing was suspended for the midweek defeat at Wycombe, which saw Calvin Zola suffer a hamstring injury.

The striker, on loan from League Two rivals Crewe, now faces up to six weeks on the sidelines.

Greg Pearson, Zola`s replacement on Tuesday night, could be recalled for his first start since February 1.

Scott Malone missed out at Adams Park after pulling a thigh muscle in training and remains a doubt, while fellow defender Nathan Stanton was absent due to personal reasons and it remains to be seen whether he will return.

The versatile Aaron Webster is pushing for a recall.

Rotherham boss Ronnie Moore will welcome Callum Kennedy back into his squad.

The young defender, on-loan from Swindon, missed the 2-0 win over Accrington on January 15 due to a one-match ban after he was sent off on his debut at Oxford.

Attackers Ryan Taylor (groin) and Ian Thomas-Moore, who both missed the clash with Stanley, remain injury doubts, so the Millers could continue with a 4-4-2 formation.

If that is the case, loanee Liam Henderson will continue to partner top scorer Adam Le Fondre up front.

Youngsters Jamie Green and Grant Darley have both joined Blue Square Bet South side Boston on month-long loan deals, while captain Ryan Cresswell is still not ready to return to action from a broken collarbone.
