Rotherham boss Ronnie Moore is expected to welcome back son Ian Thomas-Moore for the clash with Barnet at the Don Valley Stadium.

The striker has missed the last three games with a hamstring injury, but after proving his fitness in training, is available for selection.

Defender Johnny Mullins is set to continue in defence after fully recovering from the facial injury which caused his withdrawal in the 25th minute of Tuesday`s 1-1 draw with Torquay.

Moore recalled on-loan Watford striker Liam Henderson to his starting line-up alongside Adam Le Fondre and Ryan Taylor against the Gulls, and after impressing, he could keep his place.

The game comes too early for captain Ryan Cresswell, who remains sidelined with a broken collarbone, but he is close to a first-team return and should turn out for the reserves next week.

Barnet boss Paul Fairclough will name new signings Matty Parsons and Mark Byrne in his squad.

Highly-rated left-back Parsons, 19, has completed a month-long loan move from Crystal Palace where he has appeared three times for the first team this season, while midfielder Byrne has re-signed on loan from Nottingham Forest until the end of the season.

Byrne enjoyed an impressive stint at Underhill earlier this campaign, scoring four goals in 15 League Two starts before his stay was prematurely ended by injury in November.

On-loan midfielder Anthony Pulis will also be added to the squad after completing a three-match ban for his debut sending-off against Torquay, but Greg Southam will sit out the second game of his two-match ban for collecting 10 bookings.

Recent signing Kwame JJ Adjeman-Pamboe will be hoping for more match action after making his debut during last weekend's 4-1 win over Lincoln as an injury-time substitute.
