Rotherham manager Ronnie Moore will recall Adam Le Fondre for the visit of fellow promotion contenders Bury.

The prolific Le Fondre, who had played all 34 league games this season, was rested for the defeat at Bradford on Tuesday but Moore is expected to restore his star striker to the starting line-up.

Defender Tom Newey is still unavailable as he serves the second game of a three-match suspension following his red card against Barnet, with Callum Kennedy likely to continue in his absence.

On-loan winger Omar Daley is likely to be restored to the side after he was ineligible to play against his parent club in midweek, while Ian Thomas-Moore should keep his place after returning to the Millers starting line-up against the Bantams after a hamstring problem.

Ryan Cresswell has returned to training following a lengthy spell on the sidelines with a broken collarbone but the game against the Shakers may come too soon for the defender.

Bury boss Alan Knill will again be without midfielder Damien Mozika for the trip.

Mozika must serve the second match of a two-game ban after collecting his 10th yellow card of the season during last Saturday`s 3-0 win at Hereford.

Peter Sweeney deputised during Tuesday`s 1-0 home win over Morecambe and is set to do so again.

Defender Ben Futcher may remain sidelined through hamstring problems but the second-placed Shakers have no other injury or suspension concerns as they bid to maintain their push for automatic promotion.

Knill said: "We've got really tough games ahead of us, but the good thing is that you can see my players are up for a fight.

"If we have to fight, we'll fight. If we are allowed to play we can do that also."
