Rotherham defender Billy Jones will play no part in the home game against Rochdale after being ruled out for the rest of the year.
Jones will be sidelined for six weeks after a scan revealed the full extent of his hamstring injury.
Richard Wood (hamstring) and Shaun MacDonald (virus) are still unavailable.
Versatile defender Trevor Clarke (ankle), withdrawn from the midweek FA Cup win at Solihull Moors, and defender Clark Robertson, who has had an injection in his groin, will both be monitored.
Rochdale manager Brian Barry-Murphy could be without a number of players for the game.
Experienced defender Paul McShane has not played since the FA Cup first-round replay with Wrexham and also failed to make the second-round tie with Boston last weekend.
McShane sat out the Boston game, which ended 0-0, along with long-term absentees Ryan McLaughlin, Tyler Magloire and Jim McNulty.
Ollie Rathbone returned as a substitute against Boston and will be pushing for a start at Rotherham.
