Rotherham v Walsall preview

Team news for Saturday's League One clash between Rotherham United and Walsall at New York Stadium.

Rotherham defender Mark Bradley should overcome a knock to face his former club Walsall.

The right-back limped out of the Millers' 2-0 win at Oldham on Tuesday, having scored the opening goal, but he will recover in time.

Wes Thomas (ankle) and Rob Milsom (back) are expected to be fit, though with the Millers boasting strong numbers, it will be a battle for them to get into the matchday squad.

The Millers are currently 12 games unbeaten and are 15 points clear in the play-off positions.

Walsall manager Dean Smith will be able to call upon Sam Mantom for the clash with Rotherham.

The midfielder has completed his three-match ban for his red card at Preston and is likely to replace Nicky Featherstone in the Saddlers starting line-up.

Smith will definitely be without Dean Holden as he works his way back from the knee injury picked up in training at the start of February.

Walsall ended a run of four straight defeats by claiming a late point against Crewe in midweek but need victories if they are to break into the top six.
