Rotherham defender Joe Mattock doubtful for Bristol Rovers visit

Rotherham look likely to be without defender Joe Mattock again for their home game against Bristol Rovers.

Mattock has served a three-match ban, but his troublesome back injury has flared up.

Defender Adam Thompson will sit out the second of his own three-match suspension following his red card in the recent FA Cup loss to Hull.

Clark Robertson (groin) and Billy Jones (hamstring) are long-term absentees, while boss Paul Warne has no new injury concerns.

Bristol Rovers’ new loan signing Josh Ginnelly could make his first appearance for the club.

Ginnelly has joined from Preston for the remainder of the season and will be included in the squad.

Midfield pair Abu Ogogo and Ollie Clarke could both return to contention following injury and will be assessed, but goalkeeper Anssi Jaakkola (dislocated shoulder) is out.

Manager Ben Garner will be missing again from the dugout as he has been granted extended leave to deal with the ill-health of a family member so
Kevin Maher will continue in charge.
