                                                    Woodman banned for Millers meeting Exeter boss Paul Tisdale will be forced into changing his victorious side for the visit of Rotherham with defender Craig Woodman missing through suspension..

                                                    The 29-year-old left-back will serve a one-game ban for his fifth booking of the season, picked up in the midweek win at npower League Two leaders Gillingham, with young defender Jordan Moore-Taylor set to deputise.

                                                    Striker Tom Nichols has moved to Bath City on loan while midfielder Jimmy Keohane is pushing for a start after catching the eye and winning a penalty as a late substitute on Tuesday.

                                                    City moved into the last play-off spot following wins over Bradford and then the Gills and Tisdale is looking forward to seeing if his team can build on that fantastic four days against the Millers.

                                                    Tisdale said: "It is another big game, it has been a long couple of months of hard graft as players play two games a week and Tuesday was the last midweek game until the new year.

                                                    "I'd like to see it through now with a good performance at home on Saturday. That has to now be our target - getting through Saturday with a result. Lets start with a good performance, very similar to the way we played in the final part of the Fleetwood game." Rotherham could hand debuts to Liam Ridehalgh and Jack O'Connell.

                                                    Left-back Ridehalgh has arrived on an emergency loan from Huddersfield while centre-back O'Connell has joined on a youth loan from Blackburn and with a crippling injury list, Steve Evans is likely to throw them straight into his starting XI.

                                                    Evans also recalled centre-back Johnny Mullins back from his loan spell at Oxford and he is likely to get an outing as the Millers boss contends with a host of absentees.

                                                    Lee Frecklington (back), Lionel Ainsworth, Kari Arnason (both shoulder), Dale Tonge (ankle/knee), Scott Shearer (knee), Kieran Agard (thigh), Craig Morgan (leg) and David Noble (hamstring) are all out.

                                                    A knee injury to left-back's Josh Morris cut his loan spell at Blackburn short, prompting Ridehalgh's move, while Jamie Devitt returned to Hull last week with a hamstring strain.

                                                    Sharps leads by example Captain Ian Sharps scored the only goal of the game as Rotherham earned a 1-0 win at play-off rivals Exeter.

                                                    Despite atrocious conditions, the first half was an entertaining affair. Alan Gow hit the crossbar for Exeter with a stunning effort from 25 yards and Jamie Cureton was denied by a smart Andy Warrington save low to his right.

                                                    At the other end, Exeter goalkeeper Artur Krysiak made two excellent saves from Alex Revell and Johnny Mullins before the deadlock was broken three minutes before half-time when Sharps glanced a near-post header across goal and into the net from a corner.

                                                    Exeter had plenty of possession after the break, but they did not test Warrington enough.

                                                    The Millers were reduced to 10 men three minutes from full-time when Mitchell Rose was given a straight red card for a foul on substitute Aaron Dawson.
