                                                    Sharps may get nod for Millers Rotherham boss Steve Evans could be tempted to welcome captain Ian Sharps back to the fold when Accrington head to the New York Stadium.

                                                    Sharps was left on the substitutes' bench despite returning from suspension as the Millers crashed to a 2-1 defeat against Port Vale.

                                                    Evans' side are now without a home win in their last four outings and assistant manager Paul Raynor admitted they were disappointed by the loss to fellow promotion hopefuls Vale.

                                                    As a result, left-back Liam Ridehalgh, another unused replacement against Micky Adams' men, could also be welcomed back into the starting XI.

                                                    Craig Morgan, Lionel Ainsworth, Dale Tonge and David Noble are all out until the new year.

                                                    Evans revealed both Tonge and Noble are expected to play 90 minutes in an outing for the reserves on January 2.

                                                    Accrington boss Leam Richardson will be without the services of Dean Winnard.

                                                    The defender received a second yellow card in their Boxing Day defeat at Bradford and will serve a one-match ban.

                                                    Also suspended is goalkeeper Paul Rachubka after the FA rejected an appeal against his late dismissal in the 1-1 draw with Plymouth last weekend.

                                                    On-loan Leeds man Rachubka must now start a three-match ban and, with regular number one Ian Dunbavin sidelined for the rest of the season with a shoulder injury, youth team keeper Andrew Dawber could be poised for a first league start.

                                                    Nardiello inspires Millers win Two second half goals from substitute Daniel Nardiello re-lit Rotherham's charge for promotion and sparked a comfortable 4-1 victory.

                                                    After a first half of almost total Rotherham domination in which they squandered four or five good chances the home side had to settle for turning round on level terms.

                                                    James Beattie cleared off the Stanley line in the first minute, Alex Revell headed just wide and Kieran Agard blazed over the bar inside the first five minutes.

                                                    But when Rotherham finally went ahead in the 14th minute it came from an own goal, Tom Eckersley heading Kari Arnason's long throw over his own goalkeeper.

                                                    Revell saw another goal bound effort deflected for a corner and on-loan keeper Cameron Belford made a great save to deny Agard.

                                                    And how Rotherham paid for those missed chances five minutes before the break when Michael Liddle's cross found Craig Lindfield on the edge of the area and he had time to set himself before planting his shot in the top corner of the net.

                                                    Rotherham took the lead again in the 62nd minute and again it came from an Arnason long throw. This time the ball was headed up in the air and substitute Daniel Nardiello headed the dropping ball past Belford.

                                                    And that opened the floodgates for Rotherham. Nardiello added his second and Rotherham's third from Agard's cross after 74 minutes and Michael O'Connor made it four two minutes later firing home after his corner was cleared straight back to him on the corner of the box.
