York City v Rotherham: Steve Evans planning Millers shuffle
11:34am Tuesday 8th October 2013 in Sport
ROTHERHAM United manager Steve Evans is likely to make the five changes to his starting line up that he is permitted for tonight’s Johnstone’s Paint Trophy clash at York City.
Under competition rules, clubs must select six players that made the starting line-up in their last game or six of the 11 squad members who have started most games throughout the season.
The only player who falls into the latter category for the Millers who did not play in Saturday’s 1-0 win at Brentford, is Northern Ireland’s Michael O’Connor.
But the former Scunthorpe midfielder is injured so is out of contention for the second round Bootham Crescent clash anyway.
Evans will be forced into one change due to centre-back Kari Arnason being on World Cup qualifying duty with Iceland.
Others that will play no part are five-goal top scorer Daniel Nardiello (heel), David Worrall (hernia) and Claude Davis (hamstring).
Former Derby defender Davis might have replaced Arnason if he was fit but Pablo Mills is expected to deputise now instead.
Strikers Danny Hylton and Tom Eaves, on loan from Bolton, are also likely to be given their full debuts, along with midfielder Michael Tidser and former Carlisle ’keeper Adam Collin.
On his plans for facing City, Evans said: “There are obviously competition rules to be adhered to and respected but yes I will be making changes.”
Rotherham (probable): Collin, Bradley, Morgan, Mills, Skarz, Agard, Tidser, Milson, Pringle, Eaves, Hylton.
