Grant: Suspended for Southend

Team news ahead of Saturday's League Two clash between Rotherham and Southend at the Don Valley Stadium.

Rotherham manager Andy Scott has no new injuries but could be tempted to tinker with his starting line-up.

The Millers conceded three goals last week and Scott has hinted at changes to his back line, who he described as "not up to it" following a 3-3 draw at Torquay.

Striker Brett Williams has been struggling with an ankle injury in recent weeks and has returned to parent club Reading for treatment, which could sideline him for a further fortnight.

Defender Johnny Mullins returned to action following a long-term knee injury by playing 70 minutes for the reserves in midweek and could be back in contention before the end of the month.

Goalkeeper Jamie Annerson and midfielder Paul Warne remain long-term absentees due to their respective knee injuries.

Ryan Hall and Anthony Grant miss out for Southend.

The midfield pair both picked up their fifth bookings of the season in last weekend's 2-0 victory over Plymouth and now serve automatic one-match suspensions.

But manager Paul Sturrock has plenty of options at his disposal, most notably in the form of Jean-Paul Kalala, Ryan Leonard and Jemal Johnson.

Defender-come-striker Bilel Mohsni returns to contention having served a one-match ban of his own.

Midfielder Lee Sawyer will be given every opportunity to return from his thigh injury but is not expected to be ready for this weekend, neither is striker Barry Corr (knee).

Neil Harris made his comeback from a groin injury as a second-half substitute against Argyle last Saturday.
