Alex Pritchard: Not available

Team news for Saturday's League One clash between Swindon Town and Rotherham United at Crown Ground.

Swindon will be without Tottenham loanee Alex Pritchard when they host Rotherham.

The influential playmaker has been one of the Robins' outstanding performers during his season-long loan but he will be unavailable to face the Millers under the terms of his youth loan as he turns 21 on Saturday.

Manager Mark Cooper will also be missing Troy Archibald-Henville and Nathan Thompson through suspension after the pair picked up red cards in the melee at the end of their 2-0 loss to Notts County last Saturday.

Ryan Mason, Grant Hall, Yaser Kasim, Ryan Harley and Nile Ranger all miss out through injury.

Rotherham manager Steve Evans will make changes to his side for the trip to Swindon as he builds up his preparations for the play-offs.

The Millers have been booked into the end-of-season showpiece since the beginning of April and Evans has tinkered with his side over the last few games in order to protect players and give others time on the pitch.

On-loan midfielder Richie Smallwood serves the second game of his three-match ban, meaning he is unavailable until the second leg of the play-off semi-finals, while Miles Addison is doubtful with a twisted ankle.

The Millers are currently fifth and need to win and hope that Preston and Leyton Orient do not to ensure a home game in the second leg.
