The right-back has not featured for the Millers since March due to a metatarsal injury, but was due to step up his recovery by featuring in Saturday's friendly at Tamworth.

But Tonge sustained a new metatarsal problem in training on Friday and boss Ronnie Moore fears the worst.

"He has done his metatarsal again but in a different place to where he did it last time," Moore told the club's official website.

"We now have to see on that one and just hope it isn't going to be another long-term injury."

Rotherham's woes were furthered when Jamie Green limped off in the first half with a groin injury.
