Rotherham Utd v Nottingham Forest: Team News

Rotherham will be without Lee Frecklington for the visit of Nottingham Forest.

The midfielder suffered a calf problem in last weekend's crucial 4-0 win over MK Dons and is expected to be out for around a fortnight.

Joe Newell, Paul Green and Jerome Thomas are the men hopeful of taking his place.

Lloyd Doyley (knee) is also expected to miss out as the Millers aim to extend a season-saving eight-game unbeaten run.

Jamie Ward is a major doubt for Forest as they look to halt a four-game losing streak.

The forward was forced off against Brighton on Monday night with a hamstring injury and looks certain to miss the trip to South Yorkshire.

Dexter Blackstock replaced Ward up front and scored in the 2-1 defeat to the Seagulls so he is likely to start at the weekend.

Forest head coach Paul Williams hopes Michael Mancienne will be back in the squad after an ankle problem but fellow central defender Kelvin Wilson is less likely to return from his back complaint.
