No major injury concerns for Millers

Neil Redfearn talks to Millers Player...

Rotherham United manager Neil Redfearn says he has no major injury concerns as he prepares to take his side to former club Leeds United.

The Millers make the short hop to Elland Road for the highly-anticipated Yorkshire derby, which will see the Millers boss face his former club for the first time.

After a two week break for international fixtures, Redfearn confirmed that his side are ready for competitive action once again and reported his squad is looking strong with captain Lee Frecklington fully covered from a calf problem.

“We have gone through the week with a couple of niggles and knocks but that is just normal for training during the week,” Redfearn told Millers Player.

“By and large the lads are more or less right in regards of fitness and where we need them to be. 

“Lee adds a different dimension to us. He is very combative, he likes to get forward and he has an eye for goal. He is somebody who is a real plus to have. 

“We have no major injuries so it is a case of getting them upbeat and getting motivated for this game which they have been all week.

“We had a good week last week against good opposition and the lads have took some confidence from that which is good so we can take that into the Leeds game.”

Redfearn bolstered his ranks this week with the signings of Leon Best and Stephen Kelly, with the latter completing his move to AESSEAL New York Stadiun yesterday afternoon.

Meanwhile Leeds, who will be lead by former Rotherham boss Steve Evans, are still set to be without Charlie Taylor through illness but defender Liam Cooper is expected to be available after suffering from concussion.
