Rotherham striker Danny Ward (calf) and winger Jerome Thomas (illness) may be fit for selection.

Midfielder Joe Newell (ankle) and defender Lloyd Doyley (knee) are out for the last two games of the campaign.

Blackburn manager Paul Lambert will take charge for his side’s penultimate game after announcing he will leave at the end of the season.

Winger Craig Conway and defender Tommy Spurr (Achilles) will both be pushing for a start.
