Football - Defensive problems for Evans

Rotherham manager Steve Evans has a selection headache for their home clash with Exeter.

Defender Johnny Mullins is suspended following his red card in Saturday's damaging defeat at Morecambe and that leaves Evans with a defensive dilemma as Mark Bradley (foot), Liam Ridehalgh (thigh) and Claude Davis (dead leg) are also out.

Midfielder Lee Frecklington is unlikely to feature as he still battles with a virus that has kept him out of the last two games, while Danny Kearns (Achilles) is also expected to be out, with Evans unlikely to name a full 18-man squad.

Kari Arnason is likely to drop into defence alongside Craig Morgan, while top scorer Daniel Nardiello is hoping for a recall having been left out of the 2-1 loss at the Globe Arena.

The Millers are on a terrible run of form which has undermined their automatic promotion bid, having won two of their last nine games.
