Football - Evans to ring changes

Rotherham manager Steve Evans will make changes to his side as they host AFC Wimbledon at the New York Stadium.

The Millers saw their automatic promotion hopes suffer a damaging blow when losing 3-0 at Cheltenham a fortnight ago and realistically only three points will do on Saturday.

Evans will recall Kari Arnason after he served a two-game ban, with the Iceland international set to come back in midfield, possibly at the expense of Michael O'Connor or David Noble.

There could also be a change in goal with Scott Shearer back fit again after several months out with knee and elbow injuries, with Andy Warrington's place under threat.

Daniel Kearns is another option for the Millers and the loanee could start on the left instead of Ben Pringle.

Mark Bradley (foot) is the only absentee and he will be in the treatment room for the next couple of weeks.

The Millers, who saw last weekend's game with Exeter called off due to the snow, have only won one of their last six matches and their assault on a top-three spot will realistically be over if they lose to the Dons.
