Football - Nardiello set to get the nod

Rotherham are expecting striker Daniel Nardiello to be fit for the opening game of the season at Crewe.

PA Sport Report

Nardiello scored 18 goals last season as the Millers ended a six-season stay in the bottom tier, but he sustained a hamstring injury in the pre-season clash with Huddersfield and only returned to training this week.

That is the only injury concern for boss Steve Evans who could hand a host of debuts to his summer signings, with Richard Brindley and David Worrall likely to get first starts.

If Nardiello is fit he will be battling it out with new arrivals Danny Hylton and Matt Tubbs for a place in attack alongside Alex Revell.
