Football - Sharps blunts Millers

Rotherham boss Steve Evans is likely to be without skipper Ian Sharps when they travel to Notts County for their FA Cup second-round replay.

The defender left the field after just 18 minutes of Saturday's defeat to Gillingham after suffering a broken nose in a clash with former Millers striker Deon Burton.

Jack O'Connell replaced him on the day and is likely to deputise again, while Nicky Hunt also provides further options at the back.

Striker Kieran Agard returned to the bench in that fixture after recovering from a thigh injury and could be in line for a starting place.

Midfielder Mitchell Rose also comes back into contention after serving the final game of his three-match ban at the weekend.

Evans has no new injury or suspension worries, but goalkeeper Scott Shearer (knee), defenders Dale Tonge (ankle) and Craig Morgan (foot) plus midfielders David Noble (hamstring), Kari Arnason and Lionel Ainsworth (both shoulder) remain sidelined.
