Encouraging Rotherham United injury update emerges ahead of Cambridge clash

Published

on

Rotherham United manager Paul Warne has revealed that defender Angus MacDonald will be his side’s only absentee from their clash with Cambridge on Saturday afternoon.

The Millers will be looking to strengthen their position in the race for promotion to the Championship this weekend, and could move into second in the table with a win, depending on results elsewhere.

Now it seems as though Warne will have near enough a full-strength side to call upon as he looks to do that.

According to an update from the Yorkshire Post’s Leon Wobschall on Warne’s pre-match press conference, the Rotherham boss has confirmed that MacDonald is the only player unavailable to him this weekend.

MacDonald has yet to feature this season, and Warne went on to confirm that the centre back is still some way from making his return to action.

However, Rotherham will be able to welcome left-back Joe Mattock and midfielder Jamie Lindsay back to action against Cambridge.

Mattock has not featured for the Millers since mid-October due to an Achilles issue, while Lindsay has been out since the end of September with a hamstring problem.

The Verdict

This does certainly look to be promising from a Rotherham United perspective.

The Millers have made a strong start to life back in League One this season, and will obviously be looking to bounce back to the Championship as soon as possible.

Having a fully fit squad will obviously help them to do that, since it means they have their best players, who have shown they can make an impact in this division, available to help them pick up positive results.

Indeed, the return of the likes of Mattock and Lindsay also gives Warne more scope to rotate his side in what could be a busy run of games, and that ability to rest players without losing any quality is a useful asset for him to have moving forward.
