Preston manager Simon Grayson has no injury worries ahead of the game but could give Kevin Davies, Keith Keane and Chris Humphrey starts after they impressed from the bench in the first game.

Australian International Neil Kilkenny is set to return to the squad after he missed out last weekend.

Kilkenny is fit again after a calf strain and has resumed training but will be assessed before the game to see if he can feature in the match.

Should Preston win at the New York Stadium they will be the first side to do so since Coventry on New Year’s Day.

Since then Steve Evans side have won 7 and drawn 4 in front of their home fans.

Evans has a number of worries heading into the game with Richard Brindley (hamstring) and player of the year Lee Frecklington (knee) rated as extremely doubtful while Ben Pringle (thigh) and Wes Thomas (back) have emerged as doubts.

Top scorer Kieran Agard (hamstring), Nicky Adams (calf) and Miles Addison (ankle) all missed the first leg and will be assessed before the game, although Evans was not hopeful on being able to call on the trio.

There was some good news however for the club with on-loan midfielder Richie Smallwood is back from a ban.

Very little separated the sides in the first leg and that was also the case in the league meetings with Preston grabbing a point in a 0-0 draw away before the spoils were once again shared in a thrilling 3-3 draw at Deepdale in February.

On that occasion Rotherham were two up and cruising before Preston scored 3 without reply and in the end the Millers snatched a point thanks to Lee Frecklington’s 89th minute goal.

Evans, whose side finished a place and a point above Preston in the regular league, is expecting a tough game on Thursday.

“But we know how tough it’s going to be and don’t live in a land that says it’s any easier because we have gone to Deepdale and brought them back here level” Evans told the Yorkshire post.

“Like ourselves, they have a fantastic away record and some incredibly talented players and huge resources.

“It’s finely balanced. We have played them three times without a goal to spare.”
