Rotherham v Blackpool preview
Last Updated: 04/05/18 11:50am
Rotherham will not risk Joe Newell as they close their regular Sky Bet League One campaign against Blackpool.
The influential midfielder has a sore groin and the Millers will protect him ahead of their play-off challenge. Left-back Joe Mattock should get a run out after a hamstring injury which has kept him out since Good Friday.
Darren Potter and Jamie Proctor are long-term injury victims as Paul Warne's men look to lock down fourth position and therefore a home tie in the semi-final second leg.

Blackpool are without strikers Kyle Vassell and Armand Gnanduillet. Vassell suffered a hamstring injury in the warm-up to last weekend's 1-1 draw with Shrewsbury and his replacement Gnanduillet went on to suffer a similar problem.
That will mean Nathan Delfouneso and Mark Cullen will lead the line at the AESSEAL New York Stadium. Boss Gary Bowyer, who used to play for Rotherham, has no other injuries to contend with as they aim to finish their season with a sixth game unbeaten.
The Millers are currently enjoying a seven-match unbeaten run against Blackpool in the league (W4 D3), last losing to them in March 1997.
Blackpool haven't won away at Rotherham in the Football League since August 1996, losing two and drawing one of three visits since.
Rotherham have won eight of their last 12 league games at home (D3 L1), since losing three in a row at the end of November.
The Seasiders have picked up 13 points in their last five league games (W4 D1), as many as they picked up in their previous 10 outings.
Jon Taylor has netted three goals in his two previous appearances against Blackpool, with all three goals coming in a hat-trick performance for Peterborough United the last time he faced them back in May 2016.
