Rotherham United Manager Steve Evans is hopeful that the virus that stopped midfielder Lee Frecklington starting the game at Gillingham on Monday afternoon will have soon passed.

Speaking to MillersPlayer the Millers Boss said, ‘Lee has been badly ill for a few days and we are going to check on him tomorrow.

‘When you have a virus it knocks you for three or four days but once it’s gone it is out of your system. I spoke to him on the ‘phone yesterday and asked him if we should put him out of our thoughts for the weekend and I had to take the receiver away from my ear! He wants to be involved and we missed him at Gillingham but he will only play when he tells me he’s ready and is one hundred per cent.’

Some good news for the Millers is that defender Mark Bradley played the full ninety minutes of the reserve win over Tranmere yesterday. It was thought that Mark’s season was over when an x-ray on his foot revealed a fracture last month but it seems that it wasn’t as bad as first thought.

‘It’s positive news that he’s had no reaction to him playing,’ the Millers Boss said. ‘To have Mark back so quickly is fantastic news. Mark has got such a good attitude and his such a fit lad that he gives himself a chance of recovering from injuries more than most. A lot of players would have been on crutches for four weeks but Mark was back in the swimming pool within forty-eight hours. Fair play to him and he’s back in the squad for Saturday.’
