Rotherham United striker, Chris O’Grady was taken ill just before the team sheets were handed in today, boss Mark Robins told Radio Sheffield this evening.

In the Tivoli there was a rumour that he was off to Nottingham Forest but there is, as far as we know, no truth in this.

He has a virus and the doctor advised that he didn’t play.

Robins said, ‘we could have played him and he might have given us sixty minutes or so, but we decided, after all the games we’ve had recently, to send him home and tell him to rest. After all we have a big game coming up on Saturday.’
