Rotherham United manager,Mark Robins is keeping his fingers crossed that Chris O’Grady will be fit for the game on Saturday at Dagenham and Redbridge. O’Grady had a number of stitches in a head wound on Saturday and there will be a check made later in the week to see how he is going on, although, he was back in training yesterday.

Robins told The Star, ‘We have to make sure that the injury has settled. It is healing pretty quickly and hopefully he will be OK to play on Saturday. But it is a wait and see situation.’

With Marcus Bean being recalled by Blackpool on Monday, there will have to be a change in midfield, ‘It’s a disappointment and we would like to thank Blackpool for letting us have him and we do understand the situation. I hope we’ll see him back again at some point.’

A player who came through Saturday unscathed after being laid off since the summer with injury was Mark Hudson and the manager said, ‘He’s been a big miss for us and it was good to see him back. He came in and did very well.’

So, who will take over Bean’s position, where he has been great for us? Will the team have a swap around? Will we see another of the Youth team step up? Only time, as they say, will tell.
