Cheltenham striker Byron Harrison is pushing for a start against fellow promotion-hopefuls Rotherham after opening his account for the club last weekend.

The former AFC Wimbledon hitman came off the bench to net a last-minute consolation in the 3-1 defeat Burton and the 25-year-old will be hoping to get the nod to face the Millers.

Jermaine McGlashan was introduced at half-time along with Harrison and the winger is also pushing for a start.

Manager Mark Yates has no fresh injury worries with defender Harry Hooman their only absentee for the clash against a side level on points with the Robins in npower League Two.

But Yates will not be able to name Jason Taylor in the squad against his former employees due to a gentleman's agreement between the two clubs when the midfielder moved to Cheltenham in the January transfer window.

The defeat to Burton last time out was Cheltenham`s first defeat in seven games and they remain three points off the automatic promotion places.

Rotherham will be still be without Kari Arnason and Mark Bradley.

Arnason completes a two-match ban for his red card in last week's damaging home defeat to Dagenham while right-back Mark Bradley is out for the season with a cracked bone in his foot.

Both men missed Tuesday's 2-2 draw at Wycombe and boss Steve Evans may stick with the back four that played at Adams Park or bring Craig Morgan into a central berth and move Johnny Mullins back to right-back.

Elsewhere, Daniel Kearns could be pushing for a start on the wing following his comeback from a hamstring injury, though Evans is likely to stick with his front six.

The Millers are in fifth position, three points off the automatic promotion places and with nine games to go.
