Rotherham are still in the dark over the extent of Lloyd Doyley's knee injury.

The 34-year-old defender suffered a swollen knee in the aftermath of Saturday's 2-1 win over Leeds which caused him to miss the midweek draw at Bristol City.

He underwent a scan on Wednesday, but the Millers are still waiting to hear back on the severity of the injury, meaning he is unlikely to be fit for the clash with MK Dons on Saturday.

Assistant boss Kevin Blackwell said: "He had a scan on his knee and we are still waiting on the report so at this moment in time I can't say much."

The Millers should be able to call on Greg Halford, though, despite him suffering whiplash at Ashton Gate.

Halford was involved in a collision in the first half against the Robins, with the game stopped for over five minutes, before he eventually recovered to complete the 90 minutes.

Blackwell added: "He's still getting treatment for it, it was whiplash and anybody who has had whiplash will know how painful that is.

"He cleared the ball and we were coming out and one of their players ran into the back of him and his head flicked back.

"At the moment he is still getting treatment and we will see how he goes."
