AFC Wimbledon v Rotherham preview

Bolton will be without both Mark Davies and Matt Mills when

Charlton visit the Reebok Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Both Davies and Mills picked up injuries in the Trotters’ 2-2

draw to Huddersfield last Saturday and are now set for extended

spells on the sidelines.

Jason Prior remain on the casualty list.

Rotherham are expected to have Ian Sharps at their disposal.

The Millers skipper had to go off during last weekend’s 2-1

defeat to Gillingham with a broken nose, but he is expected to play

through the pain barrier.

Utility man Mark Bradley has recovered from a groin injury and

He should come back in at right-back, with Johnny Mullins set to
