After the postponement of the Bradford match the Seasiders have the chance to pull further away from the relegation zone with a home match against the cash strapped Rotherham.
Simon Grayson will be without Marcus Bean due to suspension, also Grayson will be with out Danny Coid, Ciaron Donnelly, Phil Doughty, Keith Lasley and Sean Taylor all through injury. Bean will probably be replaced by Keith Southern.
Marc Joseph who has been out with a hamstring injury has been rated as “50-50” but might not be risked due to the nature of the injury.
Out: Marc Joseph, Sean Taylor and Ciaron Donnelly (hamstring)
Danny Coid (ankle)
Phil Doughty (leg)
Keith Lasley (Knee)
Marcus Bean (suspension)
4-4-2 magazine recently voted the Scot at the Seasider's best player, he'll be looking to get into double figures after scoring 9 goals so far this season.
Rotherham also didn't play last week, their home match against Oldham was also cancelled due to the adverse weather conditions. The last match they played that were on the end of a 4-0 drubbing to Chesterfield, which was a surprise result after winning two games on the trot against Bournemouth and Swindon.
Rotherham lie in 23rd place with 36 points only two points from MK-Dons who prop up the league.
Lee Williamson returns from suspension, the only player out injured for United is Scott Minto who has achilles problem.
Butler who once cost Reading 750K has scored 7 goals this season for United. His last goals came in the win at Swindon. He cost Rotherham 150K in 2003 and has bagged 28 goals in his time at Millmoor.
Pool were in the end of a 4-0 drubbing with the now departed Dean Burton grabbing a hattrick, former Burnley man John Mullin got the first goal of the game which is his only goal so far this season.
