Danny Ward's ankle injury has Rotherham sweating

Rotherham are hopeful that Danny Ward’s ankle injury is not too serious.

The 23-year-old forward hobbled out of Wednesday’s 2-1 friendly defeat to Leicester with the problem after being clattered from behind by Liam Moore.

Ward tried to run off the injury, but was withdrawn in the 22nd minute and replaced by Jordan Bowery.

Assistant Paul Raynor does not think the injury is too serious and hopes to have Ward available for Saturday’s visit of German Bundesliga side Mainz.

Raynor said: “It looks like it is just a knock, we will know more in the morning, but it looks like it was a knock to the ankle.

“Sometimes you can shake them off, but sometimes you can’t so fingers crossed that that’s all it is.

“Danny has been a little bit unfortunate in pre-season he has had some niggles and knocks and sometimes that is the luck you have.

“Hopefully it’s nothing too serious and he will be able to train towards the game for Saturday.”

Meanwhile, Raynor confirmed that loanee Farrend Rawson is currently at Derby getting treatment on an injury.

The 19-year-old, infamous forbeing the ineligible player which cost the Millers three points last season, has yet to feature during pre-season following his loan move from the Rams, but is expected back in South Yorkshire soon.

“Rawson has had a little niggle, Derby have asked that he has done his rehabilitation with them and we are quite happy to do that, he is their player,” the Millers number two said. 

“But he is not far away, we are told he is days away rather than anything else.

“So it’s nothing too serious, we just want to get that cleared up before he comes to us ready for his loan spell.

“It’s days more than anything else, but he is going to be a little bit short on match fitness but he is certainly not far away at all.”
