Lee Frecklington is unlikely to play for Rotherham again this season after another injury blow.
The 31-year-old midfielder’s campaign has been riddled with injuries and he has managed just 20 appearances due to hamstring, calf and ankle problems.
His latest ailment came against Fulham at the start of the month when he took a whack on the his leg, which has caused swelling on his knee.
He has been prescribed three weeks of rest and with only five games remaining, that could be that for the influential skipper.
Boss Paul Warne said: “I’ve got bad news about Frecks, it looks like he is going to be out for three weeks.
“He had a clash on the shin which we thought was a little bit of one bruising but there is some swelling around his knee so he has to have a complete rest.
“I will shut him down for the season, but knowing him he will try and be desperate to get back for the last game.
“I won’t put that candle out for him but realistically his season is up.”
Anthony Forde and Lewis Price are doubts for Good Friday’s visit of Birmingham, though Tom Adeyemi is back in the fold.
