Kieffer Moore may not be risked at Blackburn on Tuesday

Rotherham boss Paul Warne is thinking over whether to play Kieffer Moore at Blackburn on Tuesday.

The Millers star striker took his tally to eight goals for the season with two in the 5-1 demolition of Oldham, making him the top scorer in the top four divisions.


He is still carrying a groin injury suffered against Walsall almost two weeks ago, though, and Warne is unsure whether to risk getting three games out of him in a week.

His absence would be felt at Ewood Park as the Millers try and marry their away form to that they are producing at the AESSEAL New York Stadium.

“Kieffer is obviously sore in the whole groin area,” Warne said. “You could see him stretching off, even after he scored.

“He will definitely declare himself available. He would be a miss if he didn’t play, but it’s not the last game of the season on Tuesday night.

“Would I take a point or three points at Blackburn and then Kieffer be missing for four months? No I wouldn’t.

“We really have to reassess him Monday. We have to manage him properly. This week was Saturday to Saturday and he didn’t train a great deal, so to go Saturday-Tuesday-Saturday might be pushing my luck a little bit.

“I will look at it and speak to Kieffer and the physios, it might be he gives us an hour or 90 minutes. I am not trying to be too coy, I will have to look at it.”
