Rotherham manager Steve Evans puts his side's lengthy injury list down to bad luck.

The Millers treatment room is jam-packed at the minute with Scott Shearer (knee), Lionel Ainsworth (shoulder), Dale Tonge (ankle) and David Noble (hamstring) all long-term absentees.

They have been joined by Kari Arnason, who is a doubt for this weekend's trip to Dagenham with a shoulder injury, while on-loan winger Jamie Devitt has returned to his parent club Hull for treatment on a hamstring injury.

Laurie Wilson (knee) and Daniel Nardiello (groin) have just made their way back to fitness, but Evans insists the variety of the injuries shows it is nothing to do with training techniques.

"We have got four or five injuries at the moment, but none of them have got the same injury," he said. "So that's telling us it's not anything we're doing wrong.

"The only time you start to look at what you're doing is if you have four or five of the same injuries and you look at what you're doing in training. So it's just a run of bad luck."
