Harford says that he intends having Lee Williamson in the squad for the FA Cup tie at home to the midfielder's former club Mansfield on Saturday but wants the player to have a run out.
Williamson has not played since the Southend game on September 24 after which he started to become ill with the viral infection which hospitalised him.

Richie Barker has also been speaking about his return to Millmoor
"It would be nice to score up there. I am looking forward to returning to Millmooor. There have been quite a lot of changes since I was there with a new manager and only six or seven players that were there when I was. And they are redeveloping the stadium so it will be quite a different place from when I was playing.
"But I am looking forward to looking up a few old faces . I hope that I can score on Saturday but the goal is not the most important thing to me it is the result and the performance. After all they are in the league above us. They are struggling a bit at the moment but it will be an upset if we manage to beat them."

On Richie Barker : The former Brighton and Macclesfield man has the rare feat of making more substitute appearances for Rotherham than starts, coming on an amazing 71 times compared to his 69 starts. He bagged 12 goals for the Millers, five less than he has already managed with Mansfield, in just 44 starts. He stays in the hearts of many Rotherham fans after scoring a particularly sweet winner at Hillsborough in 2002.
