Smallwood looking forward to Millers return

The midfielder is likely to be in the squad for Saturday's clash against his former club

26 February 2019

Richie Smallwood is hoping to help Rovers back to winning ways when Tony Mowbray's men travel to Rotherham United on Saturday afternoon.

The 28-year old appeared 133 times in all competitions for the Millers, and heads back to a town that he still calls home this weekend.
 
It's our first game of March, and the ex-Middlesbrough man reckons it's the perfect time for his current club to put a run together, with the run in to come.
 
“Any win at this stage of this season can set you up nicely for the run in, especially with two home games to come afterwards," Smallwood told iFollow Rovers.
 
“We know it will be tough against Rotherham - we saw that at our place when they got a draw. 
 
“They defend well, they have a high press game and a big man up top that causes problems. We’ll have to be on our game. Hopefully our quality will shine through," he added.
 
“I loved my time at Rotherham. I have nothing but positive memories from my time at the club.
 
“It’s not the first time I’ll have been back there, we went there last season and were unlucky not to get the three points.
 
“But hopefully things can change this time around and we can get the win that we need."
