Embroiled in relegation trouble it’s difficult to pick a shining light from Rotherham’s difficult campaign. They’ve won just seven games, sit in 22nd and are a point off Millwall who also have a game in hand.
Surviving is a slim possibility but fans have still found players to praise in a troublesome campaign for Paul Warne’s team.
Supporters of the Millers are all in agreement over one man in Joe Mattock, who they feel is deserving of their player of the season award having discussed the matter on Twitter.
One fan described the left-back as consistently excellent whilst another said he’d been immense. One individual claimed his displays had gone under the radar.
Among the debate, there were also mentions for Semi Ajayi and Michael Smith.
It may come as a surprise to see Rotherham fans vote for a defender when they’ve conceded the most goals, 67, in the Championship this season. However, he has been a player they have been able to depend on regularly.
The 28-year-old has missed just two league games in 2018/19, featuring 37 times. His only goal came in a 1-1 draw with Reading back in December.
Here’s the best of the discussion.
Mattock has done everything he has needed to And under the radar deserves it for me
