Sweet victory for returning Lee

Lee Frecklington talks to

Midfield maestro Lee Frecklington was quick to praise his Rotherham United side following their hard-fought victory over play-off rivals Peterborough United on Saturday.

Kieran Agard's 18th goal of the season proved the difference for Steve Evans' men as they extended their unbeaten run to 13 games following their eye-catching victory at London Road.

Speaking to following the clash, Frecklington hailed the defensive fortitude of his side in the face of late pressure from the home side.

"We all know what a good side Peterborough are but the 'keeper and the back four defended unbelievably and saved us again." he enthused.

"I don't think there was much in the game and we managed to get the lead at half time.

"We knew we would be under the cosh in the second half but we were delighted to hold on and get a clean sheet and more importantly, the win."

The victory was extra special for Frecklington and skipper Craig Morgan, who returned to their former stomping ground and gave their former employers a glimpse of what they are missing by turning in fantastic performances for the Millers, who moved up to fourth at the expense of Preston following the win.

Speaking afterwards, Frecklington was finding it hard to contain his joy at claiming the scalp of one of the League One heavyweights in their own backyard.

"It's a great result and we would have taken one-nil all day long," he added.

"It was up and down times for me here, but I'm delighted to come back here and get the win.

"I was disappointed with the way I left but all I could do was come back, work as hard as I could for the team and help us get a result, so I'm happy."

The victory over Darren Ferguson's men maintains the Millers' faint hopes of gatecrashing the automatic promotion spots and with one of the present incumbents, Brentford, the next on the menu, Frecklington insists his high-flying side still have all to play to for.

"It's a great result for us today and it's another game ticked off," he added.

"We will try our best in every game and see where that takes us. If we beat Brentford, we will be right in the mix."
