Rotherham United defender Kirk Broadfoot remains undaunted by the challenges that lie ahead of his side in the remaining 14 games of the Sky Bet Championship campaign.

The former Rangers defender, who has stood in as the Millers’ captain in recent weeks with Lee Frecklington sidelined through injury, believes he and his teammates can overcome any opponent they face in the second tier.

“Every game in the Championship is tough and anyone can beat anyone on their day and we just need to take care of ourselves and try and pick up some points,” Broadfoot told www.themillers.co.uk.

The 31-year-old Scotland international also insists that the Rotherham United camp has been lifted by the arrival of management duo Neil Warnock and Kevin Blackwell who have made it their aim to lift spirits at AESSEAL New York Stadium.

“Kevin has been good on the training ground and the manager has been nice and bubbly,” Broadfoot added.

“The manager has been trying to get a bit of confidence and banter into the place and I think it’s been a good start to be honest.”

The Millers slipped to a narrow 2-0 defeat at the hands of Premier League hopefuls Burnley at the weekend but Broadfoot remains upbeat ahead of the trip to Reading on Tuesday night.

“We’ll just remain well-drilled and if we can go down there and nick a win that would be great."
