Kirk Broadfoot talks to www.themillers.co.uk...
Rotherham United skipper Kirk Broadfoot has called on his Millers side to keep their cool as they enter the make-or-break stages of their Championship campaign.
Following the March international break, the Millers face three games in seven days, with the weekend’s hosting of Leeds United soon followed by crunch trips to fellow relegation rivals Bristol City and Milton Keynes Dons.
The nerve-jangling final weeks of the season are likely to have more twists and turns for all those of a ‘Red and White’ persuasion, but the Scottish international insists his side must keep their nerve if they are to maintain their Championship status.
“It’s important we don’t get too high when we win and not too low after a defeat,” Broadfoot warned.
“There are still plenty of points to play for and there will be a lot of ups and downs.
“You have to go into every game with a game plan and make sure it works.”
Broadfoot has been given the responsibility of leading the Millers in recent weeks, putting in a string of consistent displays which have brought many plaudits from coaching staff and supporters alike.
With the final straight of the Championship season approaching, the former Rangers ace isn’t getting carried away, as he looks to lead the Millers to survival in the second tier for the second consecutive season.
“It’s always good when you get credit but I just get on with my job,” Broadfoot said modestly.
“I take each game as it comes and I give my all. That’s all I can do and if I’m helping the team, then I’m doing my job.
“We have good centre-halves at the club and any one of them can come in and do a job for us, which is great to see.”
The Millers take on Leeds United this Saturday at AESSEAL New York Stadium, kick off 3pm.
