Izzy Brown talks to www.themillers.co.uk...
Chelsea loanee Izzy Brown says confidence remains high within the Rotherham ranks as the Millers prepare for their return to action against Norwich City this weekend.
Following the international break, the focus again turns to domestic matters as the Millers travel to Carrow Road looking to turn improved performances of late into points.
Brown has been a virtual mainstay in Alan Stubbs’ line-up following his arrival from Stamford Bridge, and despite by his own admission not living up to his own high standards in the recent game with Newcastle, he is looking forward to getting back on track against the Canaries this Saturday.
“I think we’ve been really unlucky and some of the games we’ve played in we’ve deserved to win,” he told www.themillers.co.uk
“We played so well in the recent games and then little mistakes have cost us.
“I think the Newcastle game was probably my worst performance so far but everyone has a bad game and you can’t keep 100% all the time. I’ll be looking to put it right next time.
“We’re always working hard in training to put things right, and that’s what we’re looking to do now so we can get the three points that we deserve.”
Despite the position in the Sky Bet Championship table, notable performances against high-flying Huddersfield Town and Newcastle United have given fresh optimism at AESSEAL New York Stadium.
The England under 20 international says that the mood remains positive around the training ground ahead of an away double header, which concludes with a Tuesday night trip to Birmingham City.
“Everyone remains upbeat,” adds Izzy.
“There are plenty of smiling faces but when it’s time to get serious, we do. We know what we need to do here to get some points on the table, and it’s the least we deserve because it doesn’t really do us justice.”
The Millers setup this season has seen Izzy linking the play between the engine room and hard-working striker Danny Ward, with the 19-year-old admitting he has enjoyed his partnership with Rotherham’s top scorer.
“Danny Ward is a great player and you can see that everyday in training. The way he plays in training and his finishing and things after training shows you that we’re lucky to have him in the team. We know he’ll score 10 plus goals this season because he’s a great finisher and I’m happy to be playing with him. We’ve got a good understanding with each other. We’re working well and I hope that can keep going as the season kicks on.”
