READ | Keeper boost for Millers

Alan Stubbs talks to

Manager Alan Stubbs has been boosted with positive news on both of his senior goalkeepers.

Number one Lee Camp suffered a knock prior to the break in Saturday’s draw with Bristol City, whilst Lewis Price was absent from the squad following the birth of his child.

Camp, a former Nottingham Forest stopper, battled through to shake off his injury, despite looking uncomfortable in the moments after suffering what Stubbs explained was a minor back spasm:

“He had a little bit of a back spasm but it looks like it has settled down,” he told Millers Player HD.

“True to Campy being the guy he is, he carried on through the game. It was obvious to see that he was looking a little uncomfortable, but all credit to him for seeing out the match. He has had a couple of days off it now and it has settled down – we are confident that he’ll be okay for the match on Wednesday.”

Stubbs was forced to recall young goalkeeper Laurence Bilboe from his loan stint at Mickleover Sports after hearing that Price wouldn’t be available.

But the Millers boss confirmed that the experienced former Ipswich and Sheffield Wednesday custodian is back in the group, and in the squad for tonight’s game with Nottingham Forest.

“His wife gave birth on Saturday in the early hours of the morning,” Stubbs explained.

“Everybody is good, most importantly the baby is fine and Pricey is trying to take all the accolades and plaudits for it. He is back in the group and he will be involved in the squad for Wednesday.”
