Tom Adeyemi talks to

On loan Rotherham United midfielder Tom Adeyemi believes he and his teammates are visibly improving week-by-week as they continue their quest to lift themselves out of the Sky Bet Championship drop zone.

The Millers upset the second tier applecart with a stunning home win over Norwich City a fortnight ago before giving table-topping Newcastle United a run for their money at St. James’ Park last weekend.

The 25-year-old insists the belief that his temporary employers can preserve their Championship status this season is well and truly alive within the squad and says they are viewing each game as an opportunity to put points on the board.

“It’s clear, we are a much better team now than we were previously, and we go into every game believing we can get something,” Adeyemi told

“We are really positive in looking forward and we believe slowly but surely that we can start closing the gap.

“It’s a bit of recurring theme, that we are deserving more than we are getting but in the Championship, the games come thick and fast, so there is always an opportunity to pick up three points in the next game.”

Adeyemi has been a regular feature in the Millers’ engine room since proving his fitness after an injury-stricken start to life at AESSEAL New York Stadium and admits he feels that he can continue to grow with each game he gets under his belt.

“My level of performance is getting better every week as I’m getting fitter,” he continued.

“Personally, I’m in a good place at the moment. I’m enjoying Rotherham as a club. It’s a great group of boys and staff and I’m really happy here.

“It’s been brilliant for me to get a run of games. I’ve played a lot of games on the spin and that’s the first time I’ve done that in two and a half years and I feel a lot better for it.”

The Milton Keynes-born midfielder has also raised eyebrows with his impressive goal return from the centre of the park, with four to his name so far in 2016/17, but believes he can maintain those standards as he continues to gain his fitness.

“I do feel in the last month or so, I’ve got in a lot more advanced positions,” Adeyemi explained.

“I had about four shots against Wigan and hit the bar and as I’m getting fitter, I’m getting in better positions and that is something I feel I can bring to the team, in nicking a goal here and there."
