It was a bittersweet afternoon last Saturday for ‘keeper Lewis Price, but the experienced stopper says the club are still in a great position ahead of the Easter double-header.
Price returned to the starting 11 in the defeat at Southend following Marek Rodak’s international call up, and impressed with two notable saves in a good individual performance.
Whilst disappointed with the overall result, the Wales international was pleased to make his return between the sticks, making his first league appearance of the season.
“It was nice on a personal level to play again. Obviously we didn't get the result we expected so that was a little bit disappointing,” Price told www.themillers.co.uk
“It was nice to play again and do okay but at the end of the day I would have taken an average performance and a clean sheet and a win.”
The 33-year-old joined the Millers during the close season of 2016, and was part of the first-team squad during a tough final year in The Championship.
Price hailed the impact of boss Paul Warne for instigating the transformation which has swept through the club, with the Millers in a strong position going into the business end of the League One season.
“It's nice to be around the place and we've been winning games which is always nice but it's not just that. Training is always good and it's a top set of lads and it's a great environment to be in,” Price added.
“You turn up to a Saturday and I think it shows with people that come in and play. Everybody knows what they've got to do and what their job is, where they've got to be and how it's got to be done.
“If we can now get into the play-offs that would be fantastic. The one thing I would say is that the Gaffer and his staff are meticulous in setting us up. It would be great for the club after the season we had last year. I think if we can get into the Play-offs it would be a very good achievement, and then who knows what might happen.”
