David Ball says Saturday's victory at Northampton Town was the perfect response to the recent back-to-back defeats.
The Millers found top gear once more after a terrific away performance following goals from Michael Smith, Ball and Richie Towell.
The victory further cements the Millers' place inside the play-off positions, and goalscorer Ball admits the team's response was of the highest order after their recent set-back.
"All credit to the lads after two defeats to come to Northampton against a team that are struggling, to win 3-0 is really good.," Ball said after the game.
"It is a tough part of the season. It is the last 10 games so everyone somewhere has something to play for, so coming to these places is tough. Certainly we did really well to come back like that after two defeats."
After dropping out of the starting 11 at MK Dons recently, Ball returned to the side to great effect at Sixfields by notching the second goal, his ninth in all competitions this season.
Ball rekindled his partnership with Smith, and the ex-Fleetwood ace admits that the duo continue to go from strength-to-strength, whilst he also acknowledged the work by both wingers which helped him secure the second goal.
"There have been good signs there," Ball admitted.
"Michael is a big lad but he is good with his feet. I am telling the lads to use him more to his feet and I can get off the front. Matty Palmer came in and was a calming influence in terms of on the ball, and I certainly got a lot of the ball, more than usual.
"It was a cross from Fordey. I got the first flick on and then it has come out to Ryan Williams and he has put it back in again. Obviously working with Rich O'Donnell, who is a great lad, in training I know him well, so I took it early and it took him by surprise and it went in.
"We are taking each game as it comes, and just trying to beat whoever is in front of us. We go in to try and win every game and we'll see where we are right at the end of the season."
