Rotherham United midfielder Ben Wiles landed the PA Entertainments Man of the Match award for his excellent performance in the South Yorkshire derby defeat to Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.
The midfielder, who is well-known for his Rawmarsh upbringing, turned in a superb all-action display against on derby day at AESSEAL New York Stadium, showing his qualities both as an attacking player and in breaking up play.
424 votes were cast in the online social media poll with the 22-year-old emerging as a clear victor with 45% to his name.
Also nominated were Richard Wood, – who finished as runner-up – Shane Ferguson and Jamie Lindsay.
This poll is supported by PA Entertainments who have been long-term supporters of the club and were hailed for their recent work which involved them lighting up the stadium in the colours of the NHS and more recently, with the image of a poppy for Armistice Day.
As part of the agreement, the club’s official Twitter account @OfficialRUFC will post an online poll after each Millers fixture allowing supporters to pick out their Man of the Match from the shortlist.
The PA Entertainments Man of the Match will be revealed on a Monday morning following a Saturday fixture or midday on the day after a midweek fixture.
The next opportunity for supporters to pick their Man of the Match will be on Saturday, when the Millers face welcome Doncaster Rovers to AESSEAL New York Stadium.
