Having just landed his third consecutive PA Entertainments Man of the Match award, there are rumours a certain Italian midfielder has now proudly adorned his wall with a poster of Dan Barlaser.
Known as the ‘Geordie Pirlo’ for a string of excellent display in his deep-lying midfield role, Barlaser’s recent purple patch in front of goal continued on Saturday, with his second half goal enough to land the Millers all three points from a tough battle against Cambridge United.
The goal oozed quality, composure and class, as the midfielder – courtesy of a lung-busting run from Ogbene and clever cut-back from Smith – passed the ball into the bottom right corner from the edge of the area.
On a day where everyone stood up to be counted, it was Barlaser who earned the fans vote with 69.3% of the 1,085 cast on the day.
Also nominated were Chiedozie Ogbene, Michael Ihiekwe and Ben Wiles.

This poll is supported by our friends at PA Entertainments and Terrace Threads.
PA Entertainments have been long-term supporters of the football club and were hailed for their recent work which involved them lighting up the AESSEAL New York Stadium in the colours of the NHS and more recently, with the image of a poppy for Armistice Day.
Supporters may be aware that we recently welcomed Terrace Threads on-board, who took up the option of sponsoring our newly-produced ‘Goal Gifs’ for the duration of the 2021/22 campaign.
Following discussions between the two parties, they have collaborated to give supporters an added incentive to vote for our Twitter Man of the Match Poll, with fans who cast a vote and retweet our social media poll automatically entered into a prize draw to win a Beanie Hat from Terrace Threads.
The PA Entertainments Man of the Match and the lucky winner of the Beanie Hat 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 is on Boxing Day when the Millers travel to Accrington Stanley.
