Whilst missing three games through suspension, Matt Crooks swapped the hallowed turf for the press box at AESSEAL New York Stadium, and even though we’ll miss him on iFollow commentary, it was great to see him back out where the belongs last night.
Crooks was a constant goal threat throughout Tuesday's 0-0 stalemate with Luton Town at Kenilworth Road and twice went within a whisker of putting the Millers ahead.
On the stroke of half time, his deft lob looked to have given the men in all-white the lead. As it kissed the post, it looked certain to be spinning in, but Simon Sluga got across just in time to keep it out.
Then, with just under 20 minutes remaining, Crooks met Giles’ delicious cross from the left heading into the ground and agonisingly wide of the far post.
Giles also received recognition for his energetic display down the left-hand side, but was edged out by his teammate, with Crooks winning 32.9% of the 928 votes cast, compared to 32.1% for Giles, with Richard Wood and Lewis Wing also nominated.
