Famed for his passing range, but proving he is also an all-action operator. Dan Barlaser seemingly gets better every week in a Rotherham United shirt. His most recent display – in the win over Cambridge United – had it all and has earned him the PA Entertainments Man of the Match award.
His performance, which included a goal as he kept his composure from the penalty spot, caught the eye – despite teammates around him also impressing.
Paul Warne credited the Millers’ mean defence for their part in stifling a resilient U’s outfit, while stepping up in the absence of Michael Smith at the other end, Freddie Ladapo turned in one of his performances of the season.
All-in-all, another excellent collective display and another important three points added to the Millers’ Sky Bet League One tally.
Barlaser claimed 53.3% of the Twitter vote with 572 cast, with Ladapo, Ben Wiles and Richard Wood also among the runners and riders.
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 Tuesday night when the Millers travel to face Ipswich Town in Sky Bet League One.
