He may not have known, it, but on Saturday, Michael Smith joined an exclusive club when he netted his second of the game against Portsmouth.
Scoring in front of the KCM Waste Management North Stand, whilst facing the Mears South Stand!
The cheeky backheeled finish in the 55th minute, an example of someone in the form of their life and oozing confidence in front of goal.
The striker had already netted in the first half to give the Millers the lead, heading home from an inch-perfect Wes Harding delivery from the right.
Then, having seen his effort blocked on the line by former loanee Sean Raggett, Smudge scored with an audacious rebound to put the Millers back ahead.
Richard Wood and Ben Wiles also scored in a seven minute spell to take the game away from the visitors, as the Millers cruised to a 4-1 win.
On a day where a number of performances on the day received praise, Smith took the crown with 61.9% of the 687 votes cast, with Ben Wiles, Ollie Rathbone and Richard Wood also nominated.
