Following such an accomplished performance away at one of the league’s early pacesetters, virtually everyone in the team came away with supporters singing their praises.
There was one name however, on everyone’s lips. Ben Wiles.
Having been reinstated to the side after starting from the bench in the midweek fixture against Lincoln City, the Academy graduate was in fine form at University of Bolton Stadium.
The Rawmarsh midfielder opened the scoring with 18 minutes on the clock. Taking aim from the edge of the penalty area and firing a rocket past Wanderers’ stopper Joel Dixon.
Three minutes later and his name was up in lights again, scoring with a downward header from Dan Barlaser’s corner.
On another day, he could have taken the matchball home with him after being a whisker away from turning home Chiedozie Ogbene’s low cross nine minutes before the break.
His goals, as well as his all-round display in the centre of the pitch, saw him earn the supporters vote ahead of Ollie Rathbone, Richard Wood and Rarmani Edmonds-Green.
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 travel to AESSEAL New Stadium to take on Crewe Alexandra.
