READ | 'Magic Man ' conjures a duo of tricks and lands Mattress Online Man of the Match in win over Blues

Captain. Leader. Legend. Just three words you could use to describe the evergreen Richard Wood, who has landed himself the Mattress Online Man of the Match award for his performance in Saturday’s 2-0 win over Birmingham City.

Once again deployed at the heart of the Millers’ rearguard – who as a collective turned in another mean display resulting in a clean sheet – the ‘Magic Man’ proved his worth at both ends of the pitch.

Alongside a colossal defensive performance, his most telling contribution against the Blues came at the other end, where he netted two goals – one either side of half-time – which would prove to be the deciding factors in the weekend’s game at AESSEAL New York Stadium.

37-years-of age and seemingly improving like a fine wine with it, Wood landed himself 56% of the 1,067 votes cast over the weekend and saw off competition from league debutant Brooke Norton-Cuffy, Chiedozie Ogbene and Grant Hall.

Another game where it was tough to single anyone out for the four-man shortlist, Paul Warne’s men march on in the second tier with a start that equals the club’s best ever opening in the division, with a run of five matches without defeat.
