It was the moment Jamie Lindsay finally stopped running.
Referee Keith Stroud sounded his finally whistle and the Millers players – including Lindsay – sunk to their knees. Some of it relief, some of it fatigue.
Matt Taylor’s men had beaten promotion-chasing Middlesbrough to secure Sky Bet Championship survival and the Scot had just played a huge part in it.
With an array of attacking talent in their side, Boro were always going to pose a huge threat and it needed a tireless performance from the home side to keep them at bay, even when the visitors were reduced to 10 men.
Lindsay was at his very best, winning everything, got his team on the frontfoot and virtually covered every blade of grass.
Hakeem Odoffin’s stunning strike just after the break gave the Millers a slender advantage, which they were able to see out against Michael Carrick’s side, to guarantee another season of second tier football in 2023/24.
Odoffin was nominated alongside Lindsay, along with captain Richard Wood and Jordan Hugill, but it was the Scot who won the supporters’ vote with 49.2% of the 729 cast.
