Rotherham United have been given the ‘Team of the Round Award’ in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy after their win over Leicester City.

This is the second time they have won the award, the first being when they beat Leeds, which is the first time one team has ever been given this in the competition’s history.

Teresa Hardwick, Johnstone’s Sponsorship Manager, told the Official Site, ‘It is the same time we have honoured the same team twice in one season. But nobody can argue with our choices. Rotherham have been impressive from the first ball they kicked and we wish them all the best for the remainder of the competition.’

The Millers play Darlington in the next round of the competition, at Don Valley, on 16th December.
