Rotherham United defender Richard Wood told MillersPlayer that it’s ‘up to us’ after Tuesday night’s game left the Millers needing one point to stay up.

With MK Dons, who are in the last relegation place in the Championship, nine points behind and with a worse goal difference with three games to play the Millers know they go into Saturday’s game with Wolves needing a draw to stay up.

After Tuesday’s draw with Huddersfield Millers Boss Neil Warnock said that ‘Woody’ had held it together at the back and when asked if he thought it was his best game in a Rotherham shirt, Woody replied, ‘I’ve had a few but I’m disappointed we conceded a goal.

‘We’ve been on a good run and been solid throughout. Me and Broady (Kirk Broadfoot) have formed a good partnership and obviously Greg Halford in front of us is a massive help.

‘You’ve got to build from the back although our last two games haven’t been as good as the previous ones it’s the sign of a good team when you can grind results out. We need to go to Wolves now and grind out another result and get that one point.

‘We want to go until the end of the season unbeaten and that’s what the Gaffer wants us to do. Hopefully we can do that.’

Richard didn’t have the best of starts to his Rotherham career, getting injured almost immediately and out until December and then getting sent out on loan to ‘get games under his belt’.

So when the thirty year old was given a chance by Neil Warnock he took it with bells on and has proved his worth to the Millers.

‘I didn’t get a chance,’ the Ossett born defender told the assembled press, ‘I’d played a lot of games Championship wise and was confident in what I could do. I just needed a chance. Neil’s given me that chance and hopefully I’m showing everybody that I’m a decent defender in this league.

‘But I am desperate to score! Clean sheets and not conceding many is the main thing but I’d love to get a goal.

‘I’m out of contract at the end of the season but I want to try and stay and everybody at the club wants Neil to stay because he’s done a great job.’

I think the whole of Rotherham will know if Woody scores before the end of the season!
