Rotherham United Manager Neil Warnock says that defender Kirk Broadfoot has done exactly what he’s been asked to do.

Speaking to MillersPlayer the Millers Boss said, ‘Since coming here I told the defenders I want them to think first and foremost about being a defender and defend in situation that crop up in a game and Kirk Broadfoot has done that. He’s made very few mistakes and I’m hoping the others follow that.

‘I can’t understand a word he says with his accent but I think he’s happy! He’s done well leading from the front and when you’re captain you don’t have to do a lot of talking on the pitch you do it from your actions and he’s done well in that aspect.

‘Kirk has played with a few knocks over the last few weeks but that’s what old fashioned centre-halves do.

‘Richard Wood has come in and done well. He made a few mistakes against Middlesbrough and got away with it and hopefully he’ll have learnt from that.

‘When your centre-halves play well you’ve got a chance down that spine and we’ve done well there. But I think they are a dying breed. You don’t see many around coming through the ranks of that mould.

‘We are looking round at younger centre-halves to compliment the squad but I like the old fashioned centre-halves because you know what you are going to get with them.’
