Rotherham United Midfielder, Danny Harrison, believes the next three games are ‘key’ games for the Millers’ fight to move up the table.

Unable to widen the gap on Barnet and Grimsby, whose games was called off last weekend, by more than a point, the twenty-six year old said he was relieved to come away with a draw. ‘We started terribly in the second half,’ Harrison said, ‘and gave them a goal. But we both had chances to win.’ Harrison also wants to thank goalkeeper, David Stockdale, for ‘getting him out of jail’ after he dealt with Harrison’s sloppy back pass, that looked certain to be a goal.

Harrison thinks the next three League games are the most crucial of the season and said, ‘It’s unbelievable how the next three fixtures have lined up. We can effectively see off Luton, Bournemouth and Grimsby if we get good results – maybe win two out of the three. And, after that, we can start to look up instead of over our shoulders. We could even drag teams like Accrington and Chester into bother. With the situation we’re in we are really only looking at teams around us and if we can take points off them then it means we can get to our safety total a lot quicker. It would be nice to reach February in a much healthier position and as good as done and dusted.’
