Rotherham United midfielder, Mark Hudson, would love to see the Millers get three points at Sincil Bank tomorrow, so he can put one over on his ex-manager.

Twenty seven year old Hudson was a player at Huddersfield when new Imps boss, Peter Jackson, was in charge there and they didn’t always see eye-to-eye.

Speaking to The Advertiser, Hudson said, ‘Towards the end of my stint at the Galpharm I had my differences with Peter Jackson but these things happen in football. It’s all forgotten on my part now although it would be nice to get one over on him! There was a good atmosphere at Huddersfield and he’s a good motivator, I’ll give him that.’

Hudson also wants a result at Lincoln to put last weeks defeat to MK Dons behind the team and he says they must learn to settle for a point in certain circumstances. ‘We kept driving on and driving on,’ Hudson said, ‘and went a bit gung-ho at the end. We were thinking the three points were there for us and we got caught out with a counter attack which was a real sucker punch. It was a scrappy game. We were very disappointed. It was our chance to close the gap and pull away from those below us and although results went our way we don’t want to have to rely on others.

‘We need to learn to be more clinical. I know we’ve had a couple of three-nil wins but there have been other games where we should have cleaned teams out.

‘MK Dons are eleven points in front of us now and we’ve a hard couple of months coming up but we have to be strong and come through them.’
