Rotherham United winger Chris Maguire is looking forward to playing against his former club this evening.

The twenty-six year old spent three years with the Owls before moving to the New York Stadium in the summer and will be hoping to make his fourteenth appearance tonight for the Millers.

Saying the team are full of confidence after getting a point against high flyers Reading on Tuesday night, the Scottish International told MillersPlayer, ‘Since the Manager has come in he’s drummed it into us to stay in the game and while we are still in the game there’s a chance of winning. I thought we could have nicked it on Tuesday night but it wasn’t to be.

‘I think people who have been to the last two games will see that there’s been a different way of playing for us and the boys are enjoying it a lot more. As a player you want to be on the ball and pass it and create chances and have efforts at goal and I think that helps with this style of play the Manager wants.’

Going on to speak about tonight’s game, Chris said, ‘I don’t think anyone needs to get me up for this game. I’m looking forward to it and it will be a great atmosphere with everyone turning out for the derby. Hopefully we can get the three points.

‘I want to get out there and play and hopefully I can do that if given the opportunity but I don’t think I’ve got to prove anything to anybody. It’s just business as usual and whether I get the nod to start or come off the bench I’ll do my job for the team.’
