Rotherham United captain, Pablo Mills, has told Radio Sheffield that he’s loving having the armband this season.

Speaking after last night’s win over Leicester City in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy, Mills said, ‘It’s added a bit of pressure being captain but I’m enjoying it and I think I’m handling it quite well and it’s added a bit to my game.’

After getting a bit of stick for his performances lately, Mills was announced as Man of the Match at last night’s game and he said, ‘I know I’ve not had the best of times of late but I knew I couldn’t be at my very best for the whole of the season but I will always give one hundred per cent and I’ve always had confidence in my ability. And, I knew, with a bit of patience, it would come.’

Speaking about the game last night he said, ‘We knew they would come with a strong team and that we would have to match them – we did that and played some decent football. We looked confident and it was a good result for us. For the goals I wouldn’t say I was aiming for any one player, I put it in the box and it’s up to the strikers to get on the end of it. It’s good to get a goal just before half-time because it knocks the wind out of the other team. Dale Tonge is looking really confident at the moment and congratulations to him for scoring. Congratulations to Warrington for penalty save as well. The ref said he’d given the penalty because one of our defenders tripped one of their players but I think he just wanted to even things up but it was a great save from Warry.

‘Saturday will be a difficult game at Aldershot they haven’t lost at home for ages. But we will enjoy the result from this one and then just get on and think about the next one.’
