Knill Proud Of Players' Christmas Efforts

Last updated : 03 January 2006 By Millersmad Staff
Knill has been at Millmoor today whilst his players have enjoyed some time off and spoke to the club's official site. He said: "The lads have acquitted themselves really well. Out of the games they only dipped at Bristol City while to overall effort and commitment over the four games has been excellent. Yesterday at Tranmere we were pretty comfortable at 1-0 even though they had a lot of possession and then the referee decided to send Shaun off and I wasn't too sure about that. At 3-1 we produced a fantastic effort to come back and then Tranmere were hanging on as we looked the only team likely to score again. The players were excellent, full of passion and commitment."

With the Millers enjoying a short break until the next game due to Port Vale's involvment in the FA Cup on Saturday, Knill is hoping to bring some players in for the rearranged fixture a week today. " For the Port Vale game we have four players suspended but we have other players coming back while we may have one or two players coming in as well."

Meanwhile, the FA have today confirmed that Shaun Barker will face a two match ban following his unjust red card at Tranmere yesterday. Although in normal circumstances Barker would only be out for one game but as it's his second red of the season, the centre back will face two games out even though, the original card was rescinded.
