Palmer smells that Promotion smell

Speaking to the Star, the 22 year old midfielder spoke about his move from Burton Albion.

“As soon as I walked through the door, I could tell the changing room was buzzing, We’re not planning just on staying fifth. We want to move up the table as far as we can, keep going until the end of the season and see where takes us."

“I’m pretty sure that everyone of us in the dressing room is aiming for promotion. Last season, I played about 40 games in the Championship. I thought I did well. I played 15-odd this season. I’ve not come here to sit in League One. I want to get back to the Championship and I think I can do that here.”

Palmer then looked back at making his debut in the 2-0 win over Wimbledon.“I wasn’t expecting to start, It was a nice surprise. Every player wants to play and I hadn’t played for a couple of months. I was feeling it a bit afterwards, but we got the win so that makes everything a lot better."

“I feel good. Match-fitness is probably a bit different to normal fitness. Hopefully, I can build up the match-fitness and the performances will get better. I should have scored. If I keep getting in those positions, hopefully my first goal for Rotherham isn’t too far away.”

“As soon as I met the manager, I knew this was the place I wanted to come to, He’s got lots of ideas for me and the team. I fell out of the team at Burton. I just wanted to play football. Rotherham is a very attractive place to come to. There’s a great ground and great facilities. The fanbase is good. They’re doing really well, so it was an easy decision.”
