Robbo please to get Rhodes

Last updated : 27 June 2008 By Bigrich.....
26 year old striker / winger Alex Rhodes signed a ONE year deal with the club yesterday (not a 2 year deal originally stated) and gaffer Mark Robins gave his thoughts on the player to todays 'Tiser.

"Alex will add another string to our bow. We need pace out wide and he provides that in abundance and he can also play down the middle."

"He caused its problems in our league game at Bradford last season. He needs to improve his final delivery and we will work with him to get more consistency into his game." he said.

Meanwhile Robbo will be looking for a new target man given that Derek Holmes is set to leave the club by having his contract cancelled with the 29 year old wanting to move back to his native Scotland to be nearer family.

Holmes was the Millers joint top scorer last season, but didnt find the back of the next after his hat-trick at Lincoln in January and finished the season on the bench.
