17 games, 1 goal, at times zero effort is probably a fair review of Dexter Blackstock's time with the Millers, and Chairman Tony Stewart tells the Star that its now time to see the real Dexter Blackstock.

“After the investment that has gone into that guy, I would like to see what’s inside him. It’s work in progress. This guy has played at a high level and has got something. We haven’t seen it at Rotherham yet.”

“We’ll be talking to Blackstock, I know that Paul Warne is working with him. “I would say this about Dexter, we will work with him. It’s a two-way street. It’s not just us telling him. It’s a communication on both sides.”

With relegation looming, Stewart also confirmed that Blackstock, like most of the squad will be taking a cut in wages in League 1; “Most prudent clubs prepare for a situation where, if they do go down, they don’t have the same wage bill, We’ve done our preparation on that front.”

“It’s for the manager and the trainers to maximise what they’ve got, I’m still working to make sure that if there’s something we can revive from the past, we do it. We haven’t given up on it. We’ll try to achieve that.”
