"A few months ago we would have lost that one," says Millers ace Towell
The Millers stretched their unbeaten run to seven games after Ryan Williams’ early goal was cancelled out by Latics hit-man Craig Davies. That’s now four away games on the bounce without defeat.
No-one typified the Millers’ desire to earn points on the road more than Brighton loanee Towell, who boss Paul Warne revealed suffered a bout of illness after playing the full 90 minutes.
Towell told the Advertiser: “Everyone knew what our away record was like last season so to have taken wins and draws from our last half a dozen away games is a good thing and it keeps the unbeaten run going.
“You don't want to be getting beat, you need to be picking up points at all stages. Maybe a few months ago we would have lost that one at Oldham but you could see the lads putting their bodies on the line and really working hard for the team.”
Next up is two important home games for Rotherham, against play-off hunting Portsmouth on Saturday and promotion hopefuls Bradford on Tuesday evening.
And Towell is eager to keep up the recent good form.
He added: “The lads are playing really well lately so we're ready for any challenge that comes next.”
