Skipper plays down away defeats

MILLERS skipper Nick Fenton isn't reading too much into the team's recent away defeats as they launch into one of the busiest months of the season.

Three straight losses at Wycombe, Stevenage and Port Vale have put a dent in the side's normally solid away form and hampered their efforts to put daylight between themselves and fourth place.

The matches form part of a run of  five away games out of seven, a sequence which will be completed by Tuesday's trip to Gillingham and next Saturday's visit to Oxford.

Both competing for promotion, they will both be tough opponents on their home patch but

Fenton reckons that with a bit more luck, the Millers could easily be going there with more points from their travels.

He said. "Have we got travel sickness? I wouldn't say that. We have a good away record so far.

"The Wycombe game was tight but we played very well in the second half there and should have got something from it.

"Stevenage was just one of those nights. It was a rubbish match but we didn't really deserve to lose 3-0. We didn't play well but the result flattered them.

"Again, on Tuesday, there wasn't a lot between the sides."
