The Scot was shown a straight red card in the 5-1 home defeat to Leyton Orient on the opening day and has watched the Cumbrians concede another 11 goals in their next three matches as he sat out a three-game ban.

"It's been very hard to watch from the sidelines these last few weeks," Miller told the club's official website. "There's obviously nothing much you can do.

"You can give as much positive encouragement and input as possible before a game and during the week, but there's nothing you can actually do out on the pitch.

"I've let the boys down and it feels like I've let myself down."

Manager Greg Abbott is fearing for his job following last week's 4-0 home defeat to Coventry and Miller, expected to return to the starting line-up at Colchester on Friday, added: "There were a lot of down bodies - beaten, defeated - in the dressing room after the Coventry game, but we have got to pick ourselves up.

"I just want to get back to it now. I've only had 30 minutes and I really am distraught about that."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
