The 31-year-old has been beset by injuries and personal problems since he arrived at the New York Stadium in the summer but has recently returned to the side and has scored in the last two outings following a three-month absence.

He limped out of Saturday's 3-1 win over Northampton, but Evans does not expect the injury to be serious and is delighted to have his man back in the fray.

"David Noble is a top, top player, I have said it many times," the Millers boss said. "He was a big signing for me in the summer, David has come through a couple of bad injuries and a personal situation, but he is back fit and desperate to play.

"We were able to play him in three or four training ground games in recent weeks and we have put him on a mini-pre-season with (coach) Paul Warne to get his fitness up. His match fitness is a different type - passing and touch never leaves you. He will play a big part in our promotion push."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
