Johnny Mullins: Can score again for Rotherham

Johnny Mullins: Can score again for Rotherham

The journey for value in this weekend's League Two preview takes us to New York - the New York Stadium in Rotherham to be precise.

The Millers look to continue their charge for promotion with victory over struggling Dagenham and enter the contest on a six-match unbeaten run.

Winning 4-0 at Oxford in midweek has provided plenty to smile about for supporters and boss Steve Evans was all smiles himself after the Kassam Stadium success.

"We got a bit of fortune with the deflected first goal but there was no fortune about the other three goals we ripped them open three times.

"We're a very attacking side, we've got some very positive players. But it was also a really solid and industrious win.

"In the second half it was about keeping our shape and our discipline. The spine of the team was particularly strong. It's just three more points on the road to where we want to get to.

"We could have won 4-3 and it wouldn't have mattered, it would have been the same three points. I think our players can get better too."

The scorer of Rotherham's third goal against the U's was skipper Johnny Mullins and it's worth getting with him on Saturday in the anytime goalscorer market.

The defender has scored for two games running after also striking the late equaliser in last weekend's 1-1 draw at Southend.

It was a super effort that saw Mullins net against Oxford - the club with whom he scored twice during an eight-game loan spell earlier in the season - and he also poses a consistent threat in the air.

Mullins' recent record also includes the only goal of the game in the home win against Chesterfield three weeks ago so he really is one to watch.

Back him to find the net again on Saturday.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
