Style of play led to Miller's decision to join Rovers

13 January 2023

Todd Miller says the style of football on offer at Rovers was the main factor in him agreeing to join on loan from Brighton and Hove Albion.

The winger had multiple options at his disposal within Sky Bet League Two when choosing where to spend the remainder of the season.

But after doing his research, Miller decided Rovers would best suit his attributes.

“It was about the football,” the 20-year-old said. “The football is really good here.

“I had a look at other clubs and spoke to a few people and everyone was saying how good the football is here and talking about where the gaffer has taken the team since he’s been here.

“It was a big interest for me to play under this style of play and I feel personally that he can bring the best out of me.

“It was a football-based thing and a gut feeling for me to come here.

“Brighton are known for their football so it was an easy choice to come here because the football is among the best in the league.”

Miller became Colchester United’s youngest ever player in 2019 prior to joining Brighton, for whom he has featured in the Papa John’s Trophy.

“I feel that before I was more of a kick-and-run player and some people might still think that,” he said. “But I feel like since I’ve been at Brighton, my game has adapted quite a lot and I’m sure I’ll learn plenty from the gaffer while I’m here.

“I feel like my game is better in the sort of games where I can express myself a bit more, it’s more open and I can get the ball to feet.

“I’ve enjoyed playing men’s football, the challenge, the battle and I’m looking to hopefully keep that run going in the men’s environment.

“I’m here to develop as a player and be as good as I can be. I think that’ll happen if I give 100 per cent every day. I’ll get that back from the gaffer and hopefully I’ll be able to get out on the pitch and perform.”
