It's about the team, not me insists Miller

12 March 2023

George Miller insists his only focus during his period without a goal was doing all he could to help Rovers find winning form.

The striker netted his tenth league goal of the campaign to send Rovers on their way to a 2-1 win over AFC Wimbledon on Saturday.

Miller on how the game played out:

“First half, I thought we were good and played some good football. Second half, like in a lot of games recently, it was a bit scrappy and turned into a bit of a fight and sloppy but at the end of the day we got the three points and that’s all that matters.”

On the goal conceded:

“Mitch [Jonathan Mitchell] has saved us on plenty of occasions this season so he’s allowed one mistake. He made up for it with more saves in the game and he’s been one of our best players this season so hats off to him.

“All the lads get around him and it didn’t affect him. He’s a good player. He’s pulled us out of a lot of tricky situations. We get the three points and it’s forgotten about.”

On his goal:

“I spoke to Ben [Close] and just felt like they’d all run in. I told him to cut it back and he did. He put good quality on the ball and I tucked my finish into the bottom corner.

“Recently it’s been like that, with not many chances, probably in the last four or five games. So it’s about taking those chances when we get them. We’d obviously like to create a few more but that will come with time.”

On the gap between goals for him personally:

“I’ve not really taken much notice of it. In those 16 games I’ve had some rubbish games but then I’ve had some really good games. People forget about them. I didn’t play that well in this one but the goal papers over the cracks. When we played Swindon a few weeks ago it was probably one of my best games for Doncaster and I’m rubbish because I didn’t score.”

On coming out of the team:

“It’s not easy to come out but it’s the manager’s decision and he’s the manager for a reason. I think since he’s come in everyone would say they’re a better player for him coming in. We have that respect for him and he makes the decisions.

“I think I was very one dimensional before this gaffer came in. Fans who know football could see that my overall game has improved and my presence has improved. I’m grateful for that.

“Whether you’re starting or not, I don’t think there’s one person in that dressing room who can say they’re not a better player for him being here.”

On the position in the league:

“It’s not a million miles away and we’re still in with a shout so we need to just knuckle down and control what we can control.”
