In my opinion, Ian Sharps, has been Rotherham United's player of the season. While he's been a Miller he's seen the club have thirty-seven points taken off them, been involved in two administrations, had new owners, moved grounds and, something that has probably caused him more stress than any of those, had his photo taken with me and Mex! And still the tall defender is looking on the positive side.
Speaking to The Advertiser, he said, 'There's been a lot of negative stuff going around Rotherham in the time I've been here but let's look on the positive side and remember what's happened to the other two teams who had points taken off them at the start of the season. Luton have gone down and Bournemouth have dropped right back in it.'
Over Easter the Millers won one and drew one and Sharps said, 'Most teams in this division would have taken four out of six points over the Easter weekend. Monday's game at Port Vale was a chance to claw back some points and we were always in control without ever looking like we'd score many goals. There were two tired teams out there and, to be honest, they were there for the taking but we didn't have that extra gear.
'The play-offs do cross my mind and if we get four wins from our last four games you never know. Most of the teams we have to play have something to play for themselves so they will be good games and we will have to be up for them to have a chance.'
David Beddows asked Sharpsy if it was possible, would he like another month at the end of the season and the twenty-eight year old said, 'The legs couldn't take it!'
