He didn't the net quite so frequently in his first season at Millmoor but in his second, he played a major role in helping the team to win the Division Three title hitting the winning goal in the last match of the season against Plymouth Argyle to clinch the crown. On four occasions he scored the vital goal to give Rotherham a 1-0 away win.
Then he maintained a good scoring ratio again the following season when his 13 goals included a hat-trick in a 6-0 demolition of Chelsea
