Rotherham United's rising young star, Stephen Brogan told The Advertiser that he was gutted when Alan Knill left the club.
'I'm gutted we lost Alan. We got on really well. He brought me into the club and gave me my chance in the first team. He's been a massive help in my career.
'There's not many managers could cope with starting the season on minus ten and losing the two best players.
'But we went on a bad run and the board acted and they sacked him. It is hard and there are two sides to every story.
'I have to get my head down and get on with my career and Alan won't be around to help me with that. I have to prove myself to everyone - the new manager, the board and the fans.
'I had a feeling we would win last Saturday,' he carried on, 'We had the luck we haven't had for a few games and they had goals disallowed. Knilly was on my mind as I walked off the pitch. I bet he was sat at home thinking 'typical, they went and won 4-1'
'It was brilliant for us to get the win, it's horrible when you're on a losing run. You go home after the games and feel depressed and it's hard to lift yourself in training.
'We have to push on now and look to get out of relegation trouble, if we don't there is no point in playing. Port Vale is a winnable game.'
He finished by saying 'I can't thank Alan Knill enough for the chances he gave me.'
