Rotherham boss Neil Redfearn: Kirk Broadfoot has been our best player

Defender Kirk Broadfoot has endured a roller-coaster time at Rotherham but his current form has made his the stand-out player in recent weeks, says boss Neil Redfearn.

The defender, who missed the opening 10 games of the season through suspension, has been in sparkling form since his return to the side, putting in high quality performances which culminated in a masterful display against Hull on Saturday.

Broadfoot was superb as he kept Abel Hernandez quiet, won all of his headers, find himself in the right place at the right time and won the crucial first-half penalty.

It caps quite a turnaround for the Scot at the Millers.

He endured a tough start to life in South Yorkshire last season after initially being asked to play right-back and then starting nervously at centre-back.

But he came good at the back end of last season alongside Craig Morgan and Farrend Rawson, proving himself to be an important player as Steve Evans' side stayed up.

However, after being slapped with a 10-game ban by the Football Association for comments made to Wigan's James McClean, he was absent for the first part of the campaign and the Millers endured a miserable start.

When his ban expired he forced himself into the side and is now a key component of Redfearn's plans, who has raved about his performances.

"He has been our best player for me for the last four or five games," the boss said. "He is a real leader, he plays with his heart on his sleeve and he heads and kicks and he can play as well. 

"He steps from the back and can pass."
