Miller Alex in loan move to revive career

ROTHERHAM United hope winger Alex Rhodes can resurrect his career during his loan move to Blue Square club Woking.

After being a regular up to mid-December, the 27-year-old left winger has made only two starts since.

"Alex hasn't figured in the side for a while now and I feel hat this is the right time and the right move for him.

"Let's hope he does well there and see how he goes," commented Millers manager Mark Robins.

Woking are managed by former Millers defender Phil Gilchrist and former Rotherham midfielder Paolo Vernazza plays for them.

Meanwhile, it is hoped that meetings between the Millers and authorities at the Don Valley Stadium will prove beneficial following the recent pitch problems that caused postponements.

Sheffield International Venue officials had talks with the football club about the pitch, one of a series of ongoing discussions with the Millers and other users following the recent postponement of Rotherham's game with Morecambe due to a waterlogged pitch.
