Many people outside the club thought the Millers, after successive promotions and operating on probably the smallest budget in the Championship, might struggle to impose themselves on the second tier.

But after 13 games the club are in 14th place, unbeaten in their last four matches and have claimed the scalps of big guns like Wolves, Blackburn and Leeds.

“It’s gone well. We’re taken it game by game. We’re not getting ahead of ourselves,” said the 29-year-old centre-half.

“We had no idea how we’d do in the league so to have been competing in every games is something we can be proud of, but we can’t sit on that. We’ve got to look to push forward.

“A bad week can put you down and a good week can lift you up, so it’s about maintaining some consistency.

“We always knew what we had in the dressing room. We always knew what spirit we had, so we knew we’d never lie down and get beaten easily or never try. That’s the way we are.

“It’s important that we try to compete in every game. If something bad does happen on the day then you have to dust yourself down, forget about it and go again. “But up to now we’ve given every team a run for their money.”

The Millers looked to be on their way to another victory on Tuesday night against Fulham, but 6ft 7in Dan Burn headed home from a corner in the 90th minute to earn the visitors a 3-3 draw.

Morgan added: The big lad is obviously going to be a threat at set-pieces being as tall as he is.

“It’s cost us the game but he’s about five foot taller than anybody else on the pitch so if the ball is right you’d expect him to get chances at times.

“It’s unfortunate for us that he’s knocked it in.”
