Defender Kirk Broadfoot believes a midweek match is just what Rotherham United need as the Championship battle for survival hots up.

The Millers were edged out 2-1 at the weekend by 21st-placed Wigan and saw the gap between them and the drop zone cut to six points.

Steve Evans’ men travel to Nottingham Forest on Wednesday, and centre-half Broadfoot said: “I think after a disappointing result it’s important to have a game so quickly,

“There’s no time to dwell on it and get disappointed.

“We look forward to Nottingham Forest and going to a magnificent stadium. It’ll be a tough game but it’s one we’re looking forward to.”

The Scottish international is relishing a spell in the Millers side in his favoured position after a season disrupted by injuries and filling in at full-back.

“It’s massively important to get a run in my proper position,” he said.

“I’ve always said it’s not easy coming in and out of the team, especially when you’re not coming in in your usual position. I’ve played at the level before. I always knew I could play here and that I just needed a run of games and to get over a few niggling injuries. I’m enjoying it,”
