Rotherham United are hoping to add to their squad before the transfer window closes next Monday.

Manager Steve Evans revealed: “We’ve made a couple of enquires for players at Championship clubs. We’ll see where that goes.

Evans has made 14 signings through the summer but feels his squad is still “two or three players light”.

“We know who we’d like to bring in,” he added. “We’d like to do some business.”

Meanwhile, Evans praised the defensive solidity his team have shown since stepping up to the Championship.

“(Centre-halves) Craig Morgan and Kari Arnason have been good in every game they’ve played,” he said.

“We have Richard Wood and Kirk Broadfoot who can play there, and the boys know they have to perform.

“There were always question marks - by others, not by us - as to whether they would make the step up, but we’re four games in and so far so good.”

Broadfoot has been filling in at right-back in the injury absence of fellow new signing Frazer Richardson.

Evans added: “I watched Kirk a number of times there for Blackpool last season. Especially away from home, they would deploy him at right-back.

“He was a real solid and reliable defender. It’s not his natural position but he’s done that job for us.

“The big man will play wherever we pick him.

“We try and get him a nosebleed! We try to get him up the pitch and attacking.

“He’s a terrific player and, more importantly, he’s a terrific professional.

“He comes in with a lot of pride and he’s doing a reliable job.

“The one consistent part of our game is that we’ve been good at the back.”

The Millers play tonight in the Capital One Cup against Swansea who have won both of their opening matches in the Premier League.
