As good as Rotherham United’s results have been since they gained promotion to League One, Matt Tubbs is still waiting to make a significant contribution to their play-off tilt.

Since joining the Millers in July, the striker has struggled to make an impact, failing to score in 11 appearances. The majority of Tubbs’ run-outs have come from the substitutes’ bench.

The forward, on a six-month loan deal from Bournemouth, missed a big portion of pre-season due to injury and is playing catch- up.

He played in Rotherham’s behind closed doors friendly at Leeds United in midweek as he continues to build up his match fitness.

“It’s frustrating because I came here when I was injured,” he said. “I have been doing extra work here and there trying to get myself up to speed.”
