Top-flight defender Harry Toffolo backed Rotherham United to stay up this season as he extended his loan spell with the Championship club.

The England under-20 international will now stay until January 20 with the Millers who are looking to build on last Saturday's 1-0 win at lLeeds United which lifted them off the foot of the table.

The 20-year-old Norwich City left-back has appeared in every game under new Rotherham manager Neil Redfearn since arriving from the Premier League outfit last month.

Toffolo said: "Even before I went on loan to Rotherham, I knew they were a club who played good football, and that it would be only a matter of time before they pushed their way back up the table. I stand by that.

“They’ll bounce back, and Neil certainly has the right players, appetite and management team to do that. It’s a great club to be around on a day-to-day basis."

Toffolo was a half-time substitute for Joe Mattock at Elland Road where the Millers won for the first time in Redfearn's seven matches in charge.

“The Championship is a tough league," the youngster added. "It’s relentless at times, and requires you to hone your game both mentality and physically. I know it’s a bit of a cliché, but anyone really can beat anyone on their day, which is why it’s important to string together a couple of good results.

“It’s always nice when people come up to you and compliment your game or playing style, but for me the team always comes first."
