    Should be noted they planned a debut in the EFL trophy at the start of last month, but he got injured a couple of days beforehand and is only coming back now

    On for his debut today; last ten minutes away to Gillingham as they look to hold on to a 1-0 lead and earn automatic promotion.

    In fact - he's just scored on his debut to make it 2-0 and confirm promotion.

    Scored in a 4-2 win over Parkgate tonight. Only played the first half, so that's two goals in 55 minutes for Rotherham. OK, this was a pre-season friendly against a local non-league side where they put out a completely different side for the second half, so it's not quite the same as scoring the goal that settled promotion in May. But it'd be great if he got a run in the side now that he's over his initial injury; we're not exactly blessed with options up front and if he can score goals in the Championship, he'd have to be an option (weird and all as that sounds, having seen him play at the Bowl for three years!)

    Weirder things have happened. Remember the fish!!

    Another one against Doncaster. Starting to seem like he might actually be good at football.

    Sounds like Ogbene put in a good shift too.

    FWIW, i am a Kelly skeptic. Absolute gem of a person and can hit the net when given chances but I truly think his ceiling will turn out to be in around League 1 as the other parts of his game (his touch and awareness in particular) are not to the standard required for a higher level from what I have seen.

    Only my opinion, but he's much better than Sammon was at any stage.

    Sammon must have been the worst or one of the worst to get a competitive cap?

    Thought he never really let us down in fairness. Bit like Daryl Horgan in that way maybe? Limited but with a great attitude which definitely helped.

    There's others like Ronan Curtis, James Collins and even Will Keane who've struggled to make an impact lately. (I think that's a bit harsh on Keane and he may well be an option in the coming couple of years, but for now he probably counts)
