'No better way'

23 April 2013

TOMMY Miller is hoping to have returned to fitness in time to lend his considerable experience to Town’s Play-Off campaign. 

The midfielder played in all three of Huddersfield’s Play-Off campaign last season, including the final at Wembley in front of 52,100 as the Terriers won promotion after a penalty shoot-out against Sheffield United.

Despite not having played for Swindon since the home draw with Notts County at the end of March, the 34-year old has his eyes on another day to remember.

He told Swindontownfc.co.uk: “We have had a good season so far and we want to finish it off with promotion. 

“I think we have a great chance in the Play-Offs. We have been up there pretty much all season and it’s a shame we are not in the automatic spots, because I think we are good enough.

“If there is any way to get promoted then it’s through the Play-Offs. Wembley is a fantastic day out for the players and fans. Last year was a fantastic experience with Huddersfield and hopefully we can do it again this year and reach the Championship.”

Miller explains how the injury came about and admits he could return to action in time for the final League One match at Glanford Park this weekend.

 “The initial injury happened against Walsall many weeks ago and I didn’t think much of it. It was sore but I had to miss a few training sessions although got through a few games. 

"Something wasn’t right so I had a scan and it showed two tears in my calf. It wasn’t the best of news but hopefully that’s the worst of it over now.

“Saturday isn’t out of the question. No player likes to be injured especially at such an important time of the season. I am hoping to be fit soon and may have a chance for the Scunthorpe game.”
