Rotherham United boss Steve Evans raves about Jonson Clarke-Harris following win v Leeds United in Championship

Elland Road East Stand

Jonson Clarke-Harris, who scored against Leeds United in the Championship on Friday, is a ‘special talent’, claims Rotherham United manager Steve Evans.

Leeds United must still be reeling from the 2-1 defeat to Rotherham United at the New York Stadium on Friday.

The West Yorkshire rivals took the lead in the Championship encounter on the half-hour mark through Mirco Antenucci, but the Millers staged a second-half comeback to pick up all three points.

Rotherham equalised in the 58th minute through Alex Revell’s first league goal of the season, and just seven minutes later Jonson Clarke-Harris made it 2-1. The 20-year-old collected the ball in midfield, drove forward and slammed it home.

Following the match, Rotherham manager Steve Evans raved about the youngster’s performances and said that he is a ‘special talent’.

‘People should remember his name, we think he is a special talent’, The Star quotes Evans as saying. ‘We beat some big clubs in the Championship to get his services. He has got all the attributes in terms of physicality. He needs to be instilled with confidence every day and I will be the manager that gives him that.

'He really has every attribute. He is very talented, he is strong, but at times he has a schoolboy approach with his runs. We really think he could be a real find and talent, but we need to work with him’.

Rotherham are currently 15th in the Championship table with 15 points from 12 matches and next face Fulham at home on Tuesday.
