One thing has certainly been made crystal clear to Rotherham United fans over the last few weeks, which is that luck is never on your side when you are at the bottom. Despite a number of positive performances in recent games the Millers are still on a desperately poor run of form with more tough games on the horizon. As reported by Yorkshire Post, manager Alan Stubbs has another problem to contend with as defender Kirk Broadfoot's return is being held up by yet another injury problem.
The 32-year-old defender has recently been recovering from a back problem that has kept him out of action since mid-August, and now he has experienced a fresh setback in the form of a foot injury. Broadfoot was instrumental in the club's survival last season and his absence continues to be a big blow for Stubbs.
“It has been frustrating for him." Stubbs said to Yorkshire Post.
“He has got over his back injury and (now) he has been getting a pain in his foot. He has been to see a foot specialist and we are hoping that it just settles down. The surgeon seems to think that it will do.
“We may need to look at providing Kirk with some orthotics to try to alter the balance of his foot and raise the instep to try to take the pressure off where he is feeling the pain."
Broadfoot has been at the New York Stadium for two years now following his move from Blackpool.
It is not ideal news especially considering who Rotherham face tonight, as their opponents Birmingham City will be looking to bounce back in a big way following their 3-1 defeat at the hands of Nottingham Forest.
