'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Miller Was Worth The Gamble

Much has been made about the costs of bringing Ishmael Miller to Huish Park over the past couple of days. The Nottingham Forest loanee wouldn't have come cheap but players of his ilk aren't going to are they?

As long as The Glovers haven't gone completely made with the 'budget blowing' to sign Miller I back the decision and such a move would prove priceless if it keeps us in the SkyBet Championship.

Miller's goal ratio of one in two is a ration that will keep us up if he keeps producing at such a rate.

The decision to bring Miller back from his hamstring injury is one that Gary Johnson has admitted to The Western Gazette was 'a gamble' but with Kieffer Moore suspended and Miller fit enough to play some part, with a win needed, it was a gamble worth taking.

It certainly paid off as he scored our goals.

'It was a gamble and we have to manage these things. We knew Kieffer Moore would be out as our other presence striker.

'Ishmael isn't going to be able to run around for 90 minutes, he isn't fit enough to do that as he keeps getting these problems but we need him to be there for the one or two opportunities.

'That's seven goals in 13 games and if we manage to stay up it's because we managed to find a striker that scored in every other game. We needed to find a striker with that ratio.

'That's brought other lads to the fore because they're are assisting. We know how he's playing and when he does run he's a danger and he showed that.'

Not so positive was the fact that he limped away from the game with 20 minutes to play, which could put his place in doubt against Ipswich at Huish Park tomorrow night in doubt.

Johnson remains cautiously optimistic though with him taking him of more as a precaution as opposed to any serious doubts about his availability for our next game and hopes that Miller and James Hayter can continue their partnership.

Seven goals in 13 appearances is impressive in anybodies books, but for a string of disallowed goals and a missed penalty too who knows how many he would have had and where we'd be. If he can keep himself fit, and maintain his current ratio, surely we'll stay in the SkyBet Championship.
