Published Add your comment

Struggling Yorkshire side Rotherham United have brought in Burnley full back Daniel Lafferty on emergency loan.

The 25-year-old full back has been brought to the New York Stadium to help move them further away from the relegation zone as Wigan mount serious pressure on the Millers having won their past two games against Blackpool and Norwich.


Lafferty, is hoping that his style of player will improve Rotherham's fortunes as they have only managed one win in the past six league games.

Lafferty told the Rotherham United club website: "I like to get forward like a modern day full-back and understand you have to have the engine to get up and down the pitch."


Lafferty, has found game time restricted for Burnley in the Premier League having only made two appearances this term but will be hoping he can take his experience of finishing runners up in the Championship with Burnley last season to keep Wigan at bay.

The Irishman could be thrown into the relegation battle this weekend and it will be into the vicious Yorkshire derby between Huddersfield and Rotherham at the John Smith's stadium.

A real test but Lafferty must be at his best to keep the likes of Sean Scannell, Nahki Wells, Ishmael Miller and James Vaughan quiet.
