MILLER IS GRATE­FUL TO HIS PAL

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

GARY Miller is fight­ing fit again and the Ply­mouth right-back cred­its team­mate Con­nor Smith for get­ting him through his an­kle in­jury.

The 29-year-old made his re­turn last week­end af­ter two months, much of it spent along­side Smith as the mid­fielder, 24, nursed his own an­kle knock.

“We pro­gressed to­gether in the gym, on the bikes and swim­ming, and built from there,” said Miller.

“Con­nor would force me to get through it and it was good to have some­body try­ing to mo­ti­vate me.

“It’s never great to be in­jured, but when some­body has a sim­i­lar in­jury it helps a bit.”
