Rotherham are only in the automatic spots on goal difference but have a game in hand on MK. More importantly, it calmed the nerves after three consecutive league defeats.
“I think we’ve put a lot of doubters’ comments to rest,” said goalscorer Smith. “But it means nothing if we go into these next four games and don’t carry it on.
“I feel confident. We can’t feel anything but. Hopefully Saturday is a springboard.”
“We spoke about it the day before the Ipswich game,” he added. “It was now or never. We have two weeks left to change our season, change our lives.”
Mikel Miller will be missing after injuring his hamstring on Saturday. Captain Richard Wood is likely to return after only playing stoppage time at the weekend.
