Manager Andy Scott has poured praise on striker Lewis Grabban in light of the blistering start to his Rotherham career.
The Millers boss tempted the 23-year-old to step down to League Two after he was released by Millwall in the summer and his two goals in Saturday's FA Cup win at Barrow took his tally to 11 from 20 games.
Grabban's goals have taken on extra significance following the exit of Adam Le Fondre in August and Scott, who worked with him at Brentford, knew he would stand up to the pressure.
"I always knew he could score goals," Scott said. "He has always had ability, he has just never had a break and a run of games.
"It was difficult to persuade to come up here in the summer because he is a better player than League Two. The thing that stuck in his mind is that I told him I believe in him and he would get the chance to prove how good he is.
"He could have even had a few more goals. He's a threat all the time."
