Lee Camp will be crucial for Rotherham’s survival hopes

The Rotherham United and former England Under-21 goalkeeper Lee Camp, will need to be on top form as he was last term if the Millers are going to survive their third consecutive season in the Championship.

Camp was signed under former manager Steve Evans in 2015 and proved to be an inspired signing. The Derby-born shot stopper generally kept Rotherham in games on many occasions pulling off crucial saves. This meant he was instantly accepted with open arms by the Rotherham supporters.

They will hope he can find similar form as to what he had last season. This will be immensely important to whether the Millers remain a Championship side.

The goalkeeper is the key player in the spine of a team and arguably can be seen as the most important player on the pitch, being the last line of defence that is. Furthermore, Saturday’s game against Wolves showed that, at times the experienced Rotherham defence, even when against ten men, can be breached. Camp will need to be there to make up for such mistakes.

Should Camp show similar goal preventing exploits as to what made him such a success last season then I am confident Rotherham have a fairly high chance of remaining a Championship side come the end of the season.
