Rotherham United plummeted to the bottom of the Championship following their 2-1 defeat to Huddersfield Town this Tuesday. However, despite the disappointing results and the inconsistency of team form, youngster Izzy Brown has managed to consistently deliver top quality performances so far this season.
Since joining Rotherham on loan from Chelsea, Brown has enjoyed an abundance of first team involvement with the Yorkshire side. So far this season he has made seven appearances for the club.
Rotherham manager Alan Stubbs has been experimenting with the England youth player, selecting him for both wide and central striking positions. The versatile players’ pace and work rate have made him an instant favourite for the Rotherham faithful, his name being chanted before and during previous matches.
Brown boasts experience in the England under 19 squad. In fact, while on duty for the Three Lions, he scored twice at the home of Rotherham United – The New York Stadium, against Italy in 2014. In addition to this, Brown was on loan to Dutch side SBV Vitesse where he made 22 appearances and scored one goal.
So far Brown has doubled that goal scoring record what he achieved in the Netherlands for Rotherham, scoring a brace in Rotherham’s 2-2 draw with Bristol City and also in their recent 2-1 defeat to Cardiff City.
It is already apparent that Brown plays a key part in the poor performing Rotherham side and surely fans of the Millers will hope that other players find similar form to Izzy to help Rotherham move out of the relegation zone.
Rotherham United host third place Newcastle United this Saturday, 3pm kick off.
