Widdowson gaining experience

Joe Widdowson made his third and final appearance for Rotherham United on Tuesday night although it was a difficult night for the League Two promotion chasers.

Widdowson, 19, has ended a month's loan at Millmoor and, after sitting out the first two fixtures upon signing for the Yorkshire club, the left-back got three full 90 minutes under his belt in what is a competitive division. That was summed up by the 3-0 loss at mid-table Bury, with Widdowson having previously played in the 1-1 draw at Shrewsbury Town and the 1-0 home defeat by Accrington Stanley.

His debut saw him singled out as man of the match by Rotherham manager Mark Robins. Academy director Tony Carr said: "Joe has played a few games now. It is a good experience for him and I am sure he will come back better for it." Meanwhile, 19-year-old Jack Jeffery is continuing his loan at Conference outfit Cambridge United, with the striker yet to start but having made a couple of substitute appearances.
