Broadfoot has had roles on both sides at full back, but played centrally during Rotherham’s 0-0 draw with Sheffield Wednesday, in a Yorkshire derby game.

The 30-year-old picked up a yellow card in under ten minutes after a poor challenge on Gary Taylor-Fletcher. He then nearly scored and was involved in the most controversial part of the game, where Kieran Lee went down after his challenge.

But Broadfoot seemed to enjoy his time at centre half, and whats more of a chance in a centralised role, saying to TeamTalk: “That’s what I came here as, a centre-half. I pretty much played at right-back and then a couple of games at left-back and one at centre-half and then I picked up an injury.

“If I can get a run of games at centre-half I will get sharper and back to where I was.

“It’s obviously difficult just getting chucked in in a derby, especially with the way Sheffield Wednesday play, they put you under pressure.

“It’s difficult to find your feet, that comes with games so hopefully I can get a run at centre-back.”
