Miller pleased to net another brace

26 October 2021

Walsall forward George Miller was pleased to add another two goals to his total against Barrow on Saturday.

The 23-year-old netted his sixth and seventh goals for the club as the Saddlers twice took the lead against the Bluebirds but were twice pegged back as they played out a 2-2 draw.

Miller was full of praise of Head Coach Matt Taylor and his teammates who are supplying him the chances, particularly Hayden White who provided an excellent assist for his exquisite second goal.

The striker feels he’s been getting into the right positions and feels getting off the mark early in matches has been beneficial.

“It’s key scoring earlier, it makes your life a lot easier and it settles the game,” Miller said.

“I was at the right place at the right time and I’ll take a few more of them this season if they drop to me.”

“(For the second) Plaudits go to Hayden; he’s worked really hard and I’ve just put the cherry on the cake and put it in so I’m thankful for his work and I’ll take that goal.

“It’s credit to the gaffer. He’s given me confidence, he’s not pressuring me and he’s taken the restraints off me and let me do, not what I want, but what I feel comfortable with and that’s when I’ve been playing my best.

“Any manager who has given me that free reign, I’ve repaid and hopefully I can keep repaying him with goals so credit to him.”

The draw on Saturday saw the Saddlers extend their unbeaten sequence to six in all competitions.

While Miller is frustrated that the team didn’t pick up three points given the chances they had against Barrow, the striker does take encouragement that the Saddlers have become tough to beat.

“It’s positive not losing,” he commented.

“We’re not losing but it’s not as if we’re coming from behind, we’re winning games and we should be taking all three points if we want to be challenging at the top end of the table, we can’t afford to keep doing that.”
