Smallwood returns to Rotherham


On-loan midfielder Richie Smallwood has been recalled by parent club Rotherham United.

The 26-year-old joined the Iron on loan until the end of the season back in August, but the Millers had a recall clause included in the deal which they have now exercised.

Millers boss Paul Warne explained: “I wanted him back and all the members of staff wanted him back.

“He’s the type of midfielder that we need at this moment in time. He’s hard-working, he’s dogged and he’s got a great attitude.”

Scunthorpe have since recalled Levi Sutton from his loan stay at North Ferriby United.
