Cureton, who has scored six goals in seven games so far this season, has been through what for him is a surprisingly barren spell, not scoring for two games.

The Royals recorded a 0-0 draw at Millmoor on Saturday, many chances went begging for both sides, not even Curo could break the deadlock.

Whilst the 27-year-old felt his side put in a good display Royal's number twelve Jamie Cureton wasn't satisfied with his performance.

Speaking after the game Cureton told "As a team we're happy to take a point, but we feel that we had the chances to have won it. Overall though, it's a clean sheet, and they're a tough side.

"Personally, I'm a little disappointed. I had a couple of half chances and normally I'd hit the target but I put them wide. Normally if I get a chance I'll at least make the 'keeper save so that was a little disappointing.

"Overall we're quite pleased, we've battled away. Derby got beat here, I'm sure other teams will too, and we've managed to keep our run going.

"I've been scoring freely so far this season so I'm due a bit of a barren patch but hopefully it won't last too many games."

Former Rotherham captain Kevin Watson missed an absolute sitter for the Royals as the game approached it's finale. Goalie Mike Pollitt spilled the ball giving Watson an open goal to tap the ball into but he somehow put it wide.

Curo added: "He got a bit of stick going back to face his old team, but it was a bit of luck for them that his chance went wide."
