TOMMY MILLER hailed Danny Cadamarteri’s return to the Huddersfield Town team after the wideman produced an exciting display in the frustrating 1-1 draw with Carlisle.
Experienced Cadamarteri, in his second spell at the Galpharm after returning from Dundee United last January, took the sponsor’s man-of-the-match honours on Friday on his first start of the season and only second appearance.
And his contribution was singled out by fellow 32-year-old Miller.
He said: “Cads put in a really good shift. He’s been outstanding in training, especially over the last few weeks, and deserved his chance.
“It’s hard when you’re not playing week in, week out to keep fit and motivated, but he’s managed to do that and it’s a credit to him.
“He’s a bubbly lad who’s always encouraging the others to do well.
“Every day he comes into training with a bright smile on his face. He’s definitely a character!”
Miller, who set up the equaliser for Jordan Rhodes after Carlisle took an early lead through on-loan Sunderland midfielder Liam Noble, said the Cumbrian visitors were canny in shutting down Town’s normally fluid game.
He explained: “They normally play 4-3-3 but went 4-5-1 against us, flooding the midfield to make it hard for us to play our usual game.
“But we kept going for the win right until the end.
“We created a few chances and were unlucky in front of goal. On another night we might’ve got the three points.”
He also claimed Rhodes was denied a last-minute winner by a good save from Adam Collin.
