Leon Best will be out to show Huddersfield Town what they are missing when he leads the line for Rotherham United at the New York Stadium.

The former Blackburn Rovers and Newcastle United striker had a trial and talks with Town when Chris Powell was manager earlier this season.

Republic of Ireland international Best, who was a free agent after leaving Blackburn, played in an Under 21 match against Ipswich Town at PPG Canalside.

But despite the discussions, no deal was forthcoming, and the 29-year-old, who has also played for Southampton and Coventry City, moved on.

He joined Rotherham in mid-November, and has scored four times in 12 games, eight of them starts.

Former Town manager Neil Warnock’s Millers squad also includes former Town wideman Danny Ward.

The 24-year-old, who was a League I play-off winner with Town in 2012, joined Rotherham in January 2015 after a loan stint.

He has netted four goals this season, with ex-Nottingham Forest forward Matt Derbyshire topping the club chart with eight.
