However, the striker was frustrated not to take anything from the game.

Joe Ironside’s spot-kick pegged the Iron back, after dominating for large parts.

Miller told iFollow Iron: ‘I’m pleased (to have played the full game). The gaffer trusted me to start and I want to repay him and score goals for him.”

“It was frustrating (to have lost). The goal knocked the wind out of our sails and gave them a boost.

“Up until then, we were the better team by miles; we had them penned in. It gives me confidence we can create.”

The 21-year-old came close to a dream debut, with the woodwork denying him a first goal in Iron colours on his first appearance for the club.

He said: “We had quite a few chances, but not many clear cut. I should’ve done better; I hit the bar.  We had the share of possession, we had the shots and we deserved more.”

He talked through the chance: “I got past my defender, toe poked it past the ‘keeper and I thought it was in but it wasn’t to be.”

Leading the line alongside Kyle Wootton, Miller enjoyed playing alongside the number nine.

“He’s a target man and I think I do best when I play with target men. He’s a good lad and he works hard,” he continued.

“He does the headers and the nasty side of the game, and I can try to play off him,” Miller added.
