Jimmy McNulty made his 400th career appearance in Saturday’s League One against Walsall at the Banks’s Stadium, and Manager Keith Hill is full of praise for the 33-year-old.
“Jim has been a great player for me and an outstanding servant to the game,” said Hill.
“He’s had 400 career appearances and has never been found hiding. He’s not always had great games, but he’s honest with that.
“He backs up the way that I want to try and play the game and he’s an outstanding person as well as a player, as far as I’m concerned.”
And Hill believe McNulty is striking up a good partnership with fellow centre-half Ethan Ebanks-Landell who joined the Club on loan from Wolves last month.
“Jim brings experience to our side. You’re trying to build relationships and I believe he and Ethan Ebanks-Landell have got something to help us in the backbone of the team.
“Ethan has got good experience as well, in that position, and at the minute we’re trying to create a partnership. Equally so, I think Ryan Delaney has done really well at left-back – he gives a little bit more security to Jim.”
