Shaun Miller had cause for a double celebration on Saturday, with his winning strike at Southend United proving to be the 100th goal of his senior career.

Miller, whose first career goal came for Crewe Alexandra in March 2007 against a Blackpool side featuring Ian Evatt in defence, had been one away from the personal milestone since September, when he netted against his first club in an EFL Trophy fixture at the University of Bolton Stadium.

Injuries have forced the 33-year-old to watch on from the treatment table for much of the campaign but after being handed an opportunity as a substitute at Roots Hall, Miller believes he can now put his past troubles behind him and focus on firing Bolton up the League Two table.

"I'm delighted to get my first league goal and also my 100th career goal," Miller told The Bolton News. "I was over the moon with that one.

"I have known for a while because obviously I have been stuck on 99 for quite a bit.

"When I came to the club I was on 98 and got one straight away but since then I have been sat there injured and unable to do anything about it.

"I have been training for a while now but just to be back in the mix is great. I felt I did okay at the start of the season before I got injured so now I want to contribute everything I can between now and the end of the season."
