The 32-year-old, who starred in the Football League with the now defunct Rushden & Diamonds, arrived at The Walks on loan from Boston United with a huge reputation.

But even though he has started the last two matches and is overcoming injury problems that have blighted his career of late, the former professional is certain his best is yet to come at The Walks.

Mills said: “If I’m brutally honest I think I’m 50pc match fit, I’m probably half a stone overweight, which I’m doing something about.

“I need to get games, I need to train hard and hopefully they’ll see the best of me. But if you’re asking me are people seeing the best me of now, then I’d say no.

“We’ve got games Saturday, Tuesday, Saturday, Wednesday, so hopefully in three of four games I’ll be up to full speed and people can judge me on what I’m doing then. The only way of getting fit is playing games and training hard.”

The playmaker, in his second temporary spell with the Linnets this season, has featured 18 times for Gary Setchell’s men this campaign. He will remain with the Evo-Stik Premier Division club until the end of the season and admits he is happy to be staying at Town for now.

“I am happy at The Walks,” added Mills.

“The major factor of that is the chairman (Buster Chapman), the manager (Gary Setchell), the assistant (Neil Fryatt), the coach (Ross McNeil), the people behind the bar. They make me and my family feel very welcome. That goes a long way in anyone’s book. The lads have been unbelievable with me too.”
