The 29-year-old finally completed a switch to New York following a year-long pursuit by Millers boss Steve Evans and he made his full debut in Tuesday's Capital One Cup win over Sheffield Wednesday.

However, a thigh injury during pre-season training with Bournemouth meant his substitute's appearance in the season-opener at Crewe was his first action of the summer.

"Last week was my first bit of game time since five or six games from the end of last season, so I have had no game time whatsoever," Tubbs said.

"I have done a bit of running but had four weeks off with a thigh strain and after that I signed here so I've only had a week's worth of training.

"It might take a couple of games for me to get to my best."

Tubbs, who played under Evans at Crawley, initially joined the Millers on a six-month loan deal but has not ruled out extending his stay.

"I am never one to shut a door on anything, I will keep my options open which I think any professional should do," he added.

"So at the end of that six months who knows?"

    Bell steers England to victory, hosts take 2-1 Ashes lead

    Ian Bell guided England to an eight-wicket victory over Australia in the third test at Edgbaston on Friday to put the hosts 2-1 up in the series with two matches to play. Bell (65 not out) and Joe Root, with an unbeaten 38, anchored the chase after England were set to 121 to win on the third day at Edgbaston where a dominant performance banished memories of a heavy defeat at Lord's. England lost Alastair Cook (7) and Adam Lyth (12) to set a few nerves on edge but Bell, dropped on 20 by Australia captain Michael Clarke, made his second 50 of the match to spark raucous celebrations after Root hit the winning runs.

    No snow no problem as China's financial might lands 2022 Games

    The snow will be fake, but the very real financial muscle China boasts proved decisive on Friday when Beijing won the right to host the 2022 Winter Olympics. Games officials meeting in Kuala Lumpur voted for the Chinese capital over the lure of a winter wonderland offering from Kazakhstan's Almaty, in a clear sign that the International Olympic Committee is craving solidity and security after a series of problems and headaches. While Rio scrambles to make up lost time in its building for the 2016 Olympics, and Tokyo is embroiled in a stadium drama the allure of a megacity with a cast-iron financial guarantee proved irresistible.
