'If It's Football, It's Vital'

RUFC - Barker 'more experience than before'

Rotherham United striker, Richie Barker told The Star that he is pleased to be back in a Millers shirt and thinks that he has more experience than he had last time he played for us.

'I'm more experienced, in better condition and more knowledgeable than I was when I was at Rotherham before,' he said.

'I had some great times here and am probably remembered best for two of my goals - the one at Hillsborough in the League and the one in the Cup against Southampton. I hope to bring the same workrate as I had before and a few more goals. When I was here before towards the end of the Championship it was really hard; I don't think people realised how hard.'

He said it was manager, Mark Robins who convinced him to come back and that other clubs were after him, 'It's dragged on for a bit for various reasons but the longer it has gone on the more I have been able to check up on the club's progress. They have coped better than Bournemouth and Luton with pulling the minus points back and this also helped persuade me to come back.'

Richie came on today as sub and scored the fourth goal in a four-one win at Don Valley over Grimsby Town.
