RUFC - Cummins 'delighted to score winner'

RUFC - Cummins 'delighted to score winner'

Rotherham United's experienced midfielder, Micky Cummins, was shocked when Darlington let him go at the end of last season but he got one over on ex-manager, Dave Penney when he scored the winning penalty on Tuesday night to take the Millers through to the next round of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.

'I was delighted to score the winner,' the thirty year old told The Advertiser, 'and I thought we deserved it. After the ninety minutes the gaffer asked who fancied taking a penalty and I volunteered. I knew mine would be the fourth one and when they missed their first two I realised it could be the decider. It put the pressure on a bit but I didn't disappoint. It's funny because, last year in the play-off semi final I was supposed to take a penalty but I came off injured and the lad who took mine missed. He was playing on Tuesday and I asked him if he was taking one and he said 'no'. I thought that was a bit weak. I'm delighted I slotted mine in and now we have a chance of getting to Wembley.

'The rot has set in a bit lately and it showed in the first half when I don't think we were at our best. At half-time the boss gave us a kick up the backside and we came out and performed. Huddy (Mark Hudson) should have scored late on but he made up for it with his penalty.

'We're coming into a period of hard games now and we need to gain points on the teams around us and climb the table. Accrington is your typical non-league set-up and it's a tricky place to go to. But, if we carry on like we finished on Tuesday then we have every chance of getting a result.'
