Rotherham United striker, Mark Burchill, says he will keep fighting for a regular place in the team and he told The Advertiser that he has nothing to prove to anyone at Rotherham United.
'It's been a tough time for me,' the twenty-eight year old said, 'but I don't think I need to prove anything to anyone. I've played at top level and in European football and I'm an international. I'm a good player at this level and the one above and probably the one above that as well. I'm a Rotherham player and I'm deperate to get on the pitch and play and score goals - it's what I came here to do. I've probably had less game time than any senior player at the club this season but if the manager doesn't want to play me for whatever reason there's nothing I can do about that. Football is football and you just have to deal with it.'
Mark began his career with Celtic where he played fifty games, and scored twenty goals before moving to Portsmouth in 2001. While he was there he had various loan spells, including one at Millmoor, before he moved back to Scotland and played twelve games for Hearts and eighty games for Dunfermiline. He came to Rotherham in the summer but got an injury in pre-season. He came on from the bench for a few games and just before Christmas he got two goals in the 3-1 win at Accrington but got a hamstring problem and has found it difficult to get back into the side. Last weekend, Drewe Broughton went off injured and Burchill came on and played a great game. He started against Aldershot on Tuesday night and, to be honest, seemed very shy in front of goal.
'I enjoyed being back,' Burchill said, 'and I'm good enough to play. Hopefully I can get a good run in the team and show what I can do.'
