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

RUFC - Rhodes 'I'll keep plugging away'

Rotherham United winger, Alex Rhodes, admits that he was a little shocked when the manager sent him out on loan to Blue Square Premier side Woking Town.

'I've really enjoyed my time at Rotherham,' the pacey winger told the Yorkshire Post, 'and ideally, I'd like to stay. Even though I've been out of the team, I've still being enjoying it there and the team spirit is second to none. The team are going so well at the moment, it will be hard for me to get back into the side.

'I thought I was playing well, but, things change and that's part and parcel of football. I was shocked to start with because I didn't think I'd been doing anything differently and thought I'd been playing well.

'Getting knock backs is part of football and you have to deal with it and I'll keep plugging away. Whether it means getting a call back or having to wait until the end of the season to speak to the manager then that's fine. If it's 'yes' or 'no' there will be other doors open to me.'

Woking are in the midst of a relegation battle at the moment and Rhodes said, 'Woking are a big club in the non-league who, at the moment, are struggling. They've lost a lot of player through injury but if they can get all the team together then they have a good chance of getting out of the situation they are in.'

Alex joined the Millers in June last year from Bradford City after manager, Mark Robins, had been impressed with the way he had played against his team and was given a twelve month contract.
