RUFC - Broughton 'it's been a long three months'

RUFC - Broughton 'it's been a long three months'

Rotherham United striker, Drewe Broughton has been left out in the cold, often seen sat next to Vital member, Sausage's flag, this season (and it's not that warm a place to sit!), since breaking a toe in pre-season. But, after coming off the subs bench and hitting the winner last Saturday at Crewe, he might just have taken the eye of new boss, Ronnie Moore.

Speaking to The Advertiser, the thirty year old said, 'It's been a long three months out of the side and the infrequency of the Reserve games has been difficult because you can't get any momentum.

'I have to prove myself all over again to a new manager. Mark Robins brought me here, but I didn't get any favours from him. If I was cr*p one week he would soon drop me and, I know it's a cliche, but you are only as good as your last outing.

'Like everyone, I want regular football and there is competition between me and Tom Pope this season, like there was last season between me and Richie Barker. There is a squad of twenty-two and everyone wants to be in the starting eleven because that's your job.'

Speaking about new boss, Ronnie Moore, Broughton says, 'Ronnie is a motivator and has a big presence, more like I was used to with Paul Ince at MK Dons. Mark Robins was more hands on.

'I've seen many changes of managers in my career but whoever is in charge, the principal is the same. He will expect us to be professional and do our jobs and he'll pick the best team.'
