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

RUFC - Broughton is optimistic

Rotherham United striker, Drewe Broughton says one of the reason the team is near the top of League Two is because of the fierce competition for places.

The former Norwich City trainee told The Advertiser that he knows when he gets his chance in the Millers starting line-up he has to perform. And, the thirty-one year old did that on Saturday against Bradford and rounded his performance off with a goal.

'You have to be on the top of your game,' Broughton said, 'and that's the beauty of having a chairman who is backing the manager and letting him spend so much money. Competition does the job for you because you know you have to perform or you'll be out of a contract.'

Speaking about the game at Bradford, Broughton said, 'I hadn't played for a while and by the time I scored my goal I was cramping up. It was a great performance from the lads.

'It was a long week after the Luton game and the gaffer said we had to get back to basics and regain the pure work ethic and it was about getting down to sheer hard work, fighting for the badge and fighting for each other.

'The quality we have here is ridiculous but without fight you're never going to win anything. The best teams fight first and play second.

'At this stage in my career I want to be playing but I want to be playing for a team that's at the top. And, I'm really optimistic that come the beginning of January we can be in a great spot.'
