RUFC - Marshall 'come down to go up'

RUFC - Marshall 'come down to go up'

Rotherham United took striker, Marcus Marshall on an emergency months' loan last week and, for a young man, he certainly seems to have got his head screwed on the right way.

Speaking to The Advertiser this week, the twenty year old said, 'Sometimes you've got to come down to get back up.'

Marcus has worked with some big names already in his short career - Paul Ince, Mark Hughes and Sam Allardyce, to name but a few - and says that Rovers' centre-forward, Jason Roberts has been a big role model for him.

'He's always talking to me and suggesting ways I can get better,' Marshall said.

But the young man isn't exactly a stranger to South Yorkshire as he played for neighbours Doncaster Rovers when he was sixteen but was released and spotted by Blackburn while playing in a College game at Nottingham.

Before he came here, Marcus admits that he didn't know much about Rotherham so went on the internet to check out the players. 'I trained here last week for a couple of days to see how I found it and how they found me. Then the gaffer asked me if I'd like to come on a months loan.

'I want to get as much first team football as I can and want to show what I can do. I'm pacey and tricky and like to run at players, get by them and score. I want to get crosses in and produce an end product.'

If the month goes well then the chance is there for Marshall, and his fellow Blackburn team-mate and Millers loanee, Gavin Gunning, to stay on.

'I still want to cut it in the Premier League,' Marshall said, 'but I'm open minded and if I'm enjoying it and starting and playing well then of course, I'd consider staying.'
