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

RUFC - Walker out to prove a point

Rotherham United's latest loan signing, Josh Walker impressed on his first game at Burton as he admitted if he wants to play regular football then he might have to drop down a level.

The twenty-one year old Geordie came through the Youth Academy at Middlesbrough and made eleven first team appearances last season although he says it was a bit stop-and-start.

Speaking to The Advertiser, Walker said, 'My situation at Middlesbrough wasn't great. I played and then got injured and then was in and out of the team. And, I felt I would be lucky if I made it into the squad of eighteen. I think I'm better than that and I want to prove people wrong at Middlesbrough and I've come here to do that.'

The central-midfielder isn't new to going out on loan as he's had spells with Bournemouth, Aberdeen and Northampton before joining the Millers.

'I've found that the Championship is much faster than the Premier League and League Two is a lot faster again. The ball is in the air quite a bit and you need to adjust your game. But, if you do manage to get your foot on the ball then players give you a little bit of respect.

'I like to think that passing is one of my strengths and I always give one hundred per cent.'

Speaking about the defeat at Rochdale on Tuesday night, Walker said, 'I don't think we were as bad as the four-nil scoreline suggests. At one-nil we dug in but then the own goal knocked the stuffing out of us. But, it's not something to get down about. Rochdale aren't top of the table for nothing.'

Although Josh's deal is originally for a month, it seems that if the club suits him and he suits the club he will be able to stay until the end of the season, which includes the play-offs.

'Rotherham are doing well in the league and it will give me a great sense of pride if we can get promoted.'

'The ball is played in the air quite a bit' - I think that's just Moore, to be honest, Josh.
