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

RUFC - Paddy will work hard for new contract

Rotherham United's Stephen Brogan made his second first team start of the season in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy loss to Huddersfield on Tuesday and said he was glad to be involved again, though he understands that it's hard to change a winning team.

Speaking to MillersPlayer after the game, the twenty-two year old said, 'I've spoken to Ronnie Moore a few times about playing and he's told me that as long as I'm fit, which I wasn't at the start of the season, I'll be in his plans. Whether that will be in a starting place or in the squad just coming on then we'll just have to wait and see. I've performed well and scored a few goals in the Reserves and it always helps scoring to hopefully it will put me in good stead.

'From a personal point of view, I think I should have been involved before tonight but he's the manager and he makes the decisions. The team had been doing well until the last couple of weeks when they've struggled and I've been raring to go but that's his job and he picks the players who he thinks will do the best for his team and rightly so, if I'm not fit and been injured then I haven't a problem with that. But, now I've put my foot in the door, hopefully I'll be in his plans.

'I had a few injuries at the start of the season, like a lot of other players have, but it gets more talked about with me because it's 'Brogan broke his leg and he was out for eighteen months and he's not got back to fitness' which isn't the case. I was fit for a long time last season but obviously didn't get a chance.

'I'm happy at Rotherham and this is where I want to be and it's my home town and it's also my living and I'll work as hard as I can whether it's coming on as a sub or in the starting eleven to earn another contract.'

Speaking about the game against Huddersfield, Brogan said, 'It was difficult tonight. We came upon a good Huddersfield team although we didn't perform as well as we should have done which the manager let us know about after the game. But I was still delighted to be involved and hopefully will be involved with the league game on Saturday.'
