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

RUFC - Mullins 'massive three points'

Rotherham United defender, Johnny Mullins was thrilled to get his first goal for the Millers on Saturday in the four-two win at Burton Albion.

Speaking to MillersPlayer after the game at the Pirelli Stadium, the former Tranmere player said, 'I thought our second half performance was brilliant. At half-time the gaffer told us he wasn`t happy with the first half performance but after they missed the penalty in the second half I thought we dominated the game.

'It`s a massive three points and it was good to get an away win and hopefully we will follow that up on Tuesday.`

Saying it was good to get his first Millers goal, the twenty-five year old said, 'On Friday the gaffer gave me a bit of stick saying I never score so I was happy to get on the end of one but it`s about time. There were some good goals and Alfie`s (Adam Le Fondre) was a great finish and Jaybo`s (Jason Taylor) at the end just put the nail in.`

Asked if this was his best performance in a Millers shirt he said, 'I`m not sure. Gillingham wasn`t my best of games and I`m pleased with the way I played today but we just want to kick on now. It`s all well and good doing this today but we have to follow it up.

'Fenners (Nick Fenton) was quality at the back and Coidy (Danny Coid) and we all sort of blocked and we got our clearances in but that`s what we are, we`re defenders and that`s what we`ve got to do.`

Johnny was asked which of the two positions, centre-back or right-back, that he`s played while at Rotherham he preferred and he said, 'That`s the problem, I don`t know. I like both positions but with Coidy coming in now and Cresswell coming back then there will be real competition for places so I`ve got to be on top of my game and do what I can do in either position. I`ve got to give the gaffer a headache because it will be difficult keeping either Fenners or Cress out.

'We`ve got fourteen games to go and this is the business end of the season. We know what our goal is and the more good players we`ve got in competition for places is imperative to our run in. If we win most of those games then we know where we will be and it`s up to the players in the squad and the gaffer to make sure we do that.`
