RUFC - Kennedy - Millers can go up automatic
Rotherham United loanee, Callum Kennedy spoke about the late winner for Bradford City against the Millers at Valley Parade last night.
Speaking to MillersPlayer the twenty-one year old, who is on loan from Swindon Town said, 'Obviously from being at left-back I saw him have the shot and then I went up for the follow up header and, to me, it didn`t appear to have gone over the line. My immediate reaction, when the flag went up, was offside and it appeared most of the players didn`t think it was a goal because everyone just carried on. But, the referee has given it and it`s something we`ve got to deal with and crack on.`
Asked about the free kick that he took in the second half that was pushed onto the crossbar by the Bantams 'keeper, Callum said, ' I don`t mind taking free kicks and it was nice to step up and take it. And, although I didn`t get a corner for it, I thought the goalie had made a good save.
'I think we gave our all tonight and it was disappointing that we didn`t come away with anything.'
Callum`s first game for the Millers was at Oxford when he was red carded for a tug in the box and he said, 'Obviously, you want to come on loan to play games and sitting on the sidelines was something I`d been doing with Swindon. But, it was my own doing and luckily I`ve been given the chance to get back into the team and I want to keep my place.
'I`ve played a few games in this league and I don`t think I`ve seen a better team than Rotherham have got and I definitely think they could get automatic promotion.`
Asked if he`d consider staying longer with the Millers, Callum said, 'I just want to be playing games so if there are games on the table here then I`d love to stay. I like all the lads and I think play class football. Swindon have got a new manager and I need to speak to him about what his plans are but I`d love to stay here.'
