Rotherham United winger/striker, Gareth Evans said that you can't do much better than to score two goals on your full debut for your club, after the Millers beat Plymouth Argyle, four-one, on Saturday at Home Park.

Speaking to MillersPlayer, the twenty-three year old, who signed for Rotherham this summer, said, 'I'm over the moon and pleased we got three points.

'I'm always confident that I'm going to score goals and so I knew, as soon as the gaffer gave me a chance to start a game, there would be a good chance that I'd score and, luckily, I've managed to repay his faith in me.'

Talking about his goals he said, 'I just remember Jason Taylor passing me the ball along midfield and I just got my head down and ran with it and I managed to hit it as hard as I could with my left foot and it went into the far corner. For the second one I ran into the box and saw Alfie pulling his leg back ready to whip it in and I thought you never know I might be able to get on the end of it, and luckily I did.

'We felt we were on top in the first half of the game and were creating the better chances and it was only a matter of time before we were going to score. Unfortunately, we conceded early doors in the second half but I managed to get one back and then luckily get another and then Alfie has taken over. It was great for us to get such a good result away from home.

'I think Plymouth are a good footballing side and they switched the ball particularly well and I don't think they will be too far off at the end of the season. But it was one of those games where we managed to take our chances and come away with the three points and a good result.'

Asked about his preferred position, Gareth said, 'I'm happy to play on either wing or as centre-forward. I was just happy to get on the pitch and I'll play wherever the gaffer wants me to play.

Talking about the squad at Rotherham, the former Bradford City player said, 'The gaffer has made it clear that, if you aren't starting games, then you've got to keep your head up and maybe you will be in the next game. It's a squad game and it's not the bee all and end all if you aren't in the starting eleven and I think I've shown today that if you aren't in the starting eleven for one game you may go and do something in the next.'

With a word to the fans, Gareth said, 'It's important not to get carried away. I think last season Rotherham were a fantastic side up until Christmas and then they sort of blew up a little bit. It's important just to keep your head down and keep grinding out the results.
