RUFC - Evans 'I always believe I can score'

RUFC - Evans 'I always believe I can score'

Rotherham United winger/striker, Gareth Evans chipped in with his sixth goal on Saturday at Sixfields and says he is delighted with his contribution since joining the Millers in the summer.

Speaking after the one-all draw with Northampton at the weekend, the twenty-three year old told MillersPlayer, 'With the chances we had in the second half we should have won this game.

'With going in front so early in the game it looked like we might be able to go on and make something of the game but we conceded a bit of an unfortunate goal towards the end of the first half. But the second half ended up being quite an open game but maybe we should have won it.

'I thought we were very good defensively and Conrad (Logan) made a very good save in the second half and I thought we were tight at the back so I suppose a point was a fair result.

'It`s always difficult when you go a goal down early on, as we know, but it was a boost for us getting an early goal and it was something to build on.`

Asked about his goal tally so far this season, the former Macclesfield and Bradford City player said, 'I`m delighted to have scored six goals so far. I`ve always had the belief that I`m capable of scoring goals given the chances and playing with the strength we`ve got in the team it was always possible that I`d score goals. Once again, Revs (Alex Revell) made it with a beautiful header and I was just able to finish it which just seems to be happening for me at the moment.`

Speaking about his partners up-front, Gareth said, 'Grabs (Lewis Grabban) has great pace and Revs is a very good target man and is very good with the ball on the floor and I think we all just complement each others strengths. In the shooting practices in training there are very few misses so we are always confident of scoring goals.

'I`ve always been a striker but I came here and the gaffer has put me on the left hand side of the front free and I find I`m enjoying it because I`ve been able to use my pace to get down but I`ve also been able to come in and shoot which is how I`ve got the majority of my goals. As a striker you`re always relying on service whereas where I`ve been playing you get a lot more of the ball which I`m more than happy to do. I suppose you could say I`ve found my position really.

Asked about coming to a club that already had a prolific goals scorer playing for them in Adam Le Fondre, Gareth admitted, 'It`s not easy when you`ve got someone like Alfie who scored so many goals in the time he was here but you just have to put that to the back of your mind when you walk onto the pitch and try and score. And it`s not really about who was here before and how many goals he scored, it`s more about us being here now and how many goals we can score.`
