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

RUFC - Striker 'we won't understimate Barrow'

Rotherham United striker Chris Holroyd received praise from his manager after his performance on Saturday in the two-nil win over Aldershot at Don Valley, in which Chris scored his first senior goal for the Millers.

Andy Scott said he was delighted with the twenty-five year old and Chris himself told MillersPlayer that he thought the hard weeks training paid off.

'After such a long run without a win it was long overdue and everyone was delighted and it was a happy dressing room. Confidence comes with a victory and I think we will have another good weeks training this week.'

Talking about his goal, the former Brighton forward said, 'It's always good to get a goal. I knew with the quality we've got here that if you keep getting in the right places as a striker you are always going to score and the first goal for your club is a special moment.

'The gaffer and I had a meeting and he told me how he wanted to get more out of me and I've tried to consciously work to do that in training and reserve games and hopefully that's shown.'

Going onto Saturday's FA Cup game where the Millers travel to Holker Street to take on non-league Barrow, Chris said that he'd played there before with Cambridge United. 'It was a Tuesday night and not the nicest of nights,' Chris recalled, 'and it was one of them games where you was happy to come out with a victory and I think it might be the same Saturday. It's a tight ground and it was on those nights when you just wanted to get in, get a victory and get out. They are a good, well organised side and we won't be underestimating them.'

Ed note: Twenty-five years old - I must be getting on a bit because he only looks like a young teenager to me!
