Rotherham United's double goal scorer on Saturday, Lewis Grabban said there was relief in the squad after getting through the first round of the FA Cup by beating Barrow two-one.

Lewis, who scored both goals in the win, told MillersPlayer that they team were happy to progress to the next round.

'It's not the easiest place to come and get a result,' the twenty-three year old said, 'so everyone is really happy.

'At half-time the manager said, don't give up and said we'd got to work hard. We did that in the second half and we kept going to the end. It would have been easy to get lost in the occasion and not to have turned up because the standard isn't as high as we are used to and the pitch is harder to play on but we got on with it and got a result.'

Speaking about his goals, the first of which the Barrow fans and players were complaining that he and/or Guy Branston was off-side, Lewis said, 'They were trying to say that Guy was offside and affecting the play but the lino obviously didn't think so and I was able to run through and put it away.

'We've got a lot of league games so we didn't want a replay and it was important to get through in one go.'

Lewis has got eleven goals this season for the Millers and he said that he was happy with how things were going. 'If we work hard the rewards come through team-wise and individually but at the moment it's just about getting points on the board for the team.'
