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

RUFC - Grabban 'rest might work in our favour'

Rotherham United`s top scorer, Lewis Grabban says that the enforced break from playing this weekend may well be in the Millers favour.

The Millers should have been making the long trip to face Gillingham tomorrow, but due to the Gills involvement in the FA Cup the game has been postponed and therefore Rotherham have no game.

Speaking to David Beddows of The Advertiser, Lewis said, 'It`s been a busy Christmas period but we can get a little rest this weekend and go on from there.`

The Millers next two games are at Don Valley against Swindon Town and Port Vale, both of who beat the Millers at their home grounds and Lewis carried on, 'These are big games and it`s important that Swindon and Port Vale don`t do the double over us and we need to track back the points we lost against them.

'We did well at Swindon but, due to a few mistakes towards the end of the game, we ended up losing. I think it`s the more clinical things we need to get right against the higher teams but I still think we can beat them.`

Speaking about the two goals that took his tally to fifteen against Bradford, the former Millwall and Brentford striker said, 'The first one was a bit of a poacher`s goal on the half-turn where I just reached to a dropping ball in the six yard box. Then I tucked the penalty away which I was pleased with.

Against Macclesfield and Cheltenham, the soon to be twenty-four year old, played in his favoured spot, down the middle but, due to injuries he was back on the wing on Monday at Don Valley against Bradford.

'It gave me a bit more licence to wander about between midfield and defence and get on the ball.` Lewis said, 'I wasn`t too unhappy with it and it worked out well. But wherever I play, as a striker, I need to keep getting goals.`
