RUFC - Griffiths 'I like to contribute'

Rotherham United's latest signing, Scott Griffiths was one of the players to come out with a bit of credit after the loss to Port Vale on Saturday at Don Valley.
Defender Scott has recently joined the Millers until the end of the season from Peterborough and, speaking to MillersPlayer after Saturday's game said, 'The conditions made it a more difficult game than it actually was but I don't think we played as well as we could have done considering the way we've trained this week.

'All week it's been fairly calm but today we were hit with those sort of wins and it was difficult to place the ball where we wanted it. Even to run against it is tough but both teams had the same thing to deal with. We wasn't as good as we should have been and we need to make up for that.

'I thought we were unlucky not to get all three points with the misses in the first half and we did well to keep a clean sheet up to half-time. I thought, from where I stood, the penalty looked very theatrical. I don't know whether he was caught or not but he looked like he made the most of it. Then the pressure built and we didn't stay as composed as we should have done and we didn't take the chances we had.

'I'm surprised we aren't higher in the league, given the ability in the squad, but I suppose it comes down to little things like giving away penalties and not taking chances. But the little things add up.

Asked if he was happy with his own performance, the twenty-six year old said, 'It's been four or so weeks since I've played but no, I wasn't that happy. I know my final balls are better than that and I'm disappointed with some of the quality I put out there. It was my first opportunity to play with the boys and I feel like I've got a lot more to offer.

'To be totally honest, I prefer going forward more than defending but I have to defend first and foremost and if I can get forward and get crosses in then I like to do my bit. I'm an attacking minded player and I like to contribute.'
