RUFC - Harrad here to get games

RUFC - Harrad here to get games

Rotherham United`s latest loanee, striker, Shaun Harrad says he is really excited to be here with the Millers.
 
The twenty-seven year old made an impact on Friday night when scored the first goal in the two-nil win over Southend.  He is here on an emergency month`s loan, as Gareth Evans recovers from an injury, from Bury.
 
Speaking to Radio Sheffield before Friday`s game, the former Notts County player said, 'I`ve not had much chance this season to play football so this is a great opportunity to come out and express myself and show what I can do.`
 
Shaun made his name as a prolific goal scorer when he was with Burton Albion.  He has since been at Northampton before moving to Bury and carried on, 'I`ve had a bit of an unsettling year to be honest.  I got a move to Bury and they`ve been doing really well so I couldn`t get in the team, which is understandable.  So the gaffer (Richie Barker) said go out, get yourself a few goals and come back stronger and fitter.  He gave me the option of whether I wanted to come and I jumped at the opportunity but I am still a Bury player and, initially, I`m just here for a month and we`ll take it from there.  If it`s a successful month and everybody is happy for me to stay another month then I`m happy to do that
 
'I`d been sitting in the stands for the last two games and I`m not that type of player who sits in the stands and picks up my wages and, once you aren`t playing football I think you are a forgotten man and I need to be at a team where I can get a bit of consistency while getting the goals.  With games comes fitness and that`s one of the main reasons I`ve come here and to, hopefully, push this team up the league.`
 
Asked about Rotherham, Shaun said, 'It`s a good club that`s run well and I`m well aware what the team can do and I`m well aware what`s ahead of me and I`m willing to give one hundred per cent every game.  Over the years they`ve always been around the play-offs and I think they`ve been a bit unlucky with the results and we are looking to put that right.  The lads are hungry and are looking to do well and, from what I`ve seen so far, the gaffer has put in a lot of work and I`m really looking forward to being part of it.`
 
Asked what he would fetch to the club, he said, 'I`m a hard working centre-forward and I like to play off the shoulder of a big man and I look forward to playing with these players.  I think a lot of people are aware of what I can do.  I`ll never forget getting the hat-trick against Rotherham (for Burton), and I`ve still got the match ball, and I want to get out there and prove that I am still the player that people talk about.  There`s goals in this team and if I can add to that then everyone is happy all around and a couple of wins can put us up there.`
 
As the interview was taking place, Jason Taylor (never the shy, retiring type in this situation!) ran past, shouting, 'saviour!`  What do you think?  He certainly put himself about on Friday night - can he be the saviour of Rotherham United`s season?  Come and tell us, here, on Vital Rotherham what you think….
