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

RUFC - Striker delighted with goals

Rotherham United's Shaun Harrad was delighted to have scored again on Saturday, especially as it was a tap-in!

Speaking to MillersPlayer after his goal earned the Millers a point with a one-all draw against his former club Burton Albion, the twenty-seven year old, who is on loan from Bury, said, 'I think I've needed a little tap-in all season so I'm delighted.

'We were disappointed with the first half performance but we've come out for the second half and battled for a point. Maybe we could have got all three but we're happy with that. I was tightly marked today so they must have thought I was quite a threat so to get a goal was even more special.'

Talking about the first half, Shaun said, 'No excuses but the wind played its part in the first half and, at half-time, the gaffer told us where we needed to progress in the second half. He was spot on with what he said and obviously it's worked. And the crowd were absolutely superb and I think they out sung the home fans. That's what the lads need because when we're digging in they are the twelfth man.

Shaun has now scored three goals in three games for the Millers and said, 'Just to get on the score sheet I'm delighted with and let's hope it's four in four after Tuesday and three points.

'We are creating chances but the most important thing is to win games and if we carry on as we are there's no reason why we can't nick that play-off spot. But, the gaffer is keeping us level headed and we're just taking each game as it comes.

'I'm enjoying every moment here. The lads, the manager and the set-up here are superb and I'm already feeling at home here. Come the end of the month we'll have to see what happens but I'm enjoying every moment here. I've got a big smile on my face and I'm enjoying playing my football and hopefully more goals will come.'
