RUFC - O'Connor nearly didn't start last weekend!

Rotherham United midfielder Michael O`Connor might have been sat on the bench on Saturday instead of opening the scoring because Millers Boss Steve Evans was desperate to put Kari Arnason in midfield.

But, as we all now know, the twenty-four year old did start and what a start it was! Getting the ball in the first minute from Ben Pringle the former Scunthorpe player there was no hesitation from O`Connor to shoot from thirty-five yards out stunning Bradford`s 'keeper, defence and probably half of the Millers fans too!

It was a cracker of the goal with Manager Evans telling The Advertiser, 'the New York Stadium will be here long after we`ve gone but I don`t think it will see many better goals than that strike.`

Speaking about the game tomorrow against Port Vale at Vale Park, O`Connor said, 'I think it`s the biggest pitch in the league and we need to make use of that. We`ve been unlucky away from home we were the better side for seventy minutes at Northampton and the same at Chesterfield. We`ve been playing well and training has been good and if we get a good away result then we`ll get two or three wins on the bounce.`

We have been unlucky and certainly did enough to win at Northampton so it was a bit of a blow to come away with nothing - but we really need to take our chances and start scoring for fun. And doesn`t that seem a funny thing to say after winning four-nil last week! But I do think teams are going to be wary of us and will soon start to 'shut up shop` against us and the chances we are getting now probably will be few and far between from Christmas time so I really do think we need to make them count.
