RUFC - Striker happy with 'scruffy' goal

Rotherham United striker Alex Revell said that he didn't care how scruffy his goal was he was pleased to get it against Torquay on Saturday.

Speaking to MillersPlayer after the game, where his was the only goal, the twenty-nine year old said, 'It's a scruffy goal but I couldn't care less! I'm pleased to have scored and pleased with my all round stuff, although I was a bit tired at the end and tried a left foot shot that was pretty disgusting!

'We had plenty of chances and we made it a bit difficult for ourselves and had to hang on in the end. The only real negative of the game was that we should have scored more goals but it was a good win.'

Speaking about his season so far, Alex said, 'Obviously I haven't played as much as I'd like to have so when you come in you probably try too hard which was probably the case against York City. But today, with the atmosphere in the ground and the way we had to bounce back after last week, it probably made it a bit easier. I took my chance but I've got to do it again on Tuesday because we've got some really good strikers here who all have different asserts. The gaffers brought players in to keep the competition going and I don't think we had that last year. I can only do on the pitch the best I can do and if it's good enough you stay in and if not then you go out and you know you've got people breathing down your neck to get in the team so you have to keep your standards up.'

Asked how it was without Manager Steve Evans on the touchline, Alex smiled and said, 'It was a bit different a bit quieter! We've been working on it for a couple of days and we met up with the gaffer before the game and we all know what he expects of us.'

I actually thought Alex and Kayode Odejayi - or Big K as he's called around New York - worked very well together on Saturday and wouldn't be disappointed to see them play the next few games.
