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

RUFC - Nicky 'thrilled to be here'

Rotherham United defender Nicky Hunt is hoping to head into the Championship with the Millers with eighteen thousand people watching.

The twenty-nine year old former Bolton Wanderers player joined the Millers in the summer from Preston North End and told David Beddows of The Advertiser, 'I've played for quite a few teams and some big clubs and the training is always different from place to place but the basic principle is the same - if you work hard then your ability will show.`

Nicky found himself at a dead end at Bristol City before moving to Deepdale which he says was a blessing in disguise as it put him in the shop window and Millers Manager Steve Evans went along to watch him.

'If I hadn't played that sixteen or seventeen games for Preston I don`t think I`d have been here,` Nicky said, 'and I`m thrilled to be here. The stadium is fantastic and the training ground will be ready next year. And, hopefully, this team will be in the Championship and getting eighteen thousand in.

'But things take time, they don`t work straight away. There are always players to come in and out and teams to be changed but, as long as we have a basis for everything, we`ll be successful this year.

'Recently we seem to start slowly and it takes something like a goal against us or a tackle before we spring into life. We have to eradicate that and we`ve got to batter the teams who come here and make them nervous.`

I do think Nicky`s right and we have to get off to a good start in a game, especially at home (and I still smile when I say 'home`!) We do seem to have the early chances but whether the strikers feel under pressure to score I don`t know but an early goal tomorrow would surely settle everyone down and then we can get on with the job of playing football.
