RUFC - Frecklington Happy After Scoring Today
Rotherham United loanee Lee Frecklington scored his second and third goals for the Millers today in their three-two win over Stevenage at the New York Stadium.
Speaking to MillersPlayer after the win, the twenty-seven year old, who is on loan from Peterborough said, 'When we went three-nil up I thought we`d be a lot more comfortable but for some reason we switched off and let them back in.`
Speaking about his goals today, the midfielder said, 'In the last couple of years I've not scored as many as I`d like but coming here the Gaffer has given me the opportunity to get forward and playing with people like Revs (Alex Revell) and Kay (Kayode Odejayi) it`s gives you every opportunity to gamble on the knock-downs because they win most things in the air.
'I like playing with Kari Arnason, he`s a very good footballer. With his defensive abilities it`s a good shield for me because he sits in there and gives me a bit of a licence to get forward and we`ve won the four games we`ve played together.
'I thought we were the better side today and can take a lot of credit from the game. We were camped in their half for most of the first half although it was squeaky bum time towards the end where, if I`m being honest, I was expecting the worst. We knew, going into the second half, they`d have more to offer so we had to stay on top of them.
'They are in the play-off places in League One but I think our win was deserved today. In the first half we were very comfortable and I think they struggled to cope with us. We got in their faces and got on top of them early doors and didn't give them chance to play like I know they can do.`
Asked who he`d like in the next round of the Cup Lee admitted that eventually he`d like to get Leeds as he`s a big fan but said as long as it`s a home tie he doesn't really mind.
