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

RUFC - Tavs Pleased With His 'Wonder' Goals

Rotherham United defender James Tavernier scored two fantastic goals on Saturday against Bristol City to help the Millers get their third win in eight days.

Speaking after the game the loanee from Newcastle told Rob Staton of Radio Sheffield that the first goal was probably his favourite ever goal, 'As soon as the first one came to my feet I knew just to strike it and it was on target and was a good goal and it got us in the lead.

'Then it got to one-one and when the free-kick came on the edge of the box there was only one person going to take it and it went in so I'm really happy.

'I knew the second one was going to go in but the first one went through a few bodies so I didn't know if it was going to take a deflection. But as soon as it went past a couple of players I knew it was in.

'It was a great team performance and as soon as we get a lead we are a really hard team to break down.'

Asked about his celebration after scoring, Bradford born James said, 'Firstly my Mrs told me to go out and score two goals and I did that! And Haris and I have been playing FIFA and that's my celebration on there. He did it when he scored against Brentford so I had to go down to the touchline and do a celebration.'

Tavs has been on loan with the Millers since November and has made twenty-three appearances scoring his fourth and fifth goals on Saturday. 'This is the best loan I've been on,' the twenty-two year old said. 'I've played a lot more games here than the rest and they are a great group of lads who the Manager has put a lot of faith in. I'm really happy to be here and it's been a great experience for me.'

Speaking about the play-offs, James said, 'We've got to win every game we can and hopefully the teams above us will lose and draw games. But we've just got to concentrate on our performances.'
