RUFC - Holmes settled in

Rotherham United's summer signing, Peter Holmes, says he has settled in at the club and in the town after buying a house here.

Holmes, who was originally at neighbours Sheffield Wednesday, made sixty seven league starts for Luton and had loan spells with Chesterfield and Lincoln before becoming a Miller.

'The worst thing about being a footballer,' he told The Advertiser, 'is that, unless you sign a long contract, you never know where you are going to be from one season to the next. But, it's part and parcel of the job and you have to make the most of it.

'When I played in the Championship, it was more football based whereas League Two is a bit more physical and maybe I need to learn to be a little more physical in my game.

'The Millmoor pitch is beautiful and if you can't pass a ball on that then I don't know where you can pass. Though, I won't mention the pass I put straight out of play last Saturday! I wasn't on my top form last Saturday and me and the lads felt tired.

'We have twelve new lads in the squad and you can't expect everything to go the way you want straight away but I think we have blended pretty quickly. Everyone is going in the same direction and other teams are showing us respect.

'But we really have to start to kill games off when we get the lead - get another goal and look after the ball a bit better. It's something we are going to have to work on.

'It was another point on the board last Saturday but we have to start to be more consistent. We have to start to pick some wins up.'

I would call him a winger more than a midfielder?

A player i'm looking forward to seeing when he's on his top form.

I love his positive attitude. I also reckon he will score straight from a corner this season!!
