RUFC - Hudson silences the boo boys

Rotherham United midfielder, Mark Hudson, scored the second goal on Wednesday night to help sink his former team and silence the Chesterfield fans who had continuously booed him during the game.

Hudson was captain for the Spireites four years ago and told The Advertiser that he was offered a two-year extension to his contract 'but I said I would wait until the end of the year and keep my options open,' he said. 'The manager, Roy McFarland, came out and said he wanted me to move to a bigger club but the supporters thought it was me who'd said I wanted to move and it wasn't.

'I knew I'd get booed and of course you can hear it but I just laugh it off. It actually spurs me on to show them what I can do. It's always sweet to score against a former club.

'A lot of teams at the top won on Tuesday night and if Chesterfield had beaten us they would have been level on points with us and have a game in hand so we knew we had to keep the run going.

'We were solid and never looked like we were going to concede and we passed the ball well and looked good going forward.'

Speaking about the team he said, 'We are looking strong and everyone knows their job. The gaffer is getting it right. But, it's not good winning at Chesterfield and then losing at home to Rochdale. We are strong at Millmoor and we have to push that advantage home now.'

Since coming back from injury, Hudson has played in seven games and, as he keeps telling his team mates, the Millers haven't lost in those seven games. Let's hope he makes it eight tomorrow.
