RUFC - Joseph on his goal!

Rotherham United defender, Mark Joseph, scored his first goal for the Millers against Notts County at Meadow Lane last week from twenty-five yards out and says it's got to be one of his best goals. Mind you, he has only scored four in his career!

Speaking to The Advertiser about the goal he said, 'it took a little deflection on the way in but I think it was going in anyway. It was going in the top corner but ended up going in the bottom corner. It went passed the 'keeper before he even noticed it!'

Sitting just to the right of the post it 'sneaked in' at, I have to say, when the ball did cross the line everyone around just looked at one another and there seemed to be a split second of silence before the away fans let out a roar!

Carrying on, Joseph, who has been dogged this season with a kidney infection that he ended up in hospital with, said, 'I don't score many goals in training because the gaffer keeps the defenders away from any sort of shooting practice because we keep losing the balls! We get involved in crossing practice and things like that but not shooting.

'As defenders we work hard for each other and we know each others game now and we are proud to have kept four clean sheets.'

Manager, Mark Robins said, Marc had been asking him not to hold him back and that he's techinically brilliant, 'as you can imagine,' his manager said, 'he is the shy, retiring type!

'Seriously, it was a very well struck goal. It was difficult to control the ball and he kept it down and hit it with power. I'll credit him with it, even though I think it was an own goal!'
