Rotherham United striker, Brett Williams, said that he had mixed emotions after scoring his first ever professional league goal but ending on the wrong side of a two-one scoreline.

Speaking to MillersPlayer after the defeat on Saturday, the twenty-three year old said, ‘I think we played them off the pitch in the first half but we were a bit sloppy when we came out for the second half and conceded two goals and it was a bad result in the end.

‘I`m not sure that we really picked up from conceding the first goal although we had a few chances in the second half and I think we were a little unlucky.

‘I`m happy with the goal and I could have scored another one as well but I`m gutted about the result.`

Speaking about partnering Alex Revell up front, Brett said, ‘He`s good to play with. He always works hard and wins that first flick on. He`s a good player who I enjoy playing alongside. ‘

Brett is on loan to the Millers from Reading but has been struggling with an injury which has kept him out of football for a while.

‘I think every player needs a run of games to get their form up. Bradford was my first game coming back to fitness from the injury and I`ve had a good run out today and hopefully I can carry it on, get my match fitness up and get more goals.

‘When I first came here my target was to get double figures but the injury was a bit of a knock-back so anywhere around six, seven or eight goals will be good but it`s really about putting in a shift and the team performance.

‘I think we are a team who should be pushing for promotion. Today we were the dominant team but it was just one of those games where we were a bit unlucky. But that`s what Crawley do, they dig out results and they`ve done that today.`

Asked if he will be able to play next weekend in the FA Cup game at Shrewsbury, Brett said, ‘I`ve got permission to play. I made a sub appearance against Barrow so hopefully I`ll get another start and we`ll get to round three. Shrewsbury will be a tough place to go to but our performances of late mean I think we will have a good chance.`
