Rotherham United’s nineteen year old defender, Stephen Brogan, has told The Advertiser that he would rather have the three points in the bag than get the accolade for his play.

‘If it means winning and me not playing so well then I would take that because it’s all about the team and getting promotion,’ he said.

‘We have only taken one point at home in the last two games and that is not good enough and it puts more pressure on us this weekend at Wrexham. We are as good as anyone in this league but there is no getting away from the fact that we should be collecting three points at home.’

Brought up just a mile up the road from Millmoor, Brogan is desperate to help the good times come back to the club.

‘It’s the first season that I’ve started as a recognised professional and I know I’ve got to deliver. It’s not good turning up and being a bit player, I have to perform.

‘Everyone was gutted in the dressing room after the defeat last week. I thought we were the better team but, although they didn’t create that much, what they did create they finished.

‘The result might concentrate a few minds and we have to carry on now. We should really be looking to win three or four of the next five games.

‘I was on a low all last Saturday night and it isn’t a nice feeling.’
