Rotherham United striker, Drewe Broughton, scored his fifth Millers goal of the season at Accrington on Saturday and, although he was happy enough to do that, he has said he won’t be really happy at Rotherham until his name is one of the first eleven written down before every game.

‘I’m disappointed that I’ve only started two of the last seven league games,’ he told The Advertiser. ‘I think my performances have been good but it’s the manager’s job to make those calls and I will have keep working hard to try and convince him. I’m never happy coming off the subs bench and I’ve been like a bear with a sore head in the last five or six weeks because I’ve been in and out of the side.’

Speaking about the win over Accrington, Broughton said, ‘We needed that win but at two-one up you still weren’t sure which way the game would go. Both teams looked like they could score on the break so getting the third goal was important.’


Carrying on, the thirty-year old said, ‘It was no fluke how we turned round that minus seventeen, it was through the quality we’ve got in the squad. And that hasn’t gone. Everyone has a blip and we haven’t had a consistent line-up for the six weeks or so that we’ve been on our bad run. It’s still a long season and the second half is always the toughest. There’s loads of games in the next five or six weeks and it will be a big test for us.’
