Rotherham United Striker Jordan Bowery scored only his fifth goal of the season this afternoon – but it could prove to be a very important one.

Coming off the bench during the second half Jordan`s goal gave the Millers an important point against high flying Norwich City, a point that could help to keep them in the Championship for another season.

Speaking after the one-all draw to Radio Sheffield the twenty-three year old said, ‘We knew it would be a tough game and, overall, I think we should be happy with a point.

‘When I came on the Gaffer said ‘go and get a goal` and that`s what I did. I saw Hammy (Adam Hammill) on the left-hand side and you know he`s going to be doing his tricks so I just steadied myself, waited and when the ball came over thought ‘I’ve got to attack this` and I headed it across goal. He got a hand to it but luckily there was enough on it to go in.’

Asked how tough it is sitting on the bench, Jordan said, ‘Of course it is. As a striker you want to be playing every game and score as many goals as you can. I`m not at my peak yet so I want to push on and learn more. There are two games left and I want to help to keep us in the league so hopefully I can get a start.

‘Tuesday`s our last home game and it will be a full crowd. Reading aren’t playing for that much but they will still come here and try to win because that would be a massive achievement for Rotherham.`
