Rotherham United defender, Mark Lynch, says that last Saturday, at Morecambe, was ‘one of my best days in football’ after he bagged two of the three Millers’ goals.

Speaking to The Advertiser, the twenty-six year old said about his goals, ‘They’ve been a long time coming – but it was great to see them go in!’

Lynch, who joined the Millers in the summer, was a trainee at Old Trafford before moving to Sunderland, Hull and Yeovil, but these goals were his first ever league goals and he says he was encouraged, as a lad, to improve his weaker left side. ‘So I worked on it,’ he says, ‘and I’m not bad with my left foot. When players try and hit shots off their best foot but the position calls for a shot with the other foot it can look clumsy. I had a go with my left last week and, as you know, it paid off. I’d like to think I took both goals well.

‘For the first I just cut inside and hit it and the second I cut inside and had a go.’

Speaking about Don Valley, Lynch said, ‘Don Valley isn’t a problem. At the end of the day it has a pitch, posts and lines and that’s all you need. I’ve been impressed with Mark Robins. He has some good ideas and he works well with his staff and players. He’s a good coach and because of what he’s done in the game he commands respect.

‘This year I want to play as many matches as I can but with football you never know what’s round the corner. I’m playing regularly and you can’t ask for anything more.’
