WELSH international Mark Bradley has promised to prove his worth to manager Andy Scott and force his way off the transfer list at Rotherham United.

The 23-year-old was recalled to the starting line-up at Swindon Town after an impressive cameo as a substitute in the victory over Gillingham.

At the end of last season, Scott told the midfield ace he was surplus to requirements and could look for another club.

But, having caught Scott’s eye in pre-season with his work rate and application in training, Bradley has been given a second chance to shine at the Don Valley Stadium.

Bradley, who has started two out of the last three outings, has told The Star: “I hope I still have got a big part to play. I try to come into training every day and do the best that I can.

“I think I showed what I could do over pre-season. I worked hard and I think the gaffer has been happy with me. I have a good relationship with him.

“I don’t like being on the transfer list but if you are on it you have just got to prove a point. All I want to do is keep trying to do my best for Rotherham.

“I’ve got to keep being consistent to stay in the team.”

Bradley’s contract runs out at the end of the 2011/12 campaign.

He added: “I’m not sure where I stand to be honest in terms of the future and I have not asked the gaffer.

“I have not got frustrated with the situation. All I have wanted to do is prove him wrong and show him that I deserve to play. I’m happy as long as I’m playing. I think the Gillingham game was one of my best games. That is the standard I have set myself.

“But I know I need to try and be more consistent.”
