ROTHERHAM United’s on-loan striker, Brett Williams, is slowly working up towards showing why Andy Scott brought him north from Reading in the first place.

Williams arrived shortly after Adam Le Fondre joined the Berkshire club in September but, after a brief appearance as a sub at Swindon, went back to Reading for treatment to a thigh injury.

“He was probably struggling with it a bit when he came and so he had to get it cleared up,” said Scott.

“Now, he’s looking a different character altogether to when he first came and he is showing in training what he can bring to us.

“He’s good in the air, strong and quick and he scores goals because he’s someone with the knack of getting between the posts.

“The fitter he gets, the better he’ll get. He’s not quite there yet - probably 85 per cent there at the moment and he could probably do a good hour, 70 minutes - but he’ll be pushing hard very soon.”

Williams went on for the final half-hour of the FA Cup-tie at Barrow. He then did 90 minutes for the reserves on Monday and is set to have another 90 minutes for them next Monday.

Rotherham head for Bradford today with goalkeeper Conrad Logan’s place under threat while midfielder Danny Schofield could come back in the frame.
