Scott delighted at goal return

Have your say

ROTHERHAM United manager Andy Scott says he is delighted that his strikers are getting among the goals and that they are backing up his belief in their abilities.

Lewis Grabban has six already, Gareth Evans has four and Chris Holroyd is sticking up his hand in the reserves with half-a-dozen goals already including four in midweek.

“I knew Lewis could score goals and felt that I could get more out of Gareth Evans because he had a decent scoring record when he was at Macclesfield,” said Scott.

“Chris Holroyd has the potential and is a goalscorer and he is waiting for his opportunity and showing what he can do.

“I’ve spoke to Chris because, with Alex Revell coming in, he obviously felt his chances may be limited.

“Perhaps there’s been a bit of confusion for Chris at previous clubs but he has quick, clean feet when the ball is in the box and he gets into good scoring positions.

“He has to get into them more often and do what he’s good at. He’s got goals in the reseves by doing what he’s been asked to do and he’s certainly pushing Lewis.

“Alex came in to give us something a bit different and he will be a help to whoever plays alongside him.”
