Barrow win was a relief - Grabban

Leading marksman Lewis Grabban talks about last weeks win over Barrow in the FA Cup.

Grabban's late brace meant the Millers booked a round two match with Shrewsbury Town and the player said the feeling was relief all round after a tough afternoon against the Blue Square Premier side.

Grabs told the Tiser; “It was a relief to get the win and we’re all generally happy with the result because it’s not an easy place to go to. At the break we were told not to give up and work hard and that’s what we did in the second half. We kept going until the end and we got the result.

 “It’s easy to get lost in an occasion like that and not turn up. The standard isn’t as high as we’re used to and the pitch was harder to play on but we just got on with it and did the job. You have to keep going until the 90th minute and hope something will break.

 “We didn’t want a replay,” he added. “We’ve got some important league games coming up and that’s the most important thing. To get through in one round is always better. We’re unbeaten in five so we’ll just try and carry that on for as long as possible and not get in that routine of losing.

 “We had a bad spell but now we’re on the rise again and climb back up the league. Personally, I’ll carry on working hard and hopefully the rewards will come. At the moment it’s about getting points on the board for the team. I’ll just keep cracking on.”
