Adam remaining focused

3 April 2014

Goalkeeper Adam Collin recently spoke to Millers Matchday...

Custodian Adam Collin has admitted he does not take his Millers shirt for granted, despite commanding the no.1 jersey since late October.

Following his summer arrival from Carlisle, Collin looked to be playing second fiddle to Scott Shearer in the early part of Rotherham's League One campaign.

However, Evans gave Collin an opportunity to prove his worth and the likable stopper has taken his chance, being ever-present since making his league debut at home to Tranmere Rovers.

Collin is resting on his laurels though and admitted he is constantly looking over his shoulder and may only be one poor performance from warming the Millers' bench again.  

"I've played a lot of games on the bounce and I want to keep playing until the end of the season," he said.

"However, we have quality all over the squad and we have an experienced 'keeper in Shears behind us, so if I have a bad day at the office, there's a chance I might lose my place, so it keeps me on my toes." 

Collin has impressed the Millers' fans with his calm demeanour between the sticks and the 29-year-old 'keeper has an uncanny knack of pulling off vital save at crucial points of the match. The man from the North East refuses to take all the glory praising the likes of Icelandic international Kari Arnason and club skipper Craig Morgan who have formed a formidable shield in front of him.

“It's good to play behind the likes of Kari and Morgs and we've built up a good relationship at the moment," he added.

"The quality is there for all to see and we have the likes of Claude (Davis) and Miles (Addison) waiting to get their chance also while the full-backs are playing very well at the minute."
