READ | We can use international break to our advantage – Grigg

8 October 2021

The international break is always a welcome addition to the calendar for football teams up and down the country.

With players jetting off to represent their nations, it gives managers and coaches time to take a break from league action and fine tune some aspects on the training pitch.

For the Millers, though, some may argue that given their fine recent form, including four wins from their last five games in all competitions, that the break may not have been welcomed.

Someone who you may forgive for feeling like that is Sunderland-loanee Will Grigg, who has hit a purple patch infront of goal, with three strikes in three.

However, the 30-year-old believes the break can be used to the side’s advantage, as they look to put the hard yards in at their Roundwood training base.

 

“I’m happy with my form. I came here to score goals and contribute to the team and so far I feel like I have done that, so I’m pleased,” Grigg told www.themillers.co.uk.

“The management team told me that the team would create chances for me to score and they have done that. I’m delighted with how it is going.

“I think of course, with the form we are in as a team and myself personally, you always want the games to be coming thick and fast but we can definitely use the break to our advantage."

Will Grigg speaks to www.themillers.co.uk

“For myself, it gives me the opportunity to fine tune my own fitness, as I’ve come here without a pre-season and been playing catch-up a little on that front.

“We’ll be putting the minutes in on the training pitch and working on a few things and hopefully we can come back and pick up where we left off.”

The Northern Irishman has 13 caps for his country and travelled with The Green and White Army to EURO 2016.

And the striker is hoping that if he continues his rich goalscoring form, that he can force himself into contention for a place in the squad, alongside fellow Miller Shane Ferguson.

“It’s always a huge honour to represent my country and obviously it is something I would still like to do If given the opportunity,” Grigg explained.

“Since the new manager came in I’ve been out of the picture and all I can do is continue to score goals and try and impress.

“Right now, my main focus is on helping Rotherham and if I can play myself in into contention for my country in the process, then great."

“I love Shane (Ferguson), what a player he is by the way! I was delighted for him to mark his 50th cap with a goal and it is brilliant to have him as a teammate.

“It’s great for all the lads who are away with their countries and I know everyone here is wishing them all the best.”
