Don't write me off, says keeper

DEFIANT Millers goalkeeper Andy Warrington has vowed to fight for the number one jersey, stating "I'm going to give my best to get back into contention."

The 35-year-old has drifted down the pecking order since manager Andy Scott arrived at the club.

An injury to Warrington towards the end of last season saw Jamie Annerson make a number of impressive performances, and with the arrival of Conrad Logan from Leicester City, the former Doncaster Rovers man is regarded as number three choice between the sticks.

However, an impressive second half against Sheffield Wednesday in midweek has seen his stock rise with Scott, and he could come back into the reckoning.

Warrington said: "It was nice to get the gloves back on and get 45 minutes under my belt. I felt very sharp today and I've felt sharp in training since we started back.

"I'm not the kind of person to give up on the job and I'll give my best to try and get back into the manager's plans."

Warrington, who is starting his fifth season with the Millers, has been an ever present since signing in the summer of 2007.

He was overtaken by Annerson in the pecking order over the summer, but despite this, Warrington says that "all 'keepers have a good working relationship."

I've known Jamie for years and we have a really good working relationship, and it's the same with Conrad," he said.
