Cummins buzzing

Last updated : 19 December 2008 By Bigrich.....
Micky Cummins scored the final penalty to send the Millers into the Northern final and a 2 legged affair with Scunthorpe for the right to play at Wembley.

"I was delighted to score the winner against my old club and I felt we deserved it. At the final whistle, the gaffer asked who fancied taking a penalty and I volunteered." Micky told the 'Tiser.

"I knew I was taking the fourth one and when they missed their first two I realised mine might be the decider. That put the pressure on but I didn't disappoint. It's funny, because in the play-off semi against Rochdale last year I was supposed to take one in the penalty shoot-out but came off injured and the lad who took mine missed. He was playing on Tuesday and I asked him if he was taking one and he said no, which was a bit weak, but I'm delighted I slotted mine. We've a chance of going to Wembley now."

"Looking back to the first half, we weren't at our best. The rot has set in a bit lately and it showed a bit in that first half with the sloppy passes we were making. The boss gave us a kick up the backside at half time and we came out and performed. We were on the front foot and had no fear and just got at them."

"I thought we could have nicked it in normal time. Huddy (Mark Hudson) should have scored late on but made up for it with his penalty."

"The cups are important in bringing in revenue and breeding confidence in the lads, We're coming into a period of hard games and we need to climb the table. We had the Aldershot match called off last week and now we need to get back at it and gain points on the teams around us."

"It won't be easy at Accrington. It's a typical non-league set-up and a tricky place but if we carry on like we finished on Tuesday we have every chance of getting a result." he added.
