"I've not figured that often this season, but I'm determined to keep my place," said the 28-year-old.
"I've got to respect the gaffer's decision when he picks a team, but I've been given my chance in the last couple of games and enjoyed it.
"It's been really frustrating, no footballer likes to be sat on the sidelines or in the stand watching the match, you'd rather be playing.
"But that's part and parcel of football these days, it's all about having a squad system.
"It's good to have healthy competition for places, you've just got to be patient and take your chance when it comes along. I just want to play as many games as I can for Rotherham.
"It was good to get some games under my belt at York, they're a decent club, but I've been given the chance by the gaffer - and I want to do the best I can."
