22 year old Adam Le Fondre is looking to Mark Robins to improve his game further he tells todays 'Tiser.

"I had a great time at Rochdale and it was sad for me to leave but I felt this opportunity I couldn't turn it down, With everything Rotherham said to me, I felt it in my heart that I had to move. I can play against the defences in this division and I think I'll be fine here."

"I'm going to move over Sheffield way with my girlfriend but we've got a little one on the way so we're not going to rush into anything we're going to try and find the right place for us as soon as possible."

"I think everyone wants to better themselves. I've made the best of myself as a player and hopefully with the coaching and the players we've got here we'll get to League One next season. When I first broke through for Stockport at 18, I was playing in League One and I still managed to score, so I'm confident in my ability to play at that level."

When asked why he moved from Rochdale Alf said; "The ambition shown by the club, Obviously, with a manager like Mark Robins it's only going to help my game, him being a similar player to myself. I think I can benefit a lot from his coaching. Hopefully he will pass on some tips on how to beat the bully boys at the back. I can learn from him and maybe even take his record from him as leading scorer."

"I've got pace to get in behind defences, I've got a good touch, I can drop back and link up play and I'm not shy with my workrate, And, of course, I bring goals. I am mainly a penalty-box poacher but I score lots of goals."

"I can't wait for the weekend to come so I can maybe get a game against Bournemouth, I think my record shows that I'm a competent League Two goalscorer—I've just got to show it here."

"I think every footballer dreams of getting success. You shouldn't be in football if you don't want to play against big teams, I want to play against bigger teams and get Rotherham up the league."

Meanwhile, boss Mark Robins was pleased to have finally got his man; "He's a natural goal scorer and that's something we've not had at this club for a long time," he said.

"He's a box player and he can link play and do other things as well. He'll work for the team and he can sniff a chance out. He's got great feet and he can stick 'em in with his head as well, as we saw last season."

"Adam is brave. He'll put his head in. He wants to progress his game and believes he can can do that here." he added.
