Marshall still aiming high..

Speaking honestly in todays 'Tiser, on loan striker Marcus Marshall speaks about his time at Blackburn and his ambitions.

"Sometimes you've got to come down to get back up, I still want to cut it in the Premier League. The facilities and the coaching at Blackburn are all great. It's a good schooling there." Marcus said.



"Last season I scored ten goals in 14 games for the reserves. This season we haven't played many games and I've got one in four. I've worked under Mark Hughes, Paul Ince and Sam Allardyce but I liked Ince the best. He was more involved with the younger lot. I didn't work with Hughes long, so I can't really judge him, but Sam is strict. He wants to win."

"I've played alongside Michael Johnson, Titus Bramble, Darius Vassell, Craig Bellamy and Robbie Fowler. Jason Roberts has been a big role model for me. He's always talking to me and suggesting ways I can get better, not to be afraid to miss. If you don't shoot then you don't score."

Despite being with Blackburn for 2 and half year, Marshall has found first team opportunities lacking and spoke about his loan move to the Millers; "I came training here last week for two days to see how I found it and how they found me. Then the gaffer took me in the office and asked me if I wanted to come on loan for a month."

"I didn't really know much about Rotherham so I went on the internet and checked out all their players. I know Le Fondre has been scoring goals."

"Obviously, I want as much first team action as I can and try to show what I can do. I'm pacy and tricky and I like to run at players and get by them and score. I want to get crosses in and produce an end product. I'm stronger on my right foot but I'll use both."

Asked if he would stay at the club should the initial months loan go well, Marcus said; "I'm openminded. If I'm enjoying it and starting and playing well then of course I'd consider staying."
