Leeds United 2

Jonson Clarke-Harris speaks on his match-winning goal for Rotherham United against Leeds United in the Championship on Friday.

Rotherham United striker Jonson Clarke-Harris has been reflecting on his goal against Leeds United in the Yorkshire derby on Friday.

The 20-year-old came on as a substitute in the 63rd minute of the Championship encounter at the New York Stadium and scored just two minutes later.

Clarke-Harris collected the ball in midfield, drove forward and slammed it home from 30 yards to make it 2-1 in favour of the hosts.

The match eventually ended in a 2-1 victory for the Millers, and Clarke-Harris has now said that he and his teammates are looking forward to building on that win.

‘It was a decent shot to be honest but I'll take any goal if I get the chances’, Vital Football quotes the former Oldham Athletic striker as telling Radio Sheffield after the game on Friday. 'As soon as I got the ball I knew what I was going to do but that's part of my game.

'I've been told for years to just keep shooting and they'll go in. And it went in and I'm buzzing. It's three vital points for us tonight and now we've got to take that into Tuesday and beat Fulham.'

Rotherham are currently 15th in the Championship table with 15 points from 12 matches and next face Fulham at home on Tuesday.
