BIG targetman Kayode Odejayi insists he remains unfazed by his current goal drought.

More than 720 minutes of football have elapsed since the Rotherham United player last found the back of the net in the entertaining draw with local rivals Chesterfield in mid-August.

Strikers are judged on goals and Nigerian-born Odejayi, who has never been prolific throughout his career, has scored just twice in 12 appearances.

But the ex-Barnsley marksman, who was taken off after 57 minutes of the defeat to Southend United, is happy with the contribution he has made to the Millers’ cause. He believes it is a matter of time before the goals start to flow.

He told The Star: “As a striker, when you are not scoring, you’ve got to look at what else you are bringing to the table. I think in the majority of my games I have done everything but score. I have created opportunities for my teammates and played well. As long as I am still doing that and getting in the right positions, I’m sure the goals will come.

“I think maybe there have been one or two games where I haven’t done so good, but I can’t play well every single game. Two dodgy games out of 10 isn’t bad. I haven’t scored recently but I think I have been doing my bit.”

Since becoming the Millers boss more than six months

ago, Steve Evans has yet to oversee an away victory. They have drawn their last two on the road, recording clean sheets at Barnet and York City.

Evans’ men head to Aldershot on Saturday and Odejayi is convinced they are close to breaking their duck.

“Our away form is nothing to worry about,” he said. “There are things we are trying to improve and we are looking at certain things in training. We haven’t lost in the last few away games so that’s always a positive. We will get there in the end.

“If we maintain the form we have shown at home and pick up a few more points on our travels, we will be all right.”
