Is there a way to load xterm up at a specific location on the screen [bottom right]?

I'm setting up a screenshot command with scrot for a hotkey, the window now loads up at a small size but in the middle of the screen which makes the screenshot look ugly :P

This is the command I have.
xterm -geometry 80x5 -e "scrot -cd 5 /home/jim/screenshot.png"

I'm running Ubuntu and Openbox.
