'If It's Football, It's Vital'

RUFC - 'We'll do it for Brogan'

Rotherham United skipper, Graham Coughlan, has been solid in defence this season and a good influence on the rest of the team on, and off, the pitch. After the terrible injury that saw Stephen Brogan sustain a broken leg last Saturday it was left to him to get the players minds back on the game and hold the team together and get something from the game.

He's told The Advertiser that Stephen's injury has only made him more determined not to let standards drop and keep the team in the promotion chase.

Speaking about the nineteen year old he said, 'He's got great talent and is a great character to have around the club. We are all affected by what's happened to him - with the bond we have here when one of us is going through a bad time we are all going through it with him. We'll be thinking of Stephen everytime we step onto the pitch. It will make us more determined to do well and to hand over his promotion medal, which he deserves, in May.

'Stephen has some bad days ahead of him but it will make him stronger and it will be character-building. He'll be watching us from the sidelines and maybe learn a few things about the game. He'll feel down - we all do - but he'll be on with his rehabilitation in no time. Each and every one of us is willing him back and we want to dedicate the point we got at Milton Keynes to him, fight through this tough spell and reward him, the fans and everyone connected with the club with success.

'Time is a great healer and the hope is that Stephen will return stronger from this experience.'

Stephen had a bit of a setback yesterday and was diagnosed with compartment syndrome. But Vital Rotherham learned last night that he had had an operation and all went well - and he was eating anything that was put in front of him!

He's been the backbone of the defence all season. And, imo, is a great captain
