RUFC - Andy 'great to hear them sing my name'

RUFC - Andy 'great to hear them sing my name'

Rotherham United's number one, Andy Warrington, walked out for the warm-up on Tuesday night at Scunthorpe to a chorus of 'Oh, Andy, Andy - Andy, Andy, Andy, Andy Warrington.

It was the Millers' 'keeper's first game since a shoulder injury laid him low in November and he told The Advertiser that to hear the fans singing his name was 'fantastic.'

'Being out really makes you appreciate playing,' the thirty-two year old said. 'And the way the fans welcomed me made me feel part of it again, but, to be fair, I've always felt like that here. We had a terrific following to Scunthorpe and they stayed with us throughout the match.

'It's not just about me though, it's about the team. The lads have been playing fantastically well while I've been out. Stocky (David Stockdale ) came in on loan and he's been magnificent and a real credit to the club.'

Speaking about the game at Scunthorpe, Warrington carried on, 'Scunthorpe looked good and they dominated the game. We knew about the front pairing of Paul Hayes and Gary Hooper who have hit it off really well. It was important that if we were going to get beat that we stayed in the tie. We didn't want two-nil but it's not over yet. The first goal in the second leg at Don Valley will be massive and we need to put on a performance, which we didn't do in the second half on Tuesday.'

Warrington pulled off some great saves on Tuesday night to keep the game at two-nil and Manager, Mark Robins, said 'He's been out for a long time but he's settled back in quickly. His save from Martyn Woolford in the second half was outstanding.'
