RUFC - Green admires Knill
Rotherham United defender, Jamie Green is looking forward to meeting his old boss, Alan Knill at Bury tomorrow.
'I was a second year youth teamer when Knilly was here, and he'd just been promoted to manager' Jamie told Dom Howson of The Star. 'I have a lot of time for Knilly and vice versa. He always had a lot of time for the younger lads and would come and help you out. I have a lot of respect for him and thought he was a really good manager. It will be nice to see him and get one over on him!
'Bury will be going into the match with a lot of confidence because they've gone seven games unbeaten. But they might be over confident and be a bit sloppy so, if we do the right things, we could catch them out.'
The twenty year old was dropped to the bench last week for the game against Notts County, although he came on when Andy Nicholas had to go off with a head injury. And, if Nicholas doesn't make it tomorrow, Green will be ready to go out and fight for his place. 'I don't think I've played anywhere as well as I can this season,' he admits. 'But, I will keep working hard and get back to the way I was playing last season.'
