RUFC - Team news and Injury news

Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore, says he is eighty per cent certain that Captain, Ian Sharps will start the game against Luton Town tomorrow.

Speaking to MillersWorld, Moore said, 'Sharpsy's had a knock and is feeling his knee but I'm sure he'll be OK.

'Dale Tonge is going to be out for three weeks and Paul Warne for four. Andy Liddell has had scar tissue removed from his achilles and he's come through the operation really well, but it will be six weeks before he can come back.'

Mark Lynch came in for Tonge in the last two games and Moore thought he did OK, but only OK. 'We've spoke to him,' Moore said. 'To be fair there's a little bit of pressure on the full-back position and when somebody's injured you've got to take the opportunity and I'm sure Lynchy will do that. He's confident on the ball, has tremendous pace and likes to get forward.'

Speaking about the two loan signings brought in, Moore said, 'I think both Gary Roberts and Adam Rundle did well on Tuesday although it was obvious that they tired. Roberts hasn't played a lot of first team football but he is a player who can get stuck in and I think that's what we've been lacking. Adam is a natural winger - left footed but playing wide on the right, which he's done for Rochdale and I think we'll see him get some shots on target.'

Speaking about Ryan Taylor, who came on for the last fifteen minutes on Tuesday night, Moore said, 'Ryan Taylor could be anything. His own destiny will be signed by himself because he has so much quality.'

Speaking about the pitch, one half of which cut up badly on Tuesday night, Moore said, 'The new turf hasn't quite settled and the rain the other night didn't help. But we've had a drying wind which will have helped. It'll be the same for both sides so there's no use moaning about it.'
