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

RUFC - Fenton 'I believe I got the ball'

Rotherham United defender, Nick Fenton says there was nothing malicious in his tackle on Burton Albions Aaron Webster that saw him get a red card.

The thirty-year old was deemed to have gone in over the top and, because it was his second red of the campaign, was banned for four games. Due to all the postponements it now means that Fenton won't be able to play against his former club Grimsby Town on Saturday.


Speaking to The Advertiser, the former Manchester City player said, 'I don't believe I went in over the top although I did go in ferociously and hard. I didn't mean to injure anyone and I still believe I got the ball.

'It was on the issue of intent that the referee disagreed with me. I understand that it wasn't the greatest of tackles but it wasn't even in a threatening area because their lad was in his own half.

'I've had to take the punishment and I have done but the way the games have fallen with the six called off it's been unfortunate.'

Fenton is eligible to play again at Saltergate against Chesterfield on Tuesday night.

I think Nick Fenton is a very good player and that we've missed him while he's been suspended. But, even as far away as we are at Don Valley, when he went in on the Albion player, there were a few murmers of 'ouch' went round the stands.
