RUFC - Moore on Pope

Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore made a couple of changes for the game against Grimsby yesterday, one being bringing striker Tom Pope back for a start.

Pope, who joined the Millers from Crewe last summer, began well for the Millers at the start of the season but, after getting an ankle injury and being out for some weeks in September, never really got going again and was pushed down the pecking order in the squad.

But, the twenty-four year old got a chance yesterday and, in my eyes, he did very well alongside top scorer, Adam 'Alfie' Le Fondre. When he was subbed in the final couple of minutes, he got a standing ovation from the Millers fans.

Speaking to MillersPlayer after the game, that he watched from the Directors Box yesterday, the Millers Manager said about Pope, 'He's run his socks off and I was praying along with everyone else that he'd score with the chance he got. What he probably wants is a goal that goes in off someone's backside and then he'll be up and running.

'In the first half I thought he led the line well and him and Alfie had a nice understanding.

'If he plays the way he did today then he'll get a run in the first team. If he doesn't then he won't. It's up to him. We've got competition for strikers and if I have the opportunity to bring another one in then I will just so we have different options. We don't want to go down the road where we are a team where only one player can score and if he doesn't then we don't win.'
