RUFC - Moore on the injury front

RUFC - Moore on the injury front

Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore, says that he has no further injury problems ahead of the game this evening against Torquay at Don Valley.

'Dale Tonge thought he`d done the stress fracture again after getting two kicks in the Darlington game, but he`s been fortunate really that it`s just bruised and we hope he can start training early next week.

'Warney`s (Paul Warne) stress fracture is just taking forever and it hasn`t healed quite as quickly as we thought.`

Moore also spoke to MillersPlayer about some of the other players. 'Full-back positions have been a problem for us but I think Mark Lynch has done all right. He came in, lacked a bit of confidence, came out but now he`s taken the opportunity and he looks settled in there. He`s very attacking minded which is good when we`re at home and Gunning is an attacking left back so hopefully we can see a lot more crosses in and get some headed goals from Popey (Tom Pope).

'Drewe Broughton has gone to Lincoln. He had a terrific game for us against Bradford and led the line as well as anyone has for a long time. Then he had a little dip in form and the opportunity came for him to have seven games in a month. Hopefully he will come back to us nice and sharp after the month and pushing to get in the first team.

'Every time Drewe played we had a tendency to go route one all the time, which wasn`t Drewe`s fault it was the players` fault. Yes, Drewe is a good target guy but target guys also want crosses in from wide positions. So, I`m looking, really, to bring somebody in who is a bit different to Drewe. We thought we had him when Drewe went. It looked like everything was nailed on but unfortunately it backfired on us so we`ve got to have another look. There are strikers out there but of course, they are probably strikers that clubs don`t want to let out. We will probably be looking for someone who is a striker but playing in the right wing role that doesn`t suit them or a young kid who is full of enthusiasm but, somebody will be coming in.`
