RUFC - Moore 'Popey's got his appetite back'

RUFC - Moore 'Popey's got his appetite back'

Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore says that he wants striker Tom Pope to improve on last season.

Speaking to MillersPlayer, Moore said, 'I knew a lot about Tom Pope when he played in the First Division with Crewe but last season he never looked like he was going to score a goal. I thought he was just happy for Alfie (Adam Le Fondre) to score but if you`re a striker you can`t be like that you`ve got to be hungry and have the desire and think if Alf gets one then I want to get two. But he just seemed to make one or two goals and be happy with it

'Now, this season, he`s come back from injury and he looks like he wants to score and that he`s got his appetite back. Though, at six foot three so he`s got learn to get himself on the back post.

'But, he`s scoring goals in the Reserves so he`s going to put pressure on the two lads up front. At this level it`s very difficult to go with two little lads up front for the majority of the season so you need a big lad up there who is going to knock people about and he`s in the category.`
