Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore says that he is pleased that all his squad are fighting for a position in the team for tomorrows game at Don Valley against Chesterfield.
Speaking to MillersPlayer, Moore said, 'It`s a nice position to be in.
'(Mark) Bradley`s come back and (Tom) Pope came on on Saturday and probably changed the game. So, do I stick with the eleven who started at Barnet or do I change it because the two lads have come on for half an hour and won us the game.
'I`ve told them if they get left out of the side not to come knocking on my door and asking why I`ve left them out. I`ve told them they have to go out and perform and we didn`t perform for an hour on Saturday. So, I might play one of those two lads who came on but it`s something for me to think about.`
Talking about Welsh International, Mark Bradley, Moore said, 'He couldn`t start the season because he had a back spasm and I couldn`t risk him and then he got called up for Wales twice. But he`s now fit and raring to go and he can either go box-to-box or he can sit. He had a hand in two of the goals on Saturday when he came on and I`m pleased with that and it makes the other midfield players sit up a little bit now because it`s been easy for them really.
'Pope`s scored five in four so he`s putting a bit of pressure on the lads up front as well. I think he`s got the bit between his teeth this season and he knows what I`m looking for from a striker. I think, last season, Popey was glad that Alfie scored and wasn`t really bothered if he didn`t and, as a striker, you want locking up if that`s your attitude. If I`d played with Alfie and he scored and I didn`t then I`d be going home ranting and raving about it because it would really hurt me, but he seemed happy to play second fiddle. But, he`s six foot three and he should be knocking people about and getting goals which he`s starting to do and hopefully can continue to do.`
Asked about the Millers` other striker, Ryan Taylor, who played half-an-hour of the reserve game in mid-week, Moore said, 'I think Saturday will be probably just a bit too early for Ryan. He did alright in the Reserve game at Nottingham Forest on Wednesday although he found it a little bit hard for the first fifteen minutes but then he got his touch going. We`ll probably try and arrange a reserve game next week to give him ninety minutes in and see how things go.`
