RUFC - Pope will do Alfie's spade work

Rotherham United striker, Tom Pope says that he doesn`t mind doing the spade work for fellow striker Adam Le Fondre

The former Crewe player has been out since March with a broken foot and Saturday was his first full ninety minutes of first team football since then. Speaking to the Official Site the twenty-five year old said, 'People have perhaps slated me for not scoring enough goals but, at the end of the day if one of you is scoring thirty odd goals and the other five goals, like a did last season, then we are still getting thirty-six/thirty-seven goals between us. If we were both scoring eighteen people would say what a great partnership but because he`s scoring thirty odd and I`m not getting many, people criticise.

'Alfie and I like playing together and I don`t mind doing his spade work as long as we are getting three points and, more importantly, finish in the top three.`

Talking about 'keeper, Andy Warrington, who made some brilliant saves on Saturday to keep the Millers in the game, Tom said, 'Andy is different class and some of the saves he made on Saturday he had no right to save. He`s thirty now, though he looks ten years older (!), and he`s diving around like a teenager.

'I think we`ve got one of the best teams in the league and, if not the best, then definitely a top three side and once everyone is back from injury there will be competition for places and players will be looking over their shoulders, which can only improve the performance of the team as a whole.`
