RUFC - Moore frustrated over back four

RUFC - Moore frustrated over back four

Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore spoke before today`s game with Northampton about the injury problems his team has at the moment.

Speaking to Radio Sheffield, Moore said, 'It`s probably the same as Saturday to be honest. Cress (Ryan Cresswell) is improving but he`s not going to be fit enough to take part.

'Nick Fenton took a knock but he`ll be OK. The problem we`ve got is Tom Newey, he got his fifth yellow card so he`s going to be missing. We just can`t seem to get the back four to be a back four for two or three games together. But, Jamie Green will come in and play at left-back which will give him an opportunity.

'The back four were all brand new at the start of the season and we`ve never really had them playing at the same time. Johnny Mullins has been injured and Cress has been out, Fenton`s been out, Newey`s been out and it`s frustrating because I know, for a fact, that we`re a better back four than we were last year and it`s just a matter of getting them to gel together and proving it.

'The problem we have is with Cress`s back, do we go and get a centre-half in, Fenton`s calf could go and if that happens then it could be three or four weeks and if we go past the deadline on Thursday and don`t bring anybody in, then we`re going to leave ourselves short. So we are still trying to bring a centre-half in, though we`ve not got one in for the game against Northampton. But John Mullins was excellent on Saturday there and he`s played there before so it`s not like we`ve thrown him in there, we know he can play centre-half.

'Two very experienced players turned us down because they didn`t want to come down to the second division, which doesn`t make sense to me. There`s a couple of younger kids, one at West Ham and one at Tottenham, but, at this present time they don`t seem to want to come much further than Watford Gap, so really, it`s the Northern boys like the Man United or Blackburn type where we`ve got to knock on doors. We`ve had a chat to one or two at Blackpool and we`re just waiting for them to get back to us and give us a yea or a nay.`
