RUFC - Fenton 'no need for doom and gloom'

RUFC - Fenton 'no need for doom and gloom'

Rotherham United stand-in skipper, Nick Fenton said he was disappointed after the draw on Tuesday night with Northampton Town.

Speaking to MillersPlayer, the former Notts County and Doncaster Rovers defender, who celebrated his birthday on Tuesday said, 'We didn't start very well but we went two up and got well and truly on top. Then we gave two shocking goals away. We got caught at the front post for the first one and we should always have somebody there, it was criminal really.. That was shocking and then a minute later it was two all which was disappointing. The goals we gave away were so sloppy and we're going to have to sort that out. After that it was a drab game where no one really got going and nothing happened.

'When we went two up I thought we would go from strength to strength and we gave one silly goal away and it changed the game. We started with the tempo alright and so went to a two goal lead but we've got to be able to hold onto that which we didn't do tonight.

'We've got a week and a half before our next game. I've been playing with a calf injury for the last two and a half weeks and I tweaked it again towards the end of the game. It needs a rest and hopefully I'll be able to do that now.

'Hopefully, come Monday, Cress (Ryan Cresswell) will be fit and I'll be in fit and we can work on things and get a regular back four playing and I'm sure the clean sheets and wins will come.'

Suggesting that Ronnie Moore will get someone in before the deadline (which we now know has happened today), Nick replied, 'If he thinks he needs someone in then that's up to him and we will welcome whoever comes here to the squad. We're all in this together and we all want to get promoted this year.

'I mean, there's all this doom and gloom about the place but I think everyone needs to remember that we're one place off third place and we're not doing that badly. Everyone seems to be down and the fans have a right not to be happy but we've had two wins before the draw tonight in the league and we're not in a bad place at the minute.'
