RUFC - Moore worried about Taylor
Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore is a bit worried about striker Ryan Taylor who limped off the pitch today with twelve minutes to go.
Speaking to Radio Sheffield after the win over Macclesfield Town at Moss Rose, Moore was worried that Taylor may have the same metatarsal problem that he had at the start of the programme. 'We're hoping that Ryan hasn't got the same injury as he had before because if it is then it's a massive, massive blow for us,' Moore said.
'He's been fantastic recently and I thought, in the first half especially today, he dominated their two.
'He'll have an x-ray tomorrow and touch wood it's not the same injury but it was bang in the same spot. He came off limping and he was worried but it's no good saying anything until we've had it x-rayed.
'If there is something maybe I'll have to have a little chat with the Chairman and see what we can do.
'Mark Randall's loan is up on the twenty-fifth of the month but he's still not match fit and he's still getting used to this division. I think he thinks he's still playing for Arsenal sometimes when he gets the ball and takes his time and then he gets a whack and he's not used to that. Premier League players have more time on the ball but you don't get that at this level and he's got to learn to move the ball quicker and he will.
'At the end of the day we'll speak to the boy and see how he is with his fitness and take it from there.
'We've been in touch with Hull City regarding Will (Atkinson) and we'd like to keep him until the end of the season if we could.
'Will Atkinson's loan is up tomorrow and we've been in touch with Hull City and we'd like to keep him until the end of the season if we could. We need to get that done quickly but we're waiting on them so there isn't a lot we can do. We brought him off today because their three lads in there were cheating all day and we thought we'd have to strengthen up a little bit in there. But he has got a little bit of a hamstring but I think that's more tiredness than anything and two games in three days hasn't helped considering he hasn't played a lot of first team football, so I think he'll be all right.'
