'If It's Football, It's Vital'

RUFC - Fenton delighted with win

Rotherham United's stand-in skipper, Nick Fenton scored his first goal in over two years on Monday afternoon in the two-nil win over Macclesfield and to say he was delighted is a bit of an understatement!

After kicking the ball into the net (not heading it like some reports I've seen say), the thirty-one year old left all his team mates behind as he ran the length of the pitch to celebrate with the Millers' following at Moss Rose.

Speaking to MillersPlayer about the goal after the game, Nick said, 'It was a scruffy goal - a left foot toe poke and I should have had one in the first half as well but I just couldn't get to it.

'But it was a great win for us today and we needed it. It was a battling game but we ground it out and got a very good goal first half. We didn't play as well as we should have done in the second half but at the end of the day it's a great win and we've got six points from the two games.'

Talking about Macclesfield's long throws, Nick said, 'They had long throws from both sides which is unusual but I thought we handled it very well. I don't think they had many chances, a couple of headers in the whole game. We defended well as a team and another clean sheet which is three in a row and we are all chuffed to bits about that.

'We've had an unsettled back four and with Cress (Ryan Cresswell) out injured we've got to sort ourselves out and Tongey (Dale Tonge) has come in today and he's had a great game after being out injured for so long and having just had one reserve game to keep going for ninety minutes I thought he was fantastic. But we've got a massive squad here and all are quality players so we aren't worried if anyone gets injured because we know someone can come in and do a job, which was the case today with Tongey, who is in for Coid, and got told at half past one that he was playing.

'We've got competition for places all over the field and I won't take it for granted that I'll play every week. I know I've got to work hard and do well to keep myself in the team. We played some good stuff on Saturday and dug in today and we've got a lot of energy in the team. Marcus (Marshall) gives you a lot of pace on that side and Will(Atkinson) on the left gives you pace on that side as well and I think there is more pace in the side which is a big difference between this season and last.

'There's a two point gap between us and Chesterfield in top now which is fantastic because we are catching up with them which is a positive thing for us and we want to keep the good run going.'
