RUFC - Moore has decisions to make regarding Coid
Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore says there are a lot of decisions to make about loanee Danny Coid.
Speaking to Radio Sheffield Moore said, 'Danny Coid has got medial ligaments on his ankle so he's going to be out for possibly two weeks but, to be fair to Dale Tonge, considering he hadn't played since October, to come in and perform the way he did at Macclesfield it was fantastic really. But we've really got to have a look and a think about Coid's injury. We're saying two weeks but it could well be three weeks and that would be the end of his loan so it's a big, big decision. But, I'll sit down with him on Thursday and see how he feels. He's had treatment on it at Blackpool, because it's crazy bringing him all the way from Blackpool over here for treatment. He's been fantastic for us and John Mullins has gone and played centre-half since Cresswell's been missing and done fantastic but Coid's use of the ball is first class so if we could keep him then I'd like to do it but there's a lot of decisions that need to be made.'
Talking about Dale Tonge, who made a surprising start for the Millers on Monday at Macclesfield, Moore said, 'I couldn't believe that he lasted ninety minutes. But Tongey is a fit lad, there's no doubt about that, but when you haven't played since October to come in, especially at Macc where they don't let you play and they are at your throats, he got through it brilliantly. He's never played regularly since I've been here but everyone tells me what a good player he is and how fit he is but he's never ever had a run. He's come in the side and got injured, come back in and got injured and I couldn't tell you, in the time I've been here, what type of a full back he is! But now, it's there for him and he's got a chance to impress us.
''We thought that Ryan Taylor would be a major doubt but he's had an x-ray on his foot and it's fine so that's some good news for us.'
