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

RUFC - Millers skipper after Saturday's win

Rotherham United's stand-in skipper, Nick Fenton says that the win over Crewe Alexandra at Don Valley on Saturday was a 'fight'.

Speaking to MillersPlayer after the three-one win, Fenton said, 'The conditions were tough, it was raining and the pitch was very slick. Crewe played some good football but I thought we matched them for football and our work rate was fantastic and I thought we were the better side.

'We've lost four of the last five, which we aren't happy with and we were desperate for three points today which we got and which gives us a bit of space between us and Crewe.' Crewe are a tough side and we've taken six points of them this season, which I can't see many teams doing, so it's a great three points for us but we've got a tough game at Gillingham and a tough game at Oxford after that.

Asked if this was the sort of game the Millers might have drawn last season, Nick said, 'Possibly. There were doubts in your mind when they come back and equalise and you start thinking 'here we go again'. But, we've won the last four out of five here at Don Valley and if we can keep doing that and picking points up away from home then that will hopefully lead to promotion.

'February is a massive month for us because we play all those round about us and if we can get a good run of results going and bring some points in, then this month could be massive for us.

Speaking about Nick's sudden goal rush, he said of his goal against Crewe, 'It was originally a set-piece and I was already up there so I took a gamble and got into the box, it went through a few legs, just came to me and I just slotted it in. I thought it was a decent finish with the outside of my right foot and I was happy with it. I've scored three now and I'm delighted with that. It's been two years coming and I'm delighted. I've none with my head yet, which is disappointing but I'll take them as they come.'

We really could do with 7 points from the next three games - that would really keep us in the running
