RUFC - Ronnie reveals fully fit squad

RUFC - Ronnie reveals fully fit squad

Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore says his squad have a clean bill of health before the game tomorrow at Don Valley against Barnet.

Speaking to MillersPlayer, Moore said, 'Callum (Kennedy) is over the virus he picked up before Tuesday's game, Cress (Ryan Cresswell) and Ian (Thomas-Moore) are fine so it gives us quite a healthy bunch of players.

'The big thing for me is that we've got twenty-four players who all want to and are all capable of playing and it's fantastic for us that they are all fit. I mean we're going to be very lucky if the side that plays this Saturday is the side that will compete the following Saturday because three games in a week is hard but we've no reason to risk players because we've got others in similar positions that we can change.

'Unfortunately, you can only have eighteen involved so there will be one or two senior players who will certainly be unhappy tomorrow. But, they have to handle it in the right way. We've got a lot of games coming up so there's no time for bottom lips out, it needs everybody sticking together and doing the right thing

'Johnny Mullins is fine. He got the full ball right in his face on Tuesday to start with and then got an elbow. He felt a bit dizzy but he's trained so everything's looking well.

'Ian has trained, done all the sprints and all the running so he'll come into contention.

'Ryan will be back, definitely next week. He's not had a game and we are trying like mad to get a reserve team game for next Wednesday behind closed doors, because I don't want to push him in until he's had ninety minutes. Once he's got the cobwebs off and played for those ninety minutes there is every chance that he could be available for the Bury game.

'It's decision time for me. We've played well in two of the games just recently and picked up four points, so it's a long hard decision. Do you change it? Why alter it when you're going so well? They are the things I need to think about before I make the final decision.

'We've had two seven hour journeys this week down to Torquay and back so we've given them a couple of days off to get over it, because if they're not fit now they're never going to be fit. They've been in training this morning and we're getting them raring to go tomorrow.'

Maybe a good job we didn't stick to the original plan of only having '20' in the squad then, eh
