RUFC - Cress 'if the gaffer wants me I'm ready'

RUFC - Cress 'if the gaffer wants me I'm ready'

Rotherham United skipper, Ryan Cresswell is looking forward to his return to playing for the first team.

Speaking to MillersPlayer this evening, after the Millers could only manageda nil-nil draw with Barnet, who are in the relegation places in the table, Cress said, 'There was no chance of me playing today.

'I've been training all week and it's a matter of getting my fitness back. If there's a reserve game this week I will be involved in that and then I'll be knocking on the gaffers door to get a starting place.

'I feel fine. I've been doing extra training in the gym and running with Andy Liddell round the track and before today's game we did some sprint work. I feel fresh and I feel ready to play but there's nothing like football time and game time. And, if the gaffer wanted to chuck me in at the deep end, I'm up for that and I'm willing to do it.

'The first couple of games back you do feel tired but you have to be mentally switched on.

'Nick Fenton and Johnny Mullins have been doing well and you can't take anything away from them. Mulls has done well coming from right-back to play centre-half and has showed he's comfortable playing in that position. Obviously, on a personal note, I'd like to see him playing back at right-back and me back at centre-half.

'Today's game was one of them that if we'd scored the first goal we'd have gone on to win comfortably. In the first half, if we'd took a couple of chances, we'd have won the game. Barnet came for the draw and packed everyone behind the ball. I think the key word after today's game is frustrating.'

Asked about the sending off, Ryan said, 'It's never a sending off. Their striker held the ball for ten or fifteen seconds and, if anything, he's got to book him for time wasting. Tom's just literally gone to get the ball out of his hands and the linesman has told the referee that he's swung a punch which, everyone inside the ground, apart from the linesman and the referee, saw that he wasn't a punch. But, he's got a three match ban for violent conduct and we will sadly miss him.'
