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

RUFC - Fenton 'Pitch didn't help'

Rotherham United stand-in skipper, Nick Fenton thought they should have killed Barnet off in the first half of yesterday`s game.

Speaking to MillersPlayer after the nil-nil draw, the thirty-one year old defender said, 'We had the chances in the first half to kill it off. They are very vulnerable away from home and we had so much pressure first half it was untrue but we couldn`t get that breakthrough.

'I thought we started the second half well and then Tom`s (Newey) got sent off, which was never a sending off. The fellow`s held the ball for fifteen seconds and I`m screaming at the linesman that he`s got to let it go and Tom`s put his arm round him to get the ball and the linesman said to the referee that he`s punched him. Now I was stood there and he`s definitely not punched him and it shouldn`t have been a sending off.

'From there we were still trying to go forward and they`ve had a few chances as well, which were probably their only chances of the game. In the end, although we should have taken three, a point is probably a good result for us.

'The pitch didn`t help us any and you can`t really play football on it because it`s awful. And it`s a worry, because it`s hard for our quality players like Lawsy (Nicky Law), Alfie (Adam Le Fondre) and Marsh (Marcus Marshall) and Omar (Daley) when he comes on because it`s hard for them to play football on there. It`s really boggy and sticky and we said before the game that we`d have to play in the corners for the first twenty to twenty-five minutes to try and get on top, which we did. But it`s hard and it`s heavy on the legs. But, it`s the same for both sides. We`ve got six or seven more games here so we will have to try and deal with it and try and get some good results.


'We are happy with keeping a clean sheet but disappointed that we didn`t go on and win the game. The lads in defence who are playing now have to keep playing well to keep the shirt. We know that Cressy (Ryan Cresswell) is nearly ready to come back in but if we keep playing well and keeping clean sheets then we will keep our shirts, if not then we know Cressy is waiting to come in.`
