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

RUFC - Dennis and Ronnie on the injury front

Rotherham United physio, Dennis Circuit talks about the Millers latest injury news

Nick Fenton - he picked up an injury to his left thigh last Tuesday and so he was rested for a couple of days. We did a little bit of treatment on him on Thursday and Friday and left it until late Saturday for a fitness test, which, unfortunately, he didn't pass and it would have been too much of a risk to think of starting him. He's back in full training and has got through everything.

Mark Randall - he was tight in his right hamstring and he needed a couple of days rest. It was one of those injuries that if you push them beyond what they can do then you risk making it a lot worse. He's had three days off and worked at the gym at Don Valley and trained Monday and came through ninety minutes with the Reserves yesterday.

Ryan Cresswell - came through the game on Saturday OK, apart from tiredness. We're all pleased, with him being out for ten weeks that he managed to get through the ninety minutes.

Danny Coid - Danny had a slight dead leg and then got another knock on it in the game but has trained all week but is still not one hundred per cent and we hope he doesn't get another knock on it. He's fully functional and hopefully will be available for selection on Friday night.

Speaking to MillersPlayer, Dennis said, 'Even though there are one or two carrying niggles it's nice, at this stage of the season, that everyone is training.'


Meanwhile, Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore is happy that the only real headaches he has are minimal.

Speaking to Radio Sheffield about the recent injured players, he said, 'Nick (Fenton) has trained this morning (Wednesday) and it's nice to have him back. Whether he gets back into the side is a decision I'll have to make later on in the week.

'Mark Randall's hamstring is still a little bit tight and so we will have to wait until the last minute to see how he is. But, the most important thing is that he got a game under his belt for the reserves.

'Coidy (Danny Coid) has still got a knock and it's going to be touch and go whether he plays and, if he doesn't play, then Dale Tonge will continue in that position.

'It's great that they are the only headaches. The last thing I want is to say here's the eleven now off you go. It's great that we've got players all wanting to play and Danny Harrison came on and did well and played well in the reserves so if the two lads in mid-field are tired or not looking right then we can change them over. Mark Bradley did well in the reserves so we've got a lot coming in the good positions and with a lot of games coming thick and fast you need the squad that we've got.'
