RUFC - ITM 'been a difficult week'

RUFC - ITM 'been a difficult week'

Rotherham United's hat-trick hero from last night, Ian Thomas Moore said it hasn't been an easy week this week after his father, Ronnie, lost his job as Millers Manager.

Speaking to Radio Sheffield after the six-nil win over Lincoln, Ian said, 'It's been difficult to say the least but today it's all gone well for me.

'I spoke to my dad last night and he said he knew we'd win and I know he's got me as first goal scorer, so that's a bit of a bonus for him.'

The thirty-four year old partnered Ryan Taylor up front with new caretaker manager, Andy Liddell, dropping top scorer, Adam Le Fondre to the bench, which Ian says was a big decision. 'It's worked out well but it was a big decision for him leaving Alfie out and bringing in the old manager's son. But, I'm here to help the team and if Alf's back in the team on Tuesday I'll be there to come on as sub and that's not a problem.'

Asked about the difference between this week and last, the former Tranmere striker said, 'When a new manager comes in teams seem to kick on a bit more. And there's players in there who are out of contract at the end of the season so they're all playing for a new deal. It's a fairy tale start for the two new managers and they couldn't have wished for a better start and hopefully it will carry on for them.

'The performance at Chesterfield was awful and the fans travelled in their thousands and we were embarrassing really. Hopefully we've put that right today. They were very vocal tonight and I was really pleased to hear them singing my name.

'I'd been a little bit disappointed with my goal scoring performance since I've come in although I've only played once up front at Bradford. My dad always knew I wanted to play as striker but the problem was getting me in there to play it with Alfie scoring so many goals and it was a difficult decision, which was probably easier for Andy to make with me not being his son.

'We won't get carried away but promotion is still a probability and I think if we win another six or seven games then it could be. It's the business end of the season now and the pressures on us to keep picking those three points up.'
