RUFC - Lids waiting on Fenton

Rotherham United Caretaker Manager, Andy Liddell was reflecting on Friday's six-nil win earlier today and thought that his team might have deserved a few more goals.

Speaking to MillersPlayer. Lids said, 'It all came together and we might have even deserved a few more to be honest. We worked hard for that victory and the lads deserved it.'

Asked about Nick Fenton, who went off at half-time with a tight hamstring, Lids said he wasn't sure if he will be fit for tomorrow nights game with Shrewsbury at Don Valley.

'I spoke to Dennis (Circuit) this morning and it was tight so we are going to have to monitor that one. Apart from that everyone else is fit.'

Skipper, Ryan Cresswell replaced Fenton for the second half and Lids said, 'He's ready to go. Paul (Warne) did a bit of fitness work with him the other day and we'll do a little bit of sharpness with him today, though nothing too heavy. But Ryan is desperate to play and, if he's needed, he'll be ready.

'We've got twenty-two first team players and there's not much between them so if you have to replace one you aren't losing anything.'

Talking about Ian Thomas-Moore, the caretaker manager said, 'In any walk of life when you work with your dad and he loses his job it's going to be upsetting but you didn't see that on Friday night. He knows what he's doing, Ian, and he just got on with it because he's a professional. I was very pleased for him because he's struggled for a few goals but he has been playing out wide. It's his first game down the middle and he responded. It was fantastic.'

It was the first time Ryan Taylor and Thomas-Moore had played up front together and Lids was asked how he saw that developing. 'It will have to develop,' he said, 'because we've got Adam (Le Fondre) and Liam (Henderson) sitting on the bench. If they work as hard as they can but don't play well I can take that all day long but the problems will come when they don't work as hard and me and Paul think they can.'

Mark Randall was one of the players who missed out on being in the squad last Friday and Lids said, 'He's unfortunate because Mark is a good players but we've also got other good players. He's working hard in training and he's always there to be used. There's no doubt about it Mark will feature at some point because he's a good player - he plays for Arsenal so he's got to be a good player.

'It's hard to pick a team. Picking subs is hard and we've got four or five who aren't even going to be subs. Not just Mark, there's Steve Brogan, Luke Ashworth, Callum Kennedy who are all first team players so it's hard to do. We're very fortunate to have those players to pick from and they are all close in my plans. I've said to the players work as hard as you possibly can and if you're not in the team try and get in the team and if you're in the team stay in the team and work as hard as you can in training. We'll need Stephen and Jamie (Green) because the pair of them are good players.'
