RUFC - Big Guy's back in town

RUFC - Big Guy's back in town

Rotherham United take on Torquay United at Don Valley tomorrow afternoon in the final game of the season and although the Millers season has fizzled out, Torquay probably only need a draw to secure their play-off place.

Former Miller, Guy Branston, will be at Don Valley tomorrow with the Gulls trying to get them into the play-offs. Guy, who played over one hundred games for Rotherham, joined, originally on loan from Leicester City in 1999 and enjoyed two promotion seasons with us and left to join neighbours Sheffield Wednesday in 2004.

Speaking to The Herald, the thirty-two year old said, 'I don't want to be drawing and then running for the dressing-room to find out how the others have got on. If we win the match, even if it's just 1-0, we're in the play-offs - end of story.

'Everyone will have to be at it for the full ninety minutes but we haven`t come all this way and done so well to let one lapse of concentration spoil it. We`re in good form and I know we can do it.`

Talking about when he played for the Millers, Guy said, 'I enjoyed living there, I became an adopted Yorkshireman if you like. Although Rotherham were at Millmoor then and now they are at Don Valley, it`s still old territory for me because I did play a few reserve games there. The pitch isn`t the best but you can`t call yourself a proper footballer if you can`t cope with the odd bobble now and then.

'It's a great game for me, and I'm really looking forward to it.'

Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott says he knows Guy very well, being an ex-team mate of his brother, Rob. 'He`s a good player at this level,` Andy said. 'He`s very, very strong and determined and organises and he`s probably a big reason why Torquay have done so well this year. He`s dangerous in both boxes and we`ll have a tough game on our hands.`

Guy's certainly been around since he left the Millers, firstly spending a season with Sheffield Wednesday before moving on to Oldham Peterborough, Notts County, Kettering Town, Burton Albion and now Torquay. I think, if Torquay do make it to the play-offs, we will wish Big Guy all the best.
