RUFC - Skipper on come back trail

RUFC - Skipper on come back trail

Rotherham United captain, Ryan Cresswell admits to feeling helpless at the moment as he sits in the stands with an injury but there is a light at the end of the tunnel as he is hoping to be back in full-contact training before Christmas.

This is good news for the Millers skipper who will be twenty-four next month. Since joining the Millers from Bury in June last year, the tall defender has suffered a number of injuries, not least a broken collarbone.

Speaking to Dom Howson of The Star, Cress said, '"On a match day, you don`t feel part of it when you are injured even though you are part of the squad. You feel like a bit of an outsider. And I get so frustrated because I can`t do anything to help the lads out. You feel so helpless.`

This season Ryan has played in just nine games, scoring in his last game against Torquay in September but also suffering damaged ankle ligaments which has kept him on the sidelines since.

'Every time I get an injury it seems to be something bad. It is not as if I went over on my ankle and I could train again within a couple of weeks. It was a real nasty one. The club have been really good with me. The physio and the fitness coach are working all hours with me. Hopefully, I`m looking at returning to full contact training next month.`

Looking to put this year behind him, the former Sheffield United player is hoping his luck will change with the start of a new year. 'All I can do is get on with it and push to get back to full fitness. If I played a game before the New Year, that would be a bonus but realistically I think it will be the beginning of January.`

Good news this! But let's hope he's not brought back before he's fully fit
