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

RUFC - Patto praise for Grabban and Cress

Join The Vital Debate


Rotherham United caretaker Manager, Darren Patterson told Radio Sheffield that striker, Lewis Grabban had done very well this season.

Speaking after the striker got a rare headed goal, Patto said, 'Lewis was excellent. People have to remember that it`s his first full season and I`m pleased that he`s got another goal.

'He`s got all kinds in his locker and could have had more.`

Lewis, who started the game after starting last weekend`s game at Crawley on the bench, got his nineteenth goal today and is the Millers top scorer so far this season.

Patto also had praise for returning skipper, Ryan Cresswell saying, 'He`s done really, really well, Cress. He`s been unlucky with the injury and then we went on a semi-defensive decent run, so he`s had to be patient and I`m pleased for him. He was excellent today. He was bright, he was positive and he was actually pretty disappointed that he didn`t score.`

Youth player, Alec Denton was in the squad today and Patto said it was 'deservedly so`. 'He`s been out on loan and he`s been impressive in the reserves.

'I`m keen to get as many youth players through as I can and Darren Sarll has done an outstanding job with him this season. He`s been as he`s stepped up beside me along with the rest of the staff and it`s nice for them to get a bit of a pat on the back for what they`ve done.`

Asked if he would be going to Wimbledon on Friday, Patto said, 'Yes. But you`ve got to remember that we`ve got Sam Hoskins here as well who was unfortunate not to get in. If we can get him some football we will but sometimes you don`t have that luxury, but I would have no problems putting the lad in. It was a tough decision for me with the starting line-up. Kieron (Cadogan) was unlucky to be dropped today because he probably had his best game away at Crawley last week but I decided to go for the three up front and, thankfully, it worked.`
