RUFC - Evans 'it's frustrating'

RUFC - Evans 'it's frustrating'

Rotherham United will be without midfielder Kari Arnason on Saturday as he has joined up with his International team Iceland for the forthcoming World Cup qualifiers.

Millers Boss Steve Evans says that it's frustrating especially as the last time he played an international he came back injured.

Speaking to MillersPlayer Steve said, 'We just get him fit again from that and he's away again so it is frustrating and disappointing when he's away on international duty but it's something you learn to live with and he'll be back for Aldershot.

'I've said it many time, Kari is our best player and so influential to the team. But I can't really moan too much because as a team in League Two we are fortunate that we have people of Kari's ability with us. We are also fortunate that, with Michael O'Connor on the stand-by list for Northern Ireland that they didn't get any knocks or he'd have been away as well. I think it might be a problem for us later on in the season because I think he's better than what they've got in their team at the moment.

'Michael missed six months of football and so he's only getting fitter and only getting better. He told me last week that he's got a real determination to get Rotherham United in those promotion places which is good to hear.'

Speaking about David Noble who must surely be in with a chance of playing some part in the game this weekend, despite all the problems surrounding him at the moment, his Manager said, 'I've known David for ten or twelve years and he's just top class. But, if his mind isn't one hundred per cent focused on his football then, by his own admission, David is not the player he should be.'

Speaking about Daniel Nardiello, the Millers Boss smiled saying, 'It's amazing isn't it that the wee people in their back bedroom on their computers trying to say there are issues when Daniel gets a groin strain in a practice match. Nards played the other day and he might not have been the best player but he worked so hard and puts himself around and obviously comes in to contention for Saturday's game but so do a couple more.

'Laurie Wilson played the ninety minutes of that game too and was very tired after it but it's a long time since he's had ninety minutes under his belt. But, he's got a hard job because he's going to have to displace 'Rolf' Harris which means, for the first time this season, we've got some competition for the left-back spot.'
