RUFC - Defender Pleased To Be Back

RUFC - Defender Pleased To Be Back

Rotherham United defender Craig Morgan was pleased to get his first ninety minutes under his belt since November on Saturday and is now getting ready for the run-in until the end of the season.

Craig suffered a fracture to his leg but is now back and says, 'It was good to be back but it`s hard to come out of a performance as a defender and feel you've done well when you lost three-nil. It was a bad day all round. We didn't have any shots and conceded three goals.`

On a good note Craig carried on, 'it was the first time I came out of a game mentally and physically right and with no pain. I`d played a couple of reserve games and was hobbling around in them and, as much as I wanted to play, it wouldn't have been fair to say I was fit when I wasn`t. I told the gaffer that I was feeling one hundred per cent but left the decision up to him.

'We have hit a bit of a bad run at a bad time,` the twenty-seven year old told David Beddows of The Advertiser. 'Hopefully we`ll go on a run now because any team that wants to get promoted needs to do that. Everyone knows what`s required and it`s just a matter of transferring that onto the pitch. We know we need to be winning. Drawing isn't going to be enough to get us in the top three.

'We need to start winning games if we want to go up.`

It was good to see Craig back and just a pity that it was such a poor game for so many of the team on the day. Here`s hoping - snow allowing - it`s a much better result tomorrow at home to Exeter.
