RUFC - Answer To Injury Problem Easy?
Could the answer to the injury problem be staring us in the face?
We reported earlier that a number of players were deemed, as of today, doubtful for Thursday's home tie against Preston North End and it looked like we were down to the bare bones.
But there are two players who I can think of who could fit into the roles if needed - Michael Tidser and David Worrall both midfielders.
Tids joined the Millers from Greenock Morton in the summer and made sixteen appearances, though the majority of those were off the bench, before going out on loan to 'get games' in January back to Scotland with Ross County who he has also made sixteen appearances for.
David Worrall also joined the Millers in the summer, this time from Bury but has his season hampered by injury so only actually appeared four times, coming off the bench and scoring the winning goal against Crawley in mid-August. Worrall was sent out to Oldham in January for a loan spell to get some playing time and has made eighteen appearances with their Manager Lee Johnson hinting, on more than one occasion, that he'd like to sign the twenty-three year old on a permanent deal.
With both Ross County and Oldham Athletics`s seasons now at an end shouldn't the players now return to their parent club, which is us, Rotherham? They've both been playing so both should be match fit and, if nothing else, could make up the numbers on the bench. After all, that's what happened with Ryan Taylor who was out on loan with Exeter City and came back at the end of his loan period to not only play in the play-offs but score two goals in the final.
