Manager Speaks

Manager Speaks

Rotherham United manager, Alan Knill was speaking tonight on Radio Sheffield about the activity at Millmoor today

'Craig Fleming will bring in great experience,' he said, 'he is a natural leader and natural competitor. He can play anywhere across the back four and is very versatile. I needed someone to come in and be a leader and Craig fitted that bill.'

On Theo Streete he said, 'Theo had a good loan spell at Doncaster Rovers and we tried to get him just after he left there but couldn't do a deal. He is young and quick and has a long throw. We have it at the end of the season to cover at right back.'

'Ian Henderson is good and very clever,' said the manager, 'He just needs a goal. And, it adds more competition up front.'

'It was a pity it didn't work out with Scott Wiseman he is a great athlete and great at going forward. He needs to work hard on his defensive duties. I couldn't guarantee his first team football.'

'We have other good news in that Michael Keane and Gregor Robertson have trained all week and I will have a nearly fully fit squad for the Brighton game.'

'I have asked everyone for a midfielder but wages have been a stumbling block or the length of the loan. I am happy to get Craig, Theo and Hendo. The Board have been fantastic.'

When asked about the difficulty of the transfer window closing he said,

I hope when it gets to twelve o'clock tonight no more of my players have gone!'
