Worrell - 'We've got to keep going'

Worrell - 'We've got to keep going'

Rotherham United defender, David Worrell, has seen quite a lot in his two years at Millmoor.

He has played under three managers, fought out two bottom of the table battles, started with minus ten points and seen the club saved within a breath of it's life.

Mick Harford was the manager who brought in David from Plymouth telling him that he had the players to take the Millers back to the championship at the first attempt.

'Mick Harford was so positive,' David tells The Advertiser, 'he was ambitious about taking the club back up. But that didn't happen and he was sacked.

'Alan Knill came in and kept us up on the last game of the season. I have to say that I got two promotions with Plymouth but staying up on that last day was every bit as good. It felt like we had won the league.'

Worrell admits that his form dipped and Alan Knill dropped him for the last few games when he was in charge. The overlapping runs he made when he first arrived at Millmoor became infrequent to say the least.

'I have to be honest and say that I have been inconsistent this year. When the team's form dipped so did mine. But I do feel, since I got back into the team, my form has been OK,' he said. 'I am one of those players that play a little bit within myself when things aren't going well. It's a fault I've had all my career.'

Worrell would be happy to stay at Millmoor next season, even if it means a drop to Division Two. But he is not taking anything for granted. 'It depends on the new manager,' he said, 'my face might not fit and I am prepared for that - I'm open to anything; it's my livelihood.'

Worrell also thinks every member of the team should be fighting to stay up. 'Until it's mathematically impossible that we can't stay up we have a duty to fight and keep going. Once that time passes then we are playing for personal pride.

'I've played a lot of games for Rotherham United and been through a lot with them over the last two years. But, despite everything, I have enjoyed it.'
