RUFC - News on Coughlan

Rotherham United had a late change for the win over Chester City on Saturday when captain, Graham Coughlan was pulled out of the team an hour before kick-off.

A meeting on the pitch between Coughlan and manager, Mark Robins resulted in Robins stopping his skipper from playing.

Speaking to The Star, Robins said, 'Graham had turned an ankle in training on Friday but he travelled to Chester with the team and he was prepared to play. I had to persuade him that he wasn't playing and I think it was the right decision. He hates missing out but you have to have a bit of responsibility. He admitted he was struggling but would have played. I have to look at the wider picture and with that information it was an easy decision for me to make.

'It means he has a few extra days to rest before the Peterborough game on Tuesday. We've got some big games coming up and there is the possibility of some suspensions hanging about.'

good decision in my opinion if he has an injury then don't play him until he's fully fit as this is now the telling time of the season especially with a lot of the pitch's being heavy due to the weather and we will need him for the table top clash on the 9th feb
