Rotherham United skipper, Swinton born Ryan Cresswell, thinks that tomorrow`s game against Shrewsbury is their first big away test.

After playing two away games already this season, and keeping clean sheets in them both, the twenty-two year old thinks him, and his defensive team mates, are going to have their work cut out tomorrow but will go into the game with the ‘we`re not leaving without anything` attitude.

Speaking to The Advertiser, Cresswell said, ‘I think every away game in this league is hard but Shrewsbury is just that little bit harder. They`re a good side at home and there will be expectation among their fans but, if we can keep Shrewsbury at bay, then we can hopefully nick something.`

Speaking about the recent league games – the six-four win over Cheltenham and the one-nil win at Hereford last week – the former Sheffield United player said, ‘While a striker might like to win four-nil I get just as good a feeling, if not a better feeling, winning one-nil. You know with a one-nil you`ve ground it out and earned it. I think we did that last Saturday.`

With Cresswell carrying a couple of injuries to his neck and hip, Manager Ronnie Moore had rated him as doubtful for the game at Hereford but Ryan said, ‘There was no way I wasn`t going to play!`

Great words from someone who is fast becoming a skipper the Millers can rely on.
