Rotherham United new boy, coach Nicky Eaden said he was surprised when he heard that Ronnie Moore was leaving the Millers.

Speaking to MillersPlayer, the former Barnsley player said, ‘I maybe wasn’t so surprised when I got the call from Lids (Andy Liddell) because I’ve known him for over twenty years and that’s the way things work in football. So, I’m delighted to get back on board and get back in work and get on the training pitch.

‘I’ve known Lids since I was sixteen and we’ve kept in touch throughout that time. He’s a straight forward character who speaks his mind. I’ve kept a close eye on what’s been happening here because you keep a close eye on what your mates are up to and I think there’s still a great chance of achieving promotion.

‘Coming in here means you haven’t got to do any major surgery because there aren’t any major problems it’s probably just fine tuning more than anything that needs sorting because their attitude is spot on.’

Asked if he sees his role as working with the defence he agreed but then said, ‘But I don’t want to get lumbered with the defence! Lids and Warney are very attack minded but the way they want to go about it is not all out attack it’s more in the case of the work rate that’s going to go in and the pressure on the ball which, for me is great, because it makes it easy for the defenders. If your front six of the team are putting pressure on the ball then it makes it easier though up to Friday I don’t think they’d been getting battered’

Talking about the Lincoln game on Friday, Nicky said, ‘I had virtually a full season on loan at Lincoln and enjoyed my time there but that’s gone and we’ll be looking to turn them over.’
