Rotherham United defender, Nick Fenton says that, as we’ve been the underdogs in most of the Cup Competitions so far, we have got nothing to lose.

Speaking to The Advertiser, the twenty-nine year old said, ‘We seem to play well against the higher teams and you can’t be fearful. Being the underdogs you have nothing to lose. In the cup games they seem to allow you to play but in League Two there’s more argy bargy and it’s a more physical game.

‘We’ve no one to fear. We’ve beaten Leeds and Leicester and Leicester are a massive club and Steve Howard caused us some problems up front. But, I think we were the better team throughout the game.’

Fenton, who played at Wembley in March for Grimsby in the Jonstone’s Paint Trophy final says it’s a fantastic experience and he wants to go again! ‘We’re in the Northern Semi-Finals of the JP Trophy and it’s now you start to think there’s a chance to go all the way. Wembley’s a great place and you don’t realise how big it is until you get there and I’d love to go back.’

The Millers play Aldershot tomorrow in the First Round proper of the FA Cup and Fenton says, ‘It will be a tough game and we will have to go down there and apply ourselves. The FA Cup is where the money is and a club like ours needs it. We want to get through the rounds until we can get a big club again.’
