Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore has been thwarted in his attempt to bring in loan players this week.

After last weekends loss at Bury, Moore said he wanted to bring in one or two before this Saturday’s game against Aldershot. But, after drawing blanks all week he told David Beddows of The Advertiser that any transfer activity would probably be next week now.

‘The players we bring in have got to be better than what we already have,’ Moore said. ‘We’ve looked at one or two Championship clubs who have players on the fringes but some of them are on £5,000 a week.’

It seems more than likely that Moore is looking for someone in midfield and also a defender and he said, ‘We’ve no composure after we concede and what we need is someone to put their foot on the ball, keep it and take the sting out of the game. We have to defend better, which isn’t a moan at the back four. The midfield has to work harder and the strikers have to work their socks off.

‘This is the same team that started the season so well and Jimmy Mullen and I have done nothing different since we came in. What has changed is that individual errors, that were going unpunished before, are now getting punished. You can be the best coach in the world but you can’t legislate for individual mistakes.

‘In the meantime we’ve circulated other clubs telling them we have players available to go out on loan but not said any specific names because we want to see what they come back with.’
