Rotherham United were hoping to get some game time into midfielder Darren Potter yesterday but, once again, the Reserve game with Hartlepool was cancelled due to a waterlogged pitch, so the thirty-three year old was again left kicking his heels (hopefully not literally!)
Potter, who joined the Millers last summer, returned to training last month after being out since December with an Achilles injury and Millers Boss Paul Warne says that he needs minutes under his belt before returning to the first team, where he has made eighteen appearances so far.
It had been hoped that he would get some game time in a Reserve fixture against Mansfield last week but, again due to the adverse weather, the game was changed from it’s original place to an astroturf pitch and the Millers didn’t want him playing on it because of the nature of his injury.
What I’m wondering is why Rotherham can’t arrange a behind closed doors game so the midfielder can get these needed minutes? Surely that wouldn’t be impossible and would get him nearer to getting in the match day squad.
Or, of course, failing that there is always the over 50’s walking football as another option!
