Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott has admitted to feeling frustrated over defender Guy Branson.

Big Guy returned to Rotherham last month on a three-month loan from Bradford City and began the game against Bristol Rovers, although, unfortunately, didn’t finish the game as he got a red card midway through the second half. Having served a three-match ban, Guy is available for selection on Saturday for the game, at Don Valley, against Aldershot. But then he won’t be able to play the next two games as Bradford don’t want him to play in the FA Cup and he won’t be able to play against them the following week.

Speaking to MillersPlayer, Scott said, ‘Guy’s been working very, very hard and is available for the squad on Saturday. This is good news given the Raynes and Cresswell problems.

‘I watched them (Aldershot) on Tuesday and I have to decide on the side although I have an idea of what I’m going to do and we will be working on things in training today.’

Saying it was frustrating only having Guy back for one game, Scott said, ‘It’s frustrating bringing someone in knowing they can help you out and then he’s not able to play in quite a few of the games. Obviously the sending-off didn’t help anyone but we knew we wouldn’t be able to play him in the FA Cup and obviously against Bradford which is normal proceedings.’

Speaking about Jon Harley who joined the same day as Branston but only for a month, Scott said, ‘I’ve spoken to Notts County this morning and we are hopeful that we can get something done. I have to speak to Jon today but he’s playing well and enjoying his football so we are hopeful that he’ll be happy to stay.’
