Raynes setback for the Millers

Have your say

ROTHERHAM United are fearing a lengthy lay-off for central defender Michael Raynes.

He was stretchered off in the draw at Northampton having gone down clutching his knee, after slipping.

“It doesn’t sound good,” said manager Andy Scott. “The lad heard a ‘pop’ as he turned. We’ll have to see what the outcome of examination is.”

Scott said that just before that injury, fellow central defender Johnny Mullins had also hurt his knee and looked as if he might have to go off. He managed to play all the game. The draw, Rotherham’s third in succession, extended their run without a win to 10 matches, nine in League Two.

They will have defender Guy Branston available for next Saturday’s home game with Aldershot after his three-match ban.

Former Sheffield United Head of Commercial, Steve Lewis, is joining Rotherham in a similar capacity after the departure of Steve Coakley who is joining the Blades.
