Fenton eyeing Wembley date

Last updated : 07 November 2008 By Bigrich.....
Although the Millers are still in all the cup competitions, defender Nick Fenton tells the Advertiser that teh Johnstones Paint Trophy is the Millers best chance of silverware.

"We're in the northern semi-final now and I think it was this time last year with Grimsby that we started thinking we'd a chance of going all the way," he said.

"In the early rounds you don't think much of it but when you get to this stage you start believing you've a chance of doing something. It gets interesting. I got to the final proper last year so I know what it's like if you can get to Wembley. It's a fantastic experience. We got beat 2-0 but walking out in front of 56,000 was fantastic. It's a great place and you don't realise how big it is until you're there. I'd love to go back." he added

"We've got this far in the competition the hard way. We've beaten Leeds and Leicester and we've no-one to fear."

"We seem to play very well against teams from higher divisions, We defend well as a unit and catch them on the counterattack and it seems to be quite effective. In the cup games, the higher teams allow you to play whereas you come back to League Two and teams are pressing you from the top and there's less room to play. That's why it's more argy bargy and physical and fast and furious."

"You can't be fearful. We have been the underdogs and have had nothing to lose."

Fenton looked back at Tuesday nights impressive win over League 1 high flyers Leicester City; "We were probably the better team throughout the game, Leicester are a massive club. They have some good players but I think they were more direct than the other teams. The others came and passed it but they had Steve Howard up front and obviously tried to utilise him."

"He caused us a few problems but we got to grips with it and saw the game out." he added.

Tomorrow sees the Millers visit Aldershot in the FA Cup first round; "The FA Cup is where the money is and a club like ours needs it. We want to get to the second, third or fourth stage to try and get a big club again."

"It will be a tough game at Aldershot. We need to go down there and apply ourselves right and get a good result. Once we get that out of the way, we'll start thinking about Stoke."

"The games are coming thick and fast and if we draw at Aldershot we're going to be playing midweek games for just about another month but as a player that's all you want. You'd rather play than train."
