Moore reveals Pope fitness battle.

Last updated : 06 October 2009 By Bigrich.....
Pope joined the Millers in the Summer after a £150k move from Crewe. But looked like sitting out of a return to his former hunting ground after coming off injured in the midweek defeat at Northampton last Tuesday.

However Pope wore a back brace in a bid to play; "The lad had a back brace on and had a fitness test at half past one and decided then that he'd be OK and play," boss Ronnie Moore said.

"He gave his all and I took him off when I did because I thought it was time. I sort of recommended him to Mark Robins when he was looking around at strikers, so I know what he's about.."

"He got a good hand from the Crewe fans, they obviously appreciate what they saw from him when he was with them, and he is the sort who'll work and graft." he added.
