'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Rohan Rubbishes Rumours

Rohan Ricketts has not had the best of seasons so far. Following a strong finish to the last campaign, Glenn Hoddle chose to make Rohan a permanent member of his squad that many thought would be pushing for automatic promotion this year.

But mirroring the teams underachievment, Rohan's season has been one of fits and starts, failing to reach anywhere near the players full potential.

It's not gone how I wanted it to go,' said the Rohan earlier this week.

'It's the first time ever something like this has happened to me. I've been out for about three weeks in the past but this is a very strange injury.'

'I came here on loan and had a good spell. I came back and had a good start to the season and then I got injured. Since then I've found it hard to get back to what I was.

'The injury kept me out for eight weeks and that just killed me. It killed my momentum. My momentum is everything. But I'm still fighting and waiting for my chance to play.'

Hi sabsence was seen by some of confirmation of a falling out with Wolves manager Glenn Hoddle. But Rohan is happy to put the record straight.

'I think they (the fans) know there's some kind of problem going on but I've heard rumours that people think I've had a bust-up with the manager while other people seem to know I've been injured,' he said, adding

'But the fact that they are talking about me at least means they haven't forgotten me.

'I don't know who starts the rumours and I'm not going to get to the bottom of it so I just get on with it.But I haven't had a bust-up, that's for sure.'

'The fans may have forgotten what I can do, but hopefully not. They know what I can do but I've not been playing.'

'If I get back in the team I need to stay in the team - not just for me but to benefit the team. I'd like to be given that chance as soon as I can because I feel I can give something.'

A sentiment that is shared by Glenn Hoddle who has long earmarked Rohan as one of his players that can create a match winning spark at any moment.

On Saturday that came in the guise of a superbly weighted cross for Carl Cort to score Wolves eventual winner.

More supply in a similar vein on Saturday, and Wolves on fire strikeforce, as well as their fans will be only too eager to show Rohan he's not forgotten.
