Richard Wood gets chance to resurrect Millers career

Richard Wood will have one last chance to resurrect his Rotherham career after being recalled from his loan spell at Chesterfield.

The 30-year-old centre-half, who joined the Millers in 2014, has yet to feature this season, having made only eight appearances last term.

He has spent time in League One on loan at Fleetwood and most recently Chesterfield, but has been brought back to New York Stadium for cover.

With his contract due to expire in the summer, Wood now has the chance to try and stake a claim for a new deal, with boss Neil Redfearn prepared to give him an opportunity.

“Harry Toffolo has a virus so we have recalled Richard because we needed the extra body, but we wanted to bring Richard back anyway," Redfearn said.

“He has been out and got some games and it will be good for me now to have a look at him. He is an experienced defender and he gives us good competition and cover.

“He is somebody that I haven’t really had chance to have a good look at, so it will be good for me to see him at close quarters.

“He played and helped Chesterfield to a good point against Coventry. He is obviously someone who is very capable.

“We are light on bodies because of injuries at the moment so he gives us depth, and he has the opportunity now to stake a claim for a place in our first team.

“He probably needed to go out, because he really needed to be playing. He has done that now, and he comes back to us ready to fight for a place.”

Wood played 90 minutes of Chesterfield’s 1-1 draw with Coventry on Monday and made seven appearances for the Spireites in total.

His last game for Rotherham was in the 0-0 draw with Leeds at Elland Road on the final day of last season.
