Lee Frecklington talks to www.themillers.co.uk...Captain Lee Frecklington is looking forward to a potential return to action this evening as the Millers take on Gornik Zabrze at Hotel Remes.
The midfielder is back in full training after missing Tuesday’s game with Miedz Legnica as a precaution, and looks set to play a part in pre-season for the fisrt time this evening.
Boss Alan Stubbs earlier revealed that Frecklington, along with Danny Ward and Joe Mattock look set to play a part, as the Millers look to maintain their 100% record so far during pre-season.
“It is nice to be back,” Frecklington told www.themillers.co.uk
“I was really disappointed to miss the first few games and some of training, but delighted to be back in and looking forward to potentially playing a part tonight.”
The standard of opposition has gradually increased for the Millers, with Gornik likely to pose the toughest challenge so far.
The skipper is expecting a tough examination but is looking forward to locking horns with a side that played in the Polish top flight last season.
“From watching the game the other night, I thought that the opposition was technically good, and if Gornik are better than they are then it is going to be a tough test for us,” the 30-year-old affirmed.
“It is good to play decent opposition, it will be a good workout and it is just what we need at this moment.
“I saw the weather before we arrived and I was quite optimistic that it would be dry. It hasn’t worked out that way, but we have done what we have needed to do, it hasn’t had too much of an impact so it has been good.”
Whilst Frecklington is looking to catch up on some valuable game time this evening, he revealed that the rest of the squad are in good shape as they look to be ready for the big kick off against Wolverhampton Wanderers on August 6th.
“From a personal point of view I need to get more training and get myself involved in some of the games, but the lads on the whole look sharp, training has been good which will put us in good stead for the start of the season."
