RYAN’S READY FOR A SCRAP

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

LEAGUE ONE

CH­ESTER­FIELD mid­fielder Jimmy Ryan has in­sisted Paul Cook’s ti­tle chasers can more than hold their own when things get phys­i­cal.

Cook’s teams have a rep­u­ta­tion as a neat ball play­ing side but Ryan be­lieves they can also scrap when they need to.

Ryan said: “We’re not re­ally a phys­i­cal side but we’ve stood up to a lot of teams and a lot of phys­i­cal sides and we’ve come out on top which shows the league that we can do the ugly side.

“It’s hard be­cause we like to pass the ball around and get the ball on the floor, which is hard in this league. A lot of teams want to kick it long and play the con­di­tions with phys­i­cal­ity.”
