ROTHER­HAM as­sis­tant man­ager Paul Raynor says the club’s abil­ity to iden­tify loa­nees has been a ma­jor fac­tor in their fine form.

James Tav­ernier and Haris Vuc­kic, who both joined from New­cas­tle in Novem­ber, are just two of the loan play­ers who have im­pressed with the pro­mo­tion con­tenders.

And Raynor says the en­vi­ron­ment and first-team op­por­tu­ni­ties at the club ap­peal to loan sign­ings.

“As soon as James joined us he said he wanted to stop un­til the end of the sea­son,” he said.“He’d had loan spells be­fore for a month here and a month there but you can’t re­ally get to know your team­mates like that.

“This is the first time he’s been on a loan spell and played ev­ery week and played very, very well.

“Miles Ad­di­son has come in for games and done very well, Tom Hitch­cock and Haris have scored goals and Richie Small­wood is fun­da­men­tal to how we are play­ing at the mo­ment.

“They’ve all played a mas­sive part in what we are try­ing to do and they’ve in­te­grated into the squad fan­tas­ti­cally well.”

HAPPY MAN: Paul Raynor
