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

Ricky's Review

Ricky misses the next four matches, one of which is likely to be the first game of next season, the popular midfielder said 'It is disappointing because I wanted to see the season right through to the end, especially after winning my way back into the team, But it is one of those things.'

Ravenhill was due to have an operation on his ankle in the summer. 'Although it is a bad thing that I will miss the club's last three games, it has worked out well in the sense that the club have brought forward the operation from the end of the season. It will mean I will have an extra three weeks to get myself fully fit before we report back for pre-season training in late June.'

Ravenhill lost his place in the team when Kevin Horlock arrived.

'We had lost our way after the Carling Cup defeat against Arsenal and the manager looked to bring in some new faces during the January transfer window.

'To be fair Kevin did a good job while he was here, and because we were similar sort of players, I missed out.

'Even so I was sorry to see him go back to Portman Road after Saturday's game at Bradford because he was a good player and a really nice bloke.

'It was a big decision for him to reject a two-year contract at his age, but he lived in Suffolk and he had his family to think about. I think he is hoping to get himself fixed up with a club nearer his home. I would like to think that I have learnt from training with him for a couple of months and watching him play in matches.

'As I said earlier, it was good to get back into the first team in the last couple of games because everyone at the club wants to be a regular in the team.

'Fortunately I had a good run of games in the first half of the season and I played in all the big Carling Cup games, which was a great experience.'

The Donny-born midfielder went on to comment about his own performance this season 'I feel I have continued to progress as a player - though I know that there are things that I still need to work on such as my discipline, passing and shooting.

'I am 25 now and with the experience that I have got I think that the next few years will be the best of my career. I certainly hope so.'

'It is disappointing to just miss out again because we have been playing a lot better than some of the clubs who look likely finish in the top six.

'I think Nottingham Forest, who have come out of the pack will get into a play-off spot and go on to be promoted because they are the team in form.'
