RUFC - Skipper 'fourteen cup finals'

RUFC - Skipper 'fourteen cup finals'

Rotherham United have had a bit of a blip, as manager, Mark Robins tells us and the club is having off field problems but, captain, Graham Coughlan, says 'don't write us off.'

Speaking to The Advertiser, he said, 'We've got ourselves into a great position and we know we have to get back to winning ways. Hopefully that will be against Lincoln on Saturday.'

He admitted that, when the players were told on Monday about the financial problems it was totally unexpected and the initial feeling was of surprise and then shock. 'It's news you don't want to hear,' the Millers skipper carried on, 'but as a player there is nothing you can do about it. We have a choice, we can sit round and sulk or roll our sleeves up and get on with it. I believe the players at this club will do the latter.

'Everyone has predicaments in their lives but when the referee blows his whistle all that goes on in your mind is about winning three points.

'It is going to be up to us older players, me, Andy Warrington and Marc Joseph to help the lads through and make sure that everyone sticks together.

'We've got fourteen cup finals until the end of the season and promotion is still very much on the cards.'

He's been great! I think he's probably only had one poor game, one not so good game since he joined us. Trouble is when he was poor so were the rest of the team! He's a great captain
