RUFC - Robins Pre Brentford

RUFC - Robins Pre Brentford

Rotherham United Manager, Mark Robins, told RotherFM that it has been difficult doing his job to the best of his ability when, since January, he has effectively had his hands and legs tied together.

'People may be criticising the players for their lack of effort on the pitch but I don't think it's that. I think it's an accumilation of events that's affected the perfomances in the last week or so,' Robins said. 'People are playing for pride, contracts and their livelihood and I hope we get a response from all of them over the next four weeks. It's easy to have a go at the players especially after last week but for the most part I've been happy with their contribution. These players have already proved that they can get to second in this league and into a play-off spot and stay there for a long period. But, the rug has been pulled from under them and you can understand them being disappointed. But they have jobs to do and the supporters expect a performance from them which we are after for the remainder of the season.

'It's affecting everyone. There's an air of resignation about the place and people are anxious that something happens soon. I was pleased when the Administrator put a deadline on people coming in and that's one thing we can focus on.

'I am in contact with the Administrator on a day to day basis and he keeps me informed of what's going on. We have to leave the off field things to him. I know he's talking to people about the takeover and at least there are people there willing to have a shot. These are interesting times.

'Of the possible minus fifteen points next season, yes, it's a possibility if we don't come out of administration but at the moment I think that's the least of our worries. We've just got to get on with this season and deal with what might happen to us next season.

'Looking towards Saturday against Brentford, I hope we get three points, I hope it's a decent performance. I hope we give the supporters something to shout about. We've got to go out and put on a performance for them from now until the end of the season and deal with everything that's happening off field as it's thrown at us.

'The support has been fantastic since I came here as a player and they've given me great support as a manager. I want them to remain behind the players and keep the vocal support going.

'And the players have to go out and play every game now like it's there last one.'
