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

RUFC - Robins Determined

Rotherham United manager, Mark Robins, is no doubt feeling the strain as doom and gloom still surround the club, but he is determined to work through that and hopes there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Speaking to The Advertiser, he said, 'Like other members of staff I am only receiving a portion of my wages but we have been told there are people interested in taking over the club in and in the meantime we are trying to keep everyone's spirits up. But, who motivates the motivator?'

After losing Adrian Pettigrew, who went back to Chelsea, the squad is down to the bare bones and Robins said, 'Chelsea were paying his wages but he was staying in a hotel up here and that was a factor. It was a cost issue and although he hadn't been a regular it means we have lost his services.'

Speaking about the boo boys on Saturday, he said, 'I was disappointed with the reaction of the supporters as things aren't great around here at the moment but they are entitled to say what they think. They were quiet but gave me stick for one or two decisions I made, but that doesn't bother me and I think we created more chances than in the rest of the game.

'It's a difficult place to be at the moment - working for no money and long hours. It's a thankless job but I'll get on with it.'
