RUFC - Robins 'Play for Pride'

RUFC - Robins 'Play for Pride'

Rotherham United manager, Mark Robins wants his team to go out and play for pride in the remaining four games of the season as well as getting as many points as possible.

Speaking to RotherFM he thought the game on Saturday, against Brentford, was a scrappy game but a better performance than of late and he also said that the atomosphere around the training ground had been better this week.

'I want us to go out, get as many points as possible, put on a positive performance with some decent passing and decent movement and I want the players to remember what they came into football for and go out and enjoy playing.

'I want to see more from the front players. I think Mark Hudson is playing very very well at the moment and that young Jamie Green is getting better with each game.

'I want to get back to winning ways, get the ball and pass it but make the right option. And I want my strikers to hold the ball better. We've got to turn things round and impose ourselves on a game again.

'The supporters are showing a lot of anxiety and it's being transmitted to the pitch. We've got to stick together to get through this and once we've done that it will make us stronger. I think there are sure signs that we are coming through this black spell that's round the club.

'It's tough times and I've been talking to the Administrator and he's been keeping me abreast of the situation. But, this week I've been getting on with the team preperation and the Administrator has to get on with his job of getting the club sold and making sure we have a club to play for.'

Talking about the sickness virus that's been through the team he said, 'Ian Ross managed to play half of the reserve game on Wednesday but Jamie Yates wasn't quite ready for that, though he's been back training for a couple of days but looks a bit short at the moment.'

Speaking about the Grimsby game he said, 'They beat us in the Johnsons Paint Trophy on penalties and in the league game here I think we had a half each but I think we deserved three points. Alan Buckley's teams always pass the ball well and he is a good and experienced manager. We've got to go there and get the ball and pass it.

'I want the fans to come and support the team though this difficult time and stick together and we can look forward to something a bit brighter in the future.'
