Rotherham United manager, Mark Robins, says it has been difficult to try and manage his football team in the last few months as he's had his hands tied behind his back. But, he said, the win at Grimsby last week was very important.
Speaking to RotherFM he said, 'After everything we've been through lately I think we climbed a hill to win last Saturday and winning gives you confidence. I mean we were challenging for a top spot and then had it snatched away from us and I think it was a big result for us at Grimsby and it lifted some of the doom and gloom that's been round the place. They are a good footballing side and we restricted them and I don't think they had a shot on target.
'In my press last week I was trying to get a positive angle on things and trying to lift the players. Football is about getting results and winning matches. We have to take what's happened on the chin and come away from it stronger and build on what we've got.
'A lot has happened this season and we are keeping our fingers crossed that the powers who be will resolve it. But, we have to concentrate on the football and it's been difficult at times to do that. We're at the stage where it's time to be looking towards next season and we've felt like we have been in limbo a bit at the moment but we've got to get on with it and let's hope we come through it stronger.'
Talking about today's game with Dagenham and Redbridge, the manager said, 'They are a big physical side who are fighting for their lives at the bottom. They will be chasing every ball and challenging for everything. If we think they will be an easy side to beat then we are in for a defeat. We have to go out to win and make sure we are on the top of our game.'
