RUFC - Robins expects some bumps and bruises

Rotherham United manager, Mark Robins, has told the Yorkshire Evening Post that, although the clubs future looks to be on its way to being secured, he isn't getting carried away and he expects some bumps and bruises next season.

'Nothing is signed and sealed yet,' Robins said, ' and I think we have to be careful. But I am sure the take over will go through and once it does, let's hope it means a good future for the club.'

Robins will have to wait to see what budget the new owner will allow him and he insists if there hadn't been a transfer embargo after going into administration last season, his team could have been looking forward to life in League One now.

'I'm confident, without the tranfer embargo, we would have been challenging for automatic promotion. Last season was one to remember and I'm sure it will stand us in good stead. Thankfully, finishing with four wins lifted the doom and gloom somewhat.

'Now, like every team, we need to add to the squad but we have no money to go out and buy players so we will be using the free transfer market.'

The Millers look likely to be starting next season with minus fifteen points after not exiting administration via a Company Voluntary Arrangement.

With the -15 next season, we really have to win ALL our home games and I would think a high percentage of our away games as well.
