RUFC - Robins 'looking to a bright future'

RUFC - Robins 'looking to a bright future'

Sky Sports seemed to have 'discovered' the Millers as, once again, Manager, Mark Robins, appeared on a special Sky Sports Carling Cup programme this evening.

Mark Robins gave his verdict on the Cup games this week and also spoke about the Millers. He said he was delighted with the cup run which 'breeds confidence,' and went on to say 'I can't speak highly enough of the character of the team. We want to go as far as we can in the competition and the players and supporters deserve to get a big premiership side in the next round. But, of course, whoever we get, we get. I am delighted for the players who scored against Southampton but I am pleased for all of the players. Although all three Carling Cup games have been against Championship sides, they have all been different. To get a 2-2 and win on penalties at Hillsborough, with it being a local derby, is always a special night. I think psychology plays a big part of the game and when big teams play the teams in the lower leagues they don't always know what to expect. And, the teams at the lower end of the leagues are getting better each season. Perhaps it's because of the foreign players coming into the game and other good players can't get into the sides and they are filtering down to the lower leagues.'

The manager went onto talk about the next game and said, 'the next game is always the biggest. We go to Dagenham and Redbridge and they have a wiley manager in John Still. It's going to be a tough test for us but I hope it will be a tough test for them as well. We could get to zero points on Saturday and that represents a good start to the season for us.

'I'm enjoying my job and the Chairman is superb. He's new to the job and he's got his plan and with that plan we will succeed. Through no fault of their own, the players went through a bad time last season and had a lot to put up with. We've added to the squad this year and we are moving forward. We are looking to a bright future.'

Robins was asked, if he had the choice, would he rather get to the Carling Cup Final or win promotion, 'Promotion, every time,' he answered.
