RUFC - Robins 'I overreacted on Tuesday'

Rotherham United Manager, Mark Robins has told Radio Sheffield that he thinks he overreacted after his team lost to Darlington on Tuesday night,

'We forget the psychological barrier we've overcome,' Robins said. 'I don't think either side played well but I expected more from us and it was disappointing. We overcome one barrier and there's another comes in it's place. Expectations go up and rightly so but we have to make sure that everyone's feet are on the floor and that we are doing the right things. We've not changed our targets but people's perceptions have changed and that's understandable.

'Leeds did unbelievable things last season and got into the play-offs but they also had money to spend and could go out and get quality players in. We have three to four thousand crowds and we aren't in the same catergory as Leeds. But we are certainly working towards climbing the table.'

On to tomorrow's game at home to leaders Wycombe, Robins said, 'Ian Sharps has served his suspension and we missed him on Tuesday night. To have him back will be a big boost for us.'

Hear what you're saying Mark but I hope you've given them a rocket up their backsides for tomorrow

Good to have Sharps back, but one man shouldn't make a team.

Everyone makes gaffs, nice to see someone admitting it.
