'If It's Football, It's Vital'

RUFC - Robins Challenge to Players

Rotherham United Manager, Mark Robins, has challenged his players to 'do it again' in the next two games.

After, once again, beating a team in a higher division than themselves, in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy, the Millers take on Aldershot in the FA Cup on Saturday and then Stoke City in the Carling Cup on Tuesday. The Millers have nine or ten matches (depending on a replay in the FA Cup) in twenty-nine days but Robins brushes off this gruelling schedule as a sign of success saying that he is using the Cup games to build momentum and confidence in the team.

Speaking to The Advertiser, Robins said, 'The FA Cup is a massive tournament and the biggest of it's kind in the world. I won it in 1990 with Manchester United and it was an unbelievable experience. We've had a poor record in it in previous years and so we really want to do well this year. Aldershot are an organised team and have an honest bunch of players and we know it's going to be difficult. But, all we can do is go there and put on a performance. We have to maintain the standards we got to against Leicester.

'I don't really want to talk too much about Stoke until we've got Aldershot out of the way, but we'll go there, enjoy it and relish the chance to test ourselves agaisnt a team in the top-flight. There's no doubt that it will be a good night out for the club and our supporters.'
