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

RUFC - Sharps 'got to keep plugging away'

Rotherham United defender, Ian Sharps, admits to feeling drained after all the games he has been playing recently.

'It's the longest run of Saturday - Tuesday games I've ever had in my life,' the twenty-eight year old told The Advertiser. 'We aren't looking for excuses but mentally it's hard to get up for games. Apart from training, it's up to the individual to get themselves prepared for a match and through all this, we have to remember that we are a good team and good players. At both the Aldershot and Gillingham games we started well but once they scored we lost our shape and in the second half we just weren't in it. People have off days but if a couple have off days together then you struggle.

'We're fourth from bottom, still in a relegation battle and need points quickly. We know we're better than the teams above us but we've got to prove it. I expect us to pick points up over the next ten games but I don't think you can predict when we'll catch the teams above us.

'We've got to keep plugging away, regroup and go again.'
