RUFC - Robins 'we're going for it'

Rotherham United take on Scunthorpe tomorrow in the first leg of the area final of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy and the Millers Manager says they are going with the aim of winning.

Speaking to the Football League's Official Site, Mark Robins said, 'We've done ever so well to get this far. We beat Leeds who were the favourites and after that we beat the newly installed favourties. Then we beat a tough Darlington side on penalties. We've been the underdogs in every round and it will be the same tomorrow night against Scunthorpe. They are not only a very good side but are also local rivals. We go there first and aim to make sure we are still at the races come the second leg. It's a big ask to beat Scunthorpe but it's not every year you get the chance to play at Wembley and that's a big, big prize - it's the holy grail for players and not many get to play there. So, we will be going for it tomorrow night and I'm sure we will give a good account of ourselves over the two legs.'
