RUFC - Hudson 'heads go down too early'

Rotherham United haven't scored a goal in the last three games and midfielder, Mark Hudson, thinks he knows why.

'I think when we go one down our heads go down too early,' he told The Advertiser. 'We don't seem to be able to come back from a goal down. We need to have strong minds and be strong as a team. That's what the manager wants.'

The Millers have lost the last three away games - Scunthorpe in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy and Grimsby and Darlington in the League - without managing to hit the net.

Speaking about the game at Grimsby, where the scoreline was 3-0, Hudson carried on, 'Our plan was to contain them in the first half but we were disappointed to go in at 0-0 as we were the better side. They must have had a rollicking at half-time because when the second half started it seemed to be end-to-end and that's not what we wanted, we wanted to contain them. Jason Taylor had a great chance before they scored and had that gone in it might have been a different game.'

Looking at the teams in the bottom end of the table, Hudson said, 'There's life in the bottom of the league. Everyone there is fighting for their lives.'

I actually think we've been the best team in all the first halves - but you have to be the best team in the second half too
