RUFC - Sharps 'We Are NOT Safe Yet'

RUFC - Sharps 'We Are NOT Safe Yet'

Rotherham United defender, and acting skipper, Ian Sharps, has sent out a warning to the optimists who are already thinking that the Millers are free from relegation. A couple of weeks ago he Millers were sixteen points above Bournemouth in next to bottom place. That has now been cut to twelve points and once again the South Yorkshire team are looking over their shoulders.

'Anyone who says we are safe from relegation are naive' Sharps told The Advertiser this week. 'We only have to lose four and Bournemouth win four and it will get difficult - and in this league that could happen. With sixty points still to play for, it means even Luton can get to sixty. I look at every game we play and think we can win but we still have work to do.'

Speaking about the one-nil loss at Darlington mid-week, Sharps said, 'We dominated from start to finish. They scored a lucky goal and maybe we could have done better. But it was the missed chances that cost us the game. We didn't lose because of a lack of effort but there was a lack of skill and the quality of the balls into the box wasn't good enough. Darlington sat deep and we couldn't break them down. The first goal in these games is always going to be important and we had chances, but, as the gaffer says, you need to take them. Our mentality was spot on and we won most of the areas all over the pitch but it just wasn't our day.

'The lads stick the ball in the net in training it's just that it doesn't always fall for you in a match. You've just got to get in the box and get on the end of the chances and not hide. We aren't a bad team and we didn't deserve to lose on Tuesday. But, there have been other games we've won this season and not deserved to and when it happens the other way you have to take it on the chin and pick yourself up for the next game.'
