Rotherham United take on Chesterfield tomorrow at Don Valley and assistant manager, John Breckin told the Official Site that local derbies are what football is all about.
'We were disappointed how we lost at Chesterfield earlier in the season to a goal in the last minute,' Breckin said, 'and, although we had a bit of a blip on Tuesday, the lads are full of confidence. Chesterfield have one eye on the play-off's and it's up to us to stop that and get three more points towards safety.'
Speaking about the loss to Aldershot on Tuesday night, Breckin carried on, 'We created enough chances but we just didn't put them away. We played well enough and that was the only missing factor. The defence let us down a little bit and it was disappointing to let in two goals from set play because we've done well with that all season. I don't think we are safe yet, although the finishing line is getting nearer but we want to put as many points on the board as we can. We just tell the lads to go out and enjoy it because we've nothing to fear in this league. I think another three wins will see us safe but you've only got to go on a bad run and the teams below start to creep up on you. So, until it's mathematically certain, I won't be counting any chickens.
'We're starting to look at next season now. The youngsters have done well and they are ones for the future but you have to have a good blend and mixture and there's one or two names we are looking to recruit in the close season.' When asked if Jamie Clarke would be one of them, he replied, 'If Jamie keeps performing like he has done and scoring goals then he probably has a future here. His greatest asset is his blistering pace which is a wonderful asset to have.'
