RUFC - Robins Proud of the Millers

Rotherham United became the first team to win twenty games in League Two last Saturday, and, but for the Football League's way of handling off-field situations, would have been flying high in the top three.

Unitl the day before the season began, Rotherham United didn't even know if they'd even begin this season and Manager, Mark Robins says, 'We have got so much from a season that promised so little.'

Speaking to David Beddows of The Advertiser, the gaffer went on to say, 'Less than a year ago we had no ground, no training facilities and no offices. And now, the supporters have had something to shout and dream about with the cup wins and getting so close to Wembley in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.

'There's a lot of talk about how well Luton and Bournemouth have done after starting on minus points but no mention of Rotherham. I take that as a back-handed compliment because people have forgotten how well we've performed.

'Everyone at the club has been magnificent under really difficult circumstances and, you know, we are eight points off the play-off places. We have four games to play and we need to win them all ... and hope.'
