RUFC - Robins 'conceding too many goals'

Rotherham United lost in the first round of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy last night to League One side Huddersfield Town and Manager, Mark Robins says that his side looked a 'little flat footed' at times.

Speaking to the Official Site, Robins said, 'We had to shuffle things around tonight and we huffed and puffed looking for a second goal but just couldn't find it. We were a little flat footed at times but I thought we played some decent stuff too.'

There were a few changes to the side that beat Macclesfield at the weekend, one being Kevin Ellison for the injured Tom Pope and his Manager said, 'Kevin has come in, worked hard and, when he moved onto the left, started to come into the game.

'We are conceding too many goals at the moment and giving the other team chances, which isn't like us. We will have to improve for Saturday against Chesterfield because they will be very tough opponents and they've had some shooting practice against Burton tonight (Chesterfield beat Burton 5-1 at the Pirelli Stadium).'

Micky Cummins had to be replaced in the first half last night as he had a shoulder problem and Paul Warne was injured in the warm-up. Tom Pope will be out for around three weeks with a foot injury and Robins said, 'We had some encouraging news about Tom from the physio and I hope to have him back in a couple of weeks. Hopefully we will have one or two players back on Thursday but the situation isn't ideal because we want to be at full strength on Saturday against Chesterfield because it's a massive game for us.'

There was some good news last night when Drewe Broughton, who has been out since breaking a toe in pre-season, came off the subs bench for the final minutes of the game.
