RUFC - Ronnie wants the fans to get behind them

RUFC - Ronnie wants the fans to get behind them

Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore, thinks that the game will be open tomorrow and that Crewe will come and have a go.

Speaking to MillersPlayer, Moore said, 'There is one thing about Crewe, you know you will get a good game of football. They are a fantastic footballing side with good quality players.

'They`ve got the pace of Zola and Donaldson up front and Grant wide you can see why they score goals. I know Calvin Zola, I had Calvin at Tranmere and he was always a promising player and he`s a threat. Donaldson has electric pace too and those two will be a big, big tester for our back four and if our two centre backs can cope with those two up front it will go a long way to us winning the game.

But, we know that this season they have had the tendency to leak them so I think it`s going to be an open game. It won`t be one of them where they sit on the edge of the box and have five at the back they will come here and have a go and our back four have to defend well.

'It`s going to be a tough game but we`ve got to get the bit between our teeth, get at them and set about them it will be a winnable game.

'It will be a party atmosphere for the fans tomorrow which is brilliant for them but we certainly don`t want that for the players. We want the crowd to get behind us vocally and the players on the pitch will have to light the blue torch paper and get the crowd going.

'I feel it`s been one of those seasons of 'if only` but, you look at the League now and there are eight or nine teams who would love to be where we are. And, two of those nine teams are going to Wembley so why not us? We`re as good as anybody and we don`t want anyone pinching our place.

'We`ve had three clean sheets but I`d like more goals and I`m hopeful we can finish the season with a few more. I want to finish on as many points as we can get and if we finish in fourth place it keeps that momentum going. But, what we`ve got to do is make sure we get in their first because although, at this present time we are five points clear, it doesn`t mean we are going to be in there. A point might do it, but to make sure the only thing we`ve got to do is go out and win.

'I mean, people are complaining about the season but we`ve won eleven games away from home and only lost four at home but we are still getting the moans and the groans. Yes, we should have had one of those automatic places but we haven`t and I can guarantee that the best way to get promoted is going through the play-offs and we have to make sure we can get this game won because if we do that we cement our play-off position. Then you`ve got Wembley to look forward to. But they are tough games and it`s about how the players react on the day because I think our players have been a bit nervous all season but, now, they are looking like they do believe they can go on and win this.`
