RUFC - Sharps wants to play at Wembley

RUFC - Sharps wants to play at Wembley

Rotherham United skipper, Ian Sharps says that he wants to get to Wembley.

'My life long ambition,' Sharps told David Beddows of The Advertiser, 'is to captain a promotion winning side at Wembley.'

It seems that the twenty-nine year old former Tranmere player still suffers nightmares from a play-off semi-final when he played for Rovers when he missed the penalty that would have taken them to the play-off final. So, to get there with the Millers would be time for him to put all that behind him and make amends.

Speaking about the Millers, Sharps said, 'I know we are capable of some fine performances. But I also know we are capable of some shocking ones too. But, hopefully, the mentality will be right going into the games with no-one hiding and everyone wanting the ball. If you make a mistake, you make a mistake but as long as you are trying to do the right thing at the right time then no one can argue.'

Everyone knows that once the play-offs start the form book can really go out of the window and Sharps said, 'It's whoever turns up on the day and performs. As the league table shows right now, we are the better team, but it's been proved that anyone can go out and beat anyone this year. But, I think we are the best team in it and no-one will want to play us and we've got to prove that in the two legs of the semi-final.'

Talking about the recent run of clean sheets, (four in the last five games), Sharps said, 'I think it might be something to do with the fact that we've had the same back four and goalkeeper for a while.

'We are happy how we are playing defence wise. The last game against Crewe, their players were a bit of a handful so, as defenders, we were made up to do well against them.

Talking about the severe rainstorm during the second half of last weeks game at Don Valley, which, at one bit looked like it might mean an abandoment of the game, Sharps said, 'At the end where the U2 stage was, the rain just wouldn't drain away but fair play to the referee (Russell Booth) for letting the game finish.'
