RUFC - Sharps, 'need to go and perform'

Rotherham United skipper, Ian Sharps has told The Advertiser that, on Sunday, the team need to play the game and not the occasion.

'I've spoken to lads who have played there in the past,' the tall defender said, 'and they say that after half-an-hour your legs have gone because you can get so emotionally caught up in the atmosphere. But, we've not got to do that. We've got to last ninety minutes and play the game.

'Motivation won't be a problem, the main thing will be keeping people's feet on the floor.

'First and foremost we need to make sure we go out on Sunday and perform to the best of our ability.'

Sharpsy can't wait to lead the team out at Wembley although he says it will be better to go and pick up the trophy at the end of the game. 'I'd love to win there,' he said, 'but it's not really about me. It's about the team going there and performing and winning.

'Training's been good this week and the lads have been buzzing but now it all comes down to ninety - or one hundred and twenty - minutes.'
