RUFC - Lids wants more of the same
Rotherham United Caretaker Manager, Andy Liddell says that their next opponents, Shrewsbury, are up there for a reason.
Speaking to Radio Sheffield Lids said that Shrewsbury are 'a good team, strong, organised with some good players. They've got a fantastic manager too because he's been in the game for years. They know what they are doing and it will be a tough game, but it will be a tough game for them as well because we're also a good team.
'They've got Ian Sharps who is a great fellow and did a fantastic job for Rotherham and he's a good player./ He'll get a good reception from the fans and from the players because everyone liked him and he was a really, really good captain and he's a top guy. But they've got good players all over. They've had a few quid to spend and have a big budget and they've recruited well.'
The Millers played Shrewsbury at the Greenhous Meadow back in September and lost to a Lionel Ashworth goal in the first five minutes and Lids said, 'If we play like we did there and lose one-nil I've no problem at all with that. In the second half it was like their 'keeper had seven arms because it was one way traffic and he was saving from all over. The fans gave the players a standing ovation that day and they'd got beaten one-nil but that's what the fans want to see . And, I'd take the same committed performance that we had on Friday.
'The fans will respond to what they see on the pitch and if they see total commitment, endeavour and hard work off Rotherham then they'll get behind them. They want to see them lads out there putting a right shift in, which they got on Friday and I'm hoping they'll get that tonight. If they don't get it then the players know the consequences and they'll come and sit at the side of me.'
Don't forget the game this evening kicks off at 7.45pm - so get down to Don Valley and give the lads a shout
