RUFC - Lids reflects on Tuesday night

RUFC - Lids reflects on Tuesday night

Rotherham United Caretaker Manager, Andy Liddell says that him, Paul Warne, Andy Dibble and Nicky Eaden are pleased with what the players have been doing in training in his week as boss of the club.

Speaking to MillersPlayer, after having time to watch Tuesday nights game on DVD and reflect on it, Lidds said, 'We played quite well in spells, worked hard but we made a few mistakes and Shrewsbury capitalised on those mistakes. We struggled to run through the sand on the pitch a little bit in the second half and we looked a little bit leggy but commitment wise we were fantastic.'

Asked if there was anything to be done about the pitch at this stage of the season, Lidds suggested a few land mines might not go amiss! 'Let's make no bones about it, it's a bad pitch. But, it is what it is and we can't do anything about it. We'll just have to get on with it.

'Obviously, we didn't win the other night but you can't guarantee results. All you can try and guarantee is commitment, performances and hard work. And, anyone who's seen Rotherham in the last two games and anyone who's been at training has seen that they are hard working lads who want to be successful in their career. There's not just the Chairman, the fans and the staff who want it you've got to remember that the players want to achieve promotion in their careers because it's a brilliant thing to have on your CV. And I'm not thinking about putting it on mine or Paul's, I really want the players to do it because I know how fantastic it is and so they can reflect on it when their careers are over and think 'I did something and got promoted with this and got promoted with that. There's a few here who have already had it with different clubs but I know they are totally committed because they want to get it here'

Asked about any changes he had made to training, Lidds said, 'When new people come in there's a natural lift to the players sometimes. We haven't changed much but we've just tried to bring some confidence and positivity to them. You shouldn't have any fear when you are playing football, it's the best job in the world, I mean, you are getting paid to kick a ball around. Just train hard and play hard and what comes will come and we'll take it. We've told them we'll take whatever they give as long as they are committed. They'll make mistakes because they're human beings, not robots, and when they make mistakes you've got to get behind them and try to make sure they don't make them again. The problem comes when you start making repeated mistakes but we haven't seen that yet.'
