'If It's Football, It's Vital'

RUFC - Lidds will make changes

Rotherham United Caretaker Manager, Andy Liddell told MillersPlayer that, after the defeat on Saturday to Morecambe, the players had to pick themselves up and get on with it.

'All professional footballers are resilient,' Lidds said. 'There's another game to play and they've got to get on with it.'

Lids went onto talk about the players being out of contract and said, 'it's all up in the air at the moment because we don't have a permanent manager here. But they all need to perform and impress not only the the Rotherham people who are watching but the other people who are watching too.'

Apart from Warrington, the Millers have two other main injuries in Ryan Cresswell and Ian Thomas-Moore. 'Ryan should train today.' Lidds said this morning, 'but I'm not sure about Ian although I'm hoping they can both train.'

Asked if he was going to make any changes, he replied, 'I don't know. After the team played so poorly in the second half as Rotherham did on Saturday and as lacklustre, I think the players can expect change and they probably know it's coming. It's just mine and Paul's job to work out who's the best team for the game at Cheltenham because sometimes it's not the best players who make the best team and sometimes it is. It's just about getting that mix right and we've got to try and do that. But we can't have another second half performance like we did against Morecambe because it's unacceptable.

'If they are fit and they are training hard then every player will be considered. The reserve players didn't really do themselves any justice when they got beat six-one the other night. Me and Paul watched it and, to say the least, it was annoying. But, we haven't got that big a squad, we've got a couple of injuries and we're going to need players and we need them to be firing on all cylinders when they get in the team.'
