RUFC - Scott wants high standards

RUFC - Scott wants high standards

Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott says he has several ideas regarding his backroom staff at the club.

Speaking to MillersPlayer, Andy said, 'I know both Paul (Warne) and Andy (Liddell) from playing with and against them and they've clearly stepped into the breach and have worked as hard as they can and I'll be looking to work with them as closely as possible. I've had a long good chat with Paul and Andy and a very open and frank discussion about every aspect of the football club.

'I've come in first and foremost to try and win as many games as possible to get us into the play offs and, even if that doesn't happen, we still want to win every game because I'll be assessing every player and every member of staff to make sure I've got the right people around me for next year. And, if we don't get into the play offs this year we can skip them next year and get automatic promotion.

'Saying that, I don't want there to be any pressure on anyone. You can't play if you aren't enjoying it and I want to make it a good, enjoyable atmosphere and a good place to come and work and somewhere they want to enjoy coming to every morning. If we get that atmosphere we're halfway there with just a few bits and pieces we need to work on with the team but if you're successful then you're enjoying it and if you're enjoying it you're successful. That's the combination you need and that's the combination I'll be working for.

'The fans want to see hard work and they want to see everyone giving one hundred per cent for the shirt and I've built my sides around that and that's how I work and the players will learn to take that on board and take it into every game.

'I think this is why Tony (Stewart) has brought me in so that Rotherham United can establish themselves going into a new stadium in the season after next and we want to make sure we are a football club that goes on and goes higher rather than being static. We want to set ourselves high standards and keep to those and be a pioneer in what we do.'

Going onto Saturday and the preparation needed, Andy said, 'The reports I've had are that the performance was pretty good against Cheltenham and it was a mistake that led to the goal. We have to look at the injury situation on who's fit and available. I'll be looking very closely at how the players work and I want to make sure we go out there and hopefully have a response the same as they did when Paul and Andy took over.'
