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

RUFC - Scott 'hard to leave Le Fondre out'

Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott said that it's up to top striker, Adam Le Fondre, and everyone else not in the side at the moment, to prove that they should be

Speaking to Radio Sheffield, Andy said, 'I didn't want to come in after two days and change things round but it was difficult leaving Le Fondre on the bench but that's my job and what I'm paid for. It's up to me to maximise what he can do and I believe I can make him better than he.

'It's not always about scoring goals, it's about team play and work rate and top strikers are team players as well and, at this level, it's important you have that. He works hard in training and he's told me he wants to do it and if he's capable of doing it then I'm sure it won't be long before he's back in the side.

'It's up to everyone who isn't in the side to prove us wrong and work hard and graft and make it impossible to be left out. The mentality and fitness has to be right and we've got some good players who dominated the game against Hereford on Saturday. If the goalscorers aren't scoring goals then we have to work out why they aren't scoring. There's plenty of options up front we just have to give them ammunition to score goals.

'There's certain areas I'm looking like decisions in the box and final third. There's the desire and ambition to win games but that probably overrides the calmness you need and we've got to be calm on the ball and use it to better effect. We're working on my ideas in training and I'm not expecting it to happen straight away but to creep into our games.'

Asked about injuries, Andy said, 'There's only Johnny Mullins out. Ian Thomas-Moore is back in training and Andy Warrington could be involved on Friday but we need to look at his reactions in training. But Jamie (Annerson) has done very well. He commands his box well, talks to his back four well for a young lad and is organised and concentrates well.'
