RUFC - What Scott told Alf on Saturday morning

Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott has revealed today what he said to top striker, Adam Le Fondre on their early morning Saturday walk before the game with Aldershot.

Speaking to The Star, Scott said, 'I told him that it was a clean slate for him, a blank piece of paper. I told him that whatever people said about him, whatever was said to him, whatever had been done to him, I don`t care.

'Regarding the game I told him that if he worked hard for an hour or so and do what we are asking him to do then he could come off if he couldn`t do any more and I`d be happy with that. I told him if he worked his socks off, made the runs I was asking him to make then we`d find him, get him on the ball and he`d have chances.

'Well, it happened and we saw the outcome. I`m not lying to players, I`m telling them the truth and the aim is getting them to do what I want them to do. And, I`m delighted by the fact that Alf has shown he can do it.

'He`s one I don`t know how to crack or work out and it`s going to take time, like it is with every player. I need to work out what does and doesn`t get them going. I just asked him for what I felt he could do and he was fantastic. He just didn`t work hard, his movement was clever with it and League Two defenders struggle when faced with that sort of movement that he was doing. He got his rewards and we got more chances because he was working for the team as much as anyone else. In fact, all eleven worked hard for each other and that`s what good teams do.`
