RUFC - Scott v Scott

Rotherham United's Andy Scott will be up against his brother, Rob Scott as they both watch their respective sides from the bench for this pre-season friendly tomorrow.

Andy joined the Millers as Manager in April this year after being sacked from Brentford two months earlier whilst Rob, along with Paul Hurst, became joint-Manager of the Mariners in March, after leaving Boston United.

Both Rob and Hursty are well know to Millers fans, both being ex-players - Rob playing from 1998 - 2005 and Hursty from 1993 to 2008 and then doing various other jobs for the Millers.

Speaking prior to the game to This is Grimsby, Rob said, 'We are both competitive and will want to win although it's more about what happens on the pitch and not about the pair of us.' While, Andy, speaking to MillersPlayer, said, 'It'll be interesting because it's the first time I've been against my brother as a manager.'

'It's an idea game for us both and they will be doing the same as us, playing two teams of eleven, although they've got a bigger squad than us,' Andy carried on. 'They went back a week after us so have done things a bit different in training but it's important that we get out of it what we want to get out of it for the club, although it's a little bit different when your brother is the opposition manager.'

Asked if there would be any banter between the two during the match, Andy said, 'Not really, I'll be concentrating on the game.'

Rob, mostly remembered by the Millers for his famous long-throw ins (and, dare we mention a certain own goal!), said, 'The main thing for us will to give as many a run out as possible and we will be trying different personnel and formations. First and foremost it's a fitness exercise and people shouldn't read too much into the result or who plays and who doesn't. We don't know what the substitution situation is yet but hopefully the referee will be flexible and we can use as many players as possible

'From the club's perspective it's a chance to get a few people in to see the new players and hopefully it will be a decent crowd and may entice a few in who haven't been for a while. '
