RUFC - Scott 'only have to worry about ourselves'

RUFC - Scott 'only have to worry about ourselves'

Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott has made it clear that he is building a team to win League Two this season. But, he does concede that he expects it to be a tougher league than last season.

Speaking to Ian Appleyard of The Yorkshire Post recently, Scott said,` You are probably looking at around ten to twelve sides who are more than capable of challenging, never mind just finishing in the top three.

'AFC Wimbledon have spent more than anyone and have been installed as favourites. They have a huge budget and are collecting centre-forwards. Swindon, under Paolo Di Canio, have brought in a lot of foreigners - but that can go one of two ways. Paul Buckle at Bristol Rovers knows the league inside out and has a strong budget, we don`t know about Plymouth financially, and you count out Dagenham at your peril. Accrington have experience of the league, Micky Adams had Port Vale top of the league before leaving for Sheffield United, and now he`s back - and the list goes on.

'But, we only have to worry about ourselves and, if we do that, then more people will be worried about us than we are about them.`

Personally, I can see one of the big threats being Crawley - the Chairman there has put a lot of money into the club and, coming up from non-league, they really have nothing to lose. But, I do think Scott is right saying 'we only have to think of ourselves`. And, I`ve got a good feeling about his season (and I don`t very often say that!)
