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

RUFC - Scott 'hates League Two'

Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott firmly believes that his team is good enough to win this league, even though most bookies seem to think we will end up in the play-offs.

Scott said, 'I didn`t come here to sit in League Two. I don`t like League Two - I like League One.`

But, then again, you wouldn`t really expect the manager of your team to say anything less would you? The thing is, I do believe him. I`ve been very impressed with Andy Scott since he came to the Millers - I might not always have agreed with the things he`s done - but I do believe what he says.

Speaking to The Advertiser Scott said, 'I`ve told the lads not to even think of second, third, fourth, fifth…. - think about winning it. And, I don`t think I`ve had a team before who are capable of doing that. I had a fantastic group of players and staff at Brentford, but we over-achieved and won the league - we did it because we believed in ourselves.

'If we get this group to believe in themselves then there is no reason we shouldn`t win it. With the pressure and expectations we`ll be going into games not happy with a point but wanting to win. Teams may come and change the way they play against us and it`s up to us to break them down and win games. That`s what I expect and what I quite like. I`d rather have to set teams up to go and win and not to go and not lose.

'We have to be able to compete first, make it difficult for other teams and mix up our game as well and the style of play will be markedly different from last year due to the quality we have got.

'I`m responsible for this football club and everything that goes on in it comes back to me. If something goes wrong then I feel personally responsible and want to do something about it.

'I want to win and the pressure is there to win all the time. Even if I wasn`t at a club that wasn`t expected to win, I`d still want to win. There`s pressure every single day but if you don`t want pressure then you shouldn`t be a football manager.

'I`m at a good football club with a fantastic Chairman and a board that back me all the way and it promises to be a great ride this season.

'Please, get behind us.`
