Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott says that the game on Saturday against Gillingham, at Don Valley, will be the toughest yet.

Speaking to MillersPlayer, with both teams on ten points, Scott said, 'Hopefully last week was just a blip. We`ve viewed the DVD on last weekend`s game and have broken it down into the areas where we need to improve. But, first, and foremost, the intensity needs to be there and we need to show more urgency both on and off the ball.

'To come back twice against Barnet was a big plus for us and it showed a lot of character. We`ve got a good team spirit and a good group here and we need to build on that and use the quality we`ve got in the squad as well.

'Everyone has got to work hard, including the ones who are in the side because they have to play well to keep their shirt. Mark Bradley came in last weekend and did a decent job for us. He`s a good lad and works hard and doesn`t cause any trouble and wants to improve.

'I think Marcus Marshall has developed very well at right-back and defensively he handled a tricky left-winger very well. He`s still learning in that position but what he gives us is another option. He likes to get forward and he`s got pace and carries the ball well and retains possession very well.`

Talking about the reserves who lost to Bradford City reserves on Monday afternoon, Scott said, 'I wasn`t happy with some of the things we did in the reserves. It`s important that we work as a group throughout the system here and the first team, reserves and youth team have to know what standards we expect to be met. We had some good spells, scored a good goal and created some excellent opportunities that we didn`t take but defensively we made some poor errors and in midfield, when we started to tire, we were giving the ball away cheaply which, unfortunately, caused us to lose the game. But we should learn from that.`
