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

RUFC - Scott 'three points most important thing'

Join The Vital Debate

Rotherham United Manager says that, although his team didn`t play well in the second half of the three-one win over Dagenham and Redbridge on Saturday at Don Valley, the most important thing is the three points.

Speaking to MillersPlayer Scott said, 'It was pleasing that we played well for nearly all the forty-five minutes of the first half but very frustrating when we go back out and don`t replicate that in the second half. Some people may think that I`m being a bit harsh but we can`t let our standards slip and we`ve got to expect more from what we do and that was the case for the second half.`

Asked why he thinks that his players didn`t do as well in the second half as the first, Scott replied, 'It`s like any company when everyone knows what everybody else`s job is and that`s why it works. But, in football, if people start doing their own thing then the cogs don`t fit together and it doesn`t move and that`s what happened. Some players were doing things we weren`t asking them to do and other players didn`t know what was going on with that and all of a sudden it starts breaking down.

'When people are making mistakes and things are going against them it`s even more important to keep things simple and do what you know you are good at and that`s what we`ve got to continue to do.`

Scott then went on to say that they`ve been practicing how to defend against set-pieces for the last six weeks and said, 'It doesn`t matter how much work you do it`s about players and whether players can mark the man that they`ve got. We know the culprits and if people are losing their markers it`s a problem because, certainly in League Two, it`s a major part of the game. It's important that we get back to being solid and difficult to beat and difficult to score against because we know that we`ve got enough quality to go and score goals.`
