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

RUFC - Scott is here to win

Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott is not going to settle for second best.

After the disappointing loss last weekend to Southend at Don Valley, Scott told The Star, 'Myself and my staff want to make sure that people don`t get away with second best because I`m not here to be second best, I`m here to win.

'I have always been a manager whose teams are organised, who makes them hard to beat, but I was disappointed and frustrated because we work on a lot things defensively

'We have just lost our second game in ten. You don`t become a bad group overnight but you have to nip it in the bud quickly. If that means there are changes to be made then so be it. Maybe some players have had too much credit for what they can do rather than what they can`t do. Certainly if they continually do the same things then it`s not going to be right for the football club.

'We have some good players here. But we do need to be more ruthless, harder to beat. And there`s no point having good players if they`re not going to graft, work and win headers. People in this area want to see people working hard and grafting for each other. They did not get their moneys worth and I do not accept that.'

Scott watched the Reserve team beat Hull City on Monday and had Dale Tonge at left back and Troy Brown at right back. Other players who have been in the first team who played were Ben Pringle (who scored a goal), Mark Bradley, Luke Foster, Paul Warne and Ollie Banks. Johnny Mullins, who played for the last fifteen minutes on Saturday, for his first taste of first team football since a knee injury in April, didn't feature in the game.
