RUFC - Scott putting fun back into training

RUFC - Scott putting fun back into training

Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott is trying to put the last few games behind him and get the players to put into practice what they do, day-in, day-out, in training.

Scott says they have been trying to lighten the mood in training this week and speaking to MillersPlayer he said, 'In fairness to the players they work very hard in training. But, we are finding it difficult to replicate wheat we do in training in games. At the moment they are making life a little bit harder than they need too, so, this week, we've lightened the mood a little.

'Having the squad we've got and the changes in personnel during the summer, and, although the squad seemed to be clicking well, there are maybe still areas we need to improve on. So, we are making training more fun for them while still getting the quality of work out of them. They are honest boys who are desperate to do well who hate losing. We want to change things around and make sure we get back to where we were and there is no reason why we can't do that. They are good players who are just a bit low on confidence at the moment.

'If I wasn't getting one hundred per cent effort out of the lads then I'd be concerned but they are fantastic. We are looking a little bit nervy and looking like we don't want to make mistakes and looking a little bit inhibitive, whereas, at the beginning of the season, we were free flowing and attacking. Sometimes you can think about things too much when there's no reason to do that. We all want results and sometimes you can put too much pressure on yourself and read too much into things and then you start getting fatigued mentally and then you're in trouble, you make a mistake and it gets even worse.

'We aren't taking the situation lightly but we are trying to improve the general individual mood of people while giving encouragement and positivity because I think that's the way to go. We just need something to fall for us, something to happen that will give us that little bit of a spark and a boost and there'll be no looking back from there.

'It's a fantastic job to be in and every fan would love to be in their place and be on that pitch, Sometimes, I think, you lose sight of the fact that it's a great job to be in and that it's something you should enjoy and make the most of, rather than worrying about things and being concerned about what's going to go wrong. It's a short career and you should enjoy every second of it because you don't know when it's going to end.'

I think the players have been looking on edge too and frightened of making mistakes
