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

RUFC - Raynes 'we've stopped the rot'

Rotherham United centre-half, Michael Raynes was pleased with the improvement of the defence on Saturday and thinks it is a step forward.

Speaking to MillersPlayer after the one-all draw with Shrewsbury Town on Saturday, the twenty four year old said, 'We've stopped the rot.

'I think we dominated the first half but took our foot off the ball a little bit in the second but we've put a smile back on our faces and put a smile back on the fans faces too and we wanted to get it right for them today.

'I don't think I've ever been as down in football as I have the last couple of weeks. We take the responsibility home with us and it's been really depressing and we've been working our arses off in training. I thought we dealt with them rather well today although they got a scruffy goal but I think it's a positive step forward and a big pick-me up.

It doesn't look too good at the minute but one or two wins and it changes just like that. Football is mental but the six games without a win is put to bed now, it's done and we go onto Tuesday which will be a very tough game against Morecambe but we are going full of optimism.

'I thought Johnny (Mullins) was outstanding today and have nothing but praise for the boy from what he's put his body through to get back to his full self and I love playing with him. And we've got Jon Harley coming in at left back whose experience is going to help us and I thought Tongey (Dale Tonge) was outstanding as well today. Grabbs (Lewis Grabban) was outstanding today, probably the best I've seen him since I've been here.

'We aren't going to panic. We know we've got the quality here. I'm loving being here and enjoying playing for this club. I've bought a house up here now and so I'm finally settled. The last couple of years my life and career have been in turmoil but I'm starting to find a home here and enjoying myself. Win games and keep clean sheets and I'll be over the moon.
