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

RUFC - Scott 'I was proud of them'

Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott said that Tuesday`s half-time team talk was less of a talk and more of a shouting match.

The Millers had gone three down at Morecambe although had managed to pull one back with a Lewis Grabban penalty before half-time but Scott told Les Payne of The Star that he knew they were in trouble.

'There were lots of questions to be asked at half-time.` Scott said, 'Lots. And it wasn`t really a team talk, it was more ultimatums and there was some industrial language in there.

'I don`t like shouting and screaming but they got shouted and screamed at - a big dose of it. And once the point had been got across that I wasn`t happy with what was going on and they`ve to buck their ideas up, then you`ve to tell them how it needs sorting.

'And it could have been the pivotal moment of the season because we could have either crumbled or responded. Fortunately, they took it on board, what was required and they responded magnificently.

'It wasn`t about tactics it was about how you do it right. About heart and fire in the belly to make sure you do your job properly and don`t get dominated. League Two is tough and you`ve got to win personal battles. Do that and the quality we`ve got here will win games.

'In the end I was proud of them and how they came back against a tough team who have caused problems to lots of teams and will continue to do so. If we approach games like we did in the second half then we`ll be fine and ahead of such as Morecambe.`
