RUFC - Millers having to change back four again

Join The Vital Debate

Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott is looking like he may have to change his back four again for the visit to Hereford, with on loan defender, Guy Branston ended up on crutches after hobbling of the pitch last Saturday at Shrewsbury.

Speaking to MillersPlayer Scott said about Guy, 'He's got some sort of strain in the foot. He had a scan yesterday and it may be a week or a little bit longer that he's out. We don't really know yet.'

With both Troy Brown and Michael Raynes playing the full Reserve game against Middlesbrough on Monday afternoon, Scott has two options there and he said, 'The first seventy-five minutes of that game were pretty good. It was two goalkeeping mistakes that led to their goals when we were on top. And it was a poor goal we conceded with one of their first attacks and it changed the game. But that's typical of the way this club has gone - we do well and silly mistakes when people aren't concentrating and it changes the whole outcome of the game. It's alarming that we've got that mentality through the squad and it's frustrating that it keeps on happening time and time again.

'But Troy and Raynsey got through ninety minutes which is good and they played OK and with Guy being out it means there are more opportunities for people.'

Saying he couldn't remember, in his managerial career, a time when he'd had to make so many changes to a back four, Scott said, 'The key to a good side is keeping a steady side. But, with injuries, suspensions and what-have-you, it's difficult to get some continuity.

'The front six or sort of picking themselves at the moment with the way they are playing but our back four keeps changing, which is a worry. The sooner we can deal with that the better.'
