RUFC - Scott on Raynes, Wood and Marshall

RUFC - Scott on Raynes, Wood and Marshall

Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott had a few things to say about some of his players yesterday.

Speaking about Michael Raynes who played ninety minutes, Scott said, 'It's taken him a while to get back his fitness and also his confidence because when you get a whack and you don't feel one hundred per cent, it's difficult mentally to cope.

'He's played a game and a half now and not conceded a goal which will give him a boost. He's first and foremost a defender and sometimes it's not pretty but if we keep the ball out of the net that's what we want.'

Rotherham United's hero yesterday, with the only goal of the game, was Sam Wood. The defender/midfielder is on loan with the Millers until January, although Scott is hoping to extend that, from Brentford.

Speaking after Saturday's game, Scott said, 'I didn't actually think Sam was at his best today but he still wants the ball and works hard. But, it happens, whoever you are, you go to work sometimes and have a bad day at the office and it's about working through that and he persevered.

'His energy levels are fantastic and John Mullins stepped in and got the ball down and saw the pass and it was a positive run from Grabs (Lewis Grabban) who got hold of it, he got his head up and Sam joined in and it was a really, really good finish.'

Asked if the Brett Williams substitution was tactical, with Marcus Marshall replacing him after the half-time break, Scott said, 'Yes. It's about consistency with players and it's Brett's first starts in professional football and he's going to have a spell when things don't go quite to plan. But he'll battle through it. I didn't feel like we were imposing ourselves on the game and we weren't getting Grabs in the game. We thought the left-back could be got at and we weren't having an influence on the game. So, we put Marshy on and had a look at how he did. You want players to come off the bench and have an impact and Marcus is a frustration at the moment. He can be absolutely fantastic and then he tries something that he maybe shouldn't be doing but that's just young players in general and we'll keep persevering and working with him and believe in what he's doing. He's got to take on board everything we are asking him to do and we'll get there in the end.'

I only said the same yesterday about Marcus Marshall. I think he's a good player in the making but some of the things he does leaves you tearing your hair out!
