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

RUFC - Scott 'need to get momentum going'

Join The Vital Debate


Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott says that they have to make their game in hand count.

The Millers will play Gillingham on 21st February, the original game being postponed due to the Gills being involved in the FA Cup.


Speaking to MillersPlayer Scott said, 'The game in hand we've got at Gillingham is a tough one but we are four points off the play-offs.

'There are two teams just ahead of us and we could overtake them with our game in hand which would put us ninth. We need to get in some consistent form because we've shown that we can beat the teams in, around and below us but it's the teams that are above us that are causing us problems. We need to make sure we pick three points up against Port Vale and then we go into the Dagenham game which is always tough away from home before we meet Torquay which is another team around us.

'We need to get some momentum going to get some points on the board and be on the tails of the top seven going into the last twenty games. We need to go on a decent run and, even when we aren't playing well, we need to be picking up one point here and there. We accept that there are times when we won't play well and that the opposition plays above themselves but we've got to keep ticking over the points total and keep in contention.

'The teams above us are there because they've been consistent in picking up points which is why they are there and we are where we are. We need to work hard for each other as a group which we've got but there's a little bit of naivety and we need more mental toughness as a group. That's what we are trying to get into them at the moment because I believe they've got the quality in this squad to go and challenge and they've got to believe that.'
