RUFC - Scott 'not surprised by Pringle today'

Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott said he wasn`t surprised by Ben Pringles performance when he came on for the second half this afternoon.

Ben, who joined the Millers in the summer, has found it hard to push his way into the first team and has only played one full ninety minutes, which was in the Johnstone`s Paint Trophy against Sheffield United.

But, after a poor first half showing by the Millers at Barnet this afternoon, he was brought on for the whole of the second half.

'We had a good chat in January and I think he expected his career to pan out a bit different to what it has. But, he`s responded to what we`ve asked him to do and he`s wanted to prove a point. He now understands that if he fits in the framework of how we play we can get the best out of him.

'We saw the best of him today and he was outstanding. We got him on the ball and he got crosses in. He worked hard, he got back, he involved himself, had plenty of time and its credit to him and he`s got to make it work every game. The people around him have got to help him too and he`s got to help others because it`s a team game.

'He`s had a tough six months and had a lot of things going on behind the scenes that haven`t helped and he`s responded well.

'But now, he`s got to go and do it again. Alright, he isn`t going to play to that high level every game but if he attempts to do those things then he`s not going to go far wrong.`

Asked about the other substitutions, Scott said, 'Shaun Harrad was starting to tire and we wanted to keep the momentum up. We knew balls were coming into the box and that Warney causes problems and the lad got sent off because Warney chased him down.

'Danny Harrison had a car crash yesterday so we didn`t know how well he was going to be and it might have affected his performance.

'Clearly, Grabbs (Lewis Grabban) not being available was a blow. He left the hotel at 3 am this morning after a pretty drastic phone call to go back up to Sheffield because his girlfriend is in labour and had to go to hospital. We`ll speak to him this evening to find out if she is OK and to see if the baby has been born but, as you know, there could be complications. But, hopefully, everything has gone well and that he will be available for Tuesday.`
