RUFC - Revs 'Massive positive tonight'

RUFC - Revs 'Massive positive tonight'

Rotherham United striker, Alex Revell said that there was no better way to react to the going's on at the club than to get a win.

Speaking to MillersPlayer after the four-two win at Don Valley last night, the twenty-eight year old said, 'The players came in today not really knowing what was happening but I think the way we've reacted to it has been excellent. It's the best way to come back by scoring goals, that we haven't been doing recently, and a great win and we've got to continue that now.

'It was tough because the gaffer (Andy Scott) wasn't a horrible guy or anything like that and I got on really well with him. We came in today and we needed to get a win for ourselves and the most pleasing thing is the way that we've stuck together. Patto (Darren Patterson), Warney (Paul Warne) and Darren (Sarll) have come in and been very positive which worked and we've got a good win. Everyone was feeling down today because the manager worked very, very hard for this club but it just didn't happen for him, results didn't go for him and sometimes players have got to take responsibility. There's been a few mistakes in the past that have cost us games which top clubs don't do.

'Obviously we've now shown what we can do, and why didn't we do that a couple of weeks ago? Well that's football. At the end of the day we aren't good enough to be in the play-offs at the minute, which is where we all want to be and it's just as frustrating for us playing as it is for the people watching. Unfortunately, Manager's come and go, but as players, we've got to stay here and continue what we've done tonight. We've lost two in eight or nine and we shouldn't have lost, although Oxford perhaps we deserved to but Torquay, I thought we were the better team and should have won.

'It's a bit doom and gloom sometimes when a manager goes but it's a massive positive today. Prings (Ben Pringle) was magnificent today and he's come back in and shown what he's about. I think the team wanted to prove to everyone that we are together today. Everyone who got their shirt tonight was told if you do the job then you keep them and Patto, Warney and Sarllsy are breeding confidence in us and, maybe tonight, people will have gone away saying we've finally shown what we can do. With everything happening this is a big club and it should be an honour to put on the shirt and maybe, in the past, it hasn't come across to the fans like that.

Speaking about his goal tonight, Alex said, 'I've been waiting for a long time for that. To be honest, I've been finding chances hard to come by recently, whether that's been through not getting them or being in the wrong place. Luckily, tonight, it went into the back of the net and it was nice to get a goal but more importantly we've shown that we are all together.

'There's no one here who doesn't want to work hard. I've been at a few clubs and this is the only time I've felt that all the lads want to work hard and we'll be doing everything we can to get up that table.'
