RUFC - Skippers thoughts from Saturday

RUFC - Skippers thoughts from Saturday

Rotherham United skipper Ian Sharps told MillersPlayer that he thought the Millers could have taken all three points on Saturday at York.

Speaking this week, the thirty-one year old former Tranmere defender said, 'I didn't think we were at our best in the first half but I thought we equipped ourselves quite well in the second half and could have won it. But, it's another unbeaten game and, to get anywhere in this league, you have to put a string of results together. We had the opportunities to win it but it wasn't to be but it was good to keep a clean sheet.

'I think the back four has done reasonably well in the last few weeks and apart from Port Vale we've been quite happy at how we've been playing. The back four and the four in front of us have had to work hard to keep clean sheets.'

Speaking about his partnership with on loan Craig Morgan, Sharpsy said, 'It takes time to gel but it's coming on and it's a settled back four at the moment. He's a quality player who has replaced other quality players and since he's been here he's been solid.

'Through injuries and suspensions and National call-ups we've had different players all over the pitch this season which hasn't led to a settled side but the last few games we've been settled and only conceding one in three which is good to see.'

Goalkeeper Scott Shearer came in from a bit of praise from the skipper too, 'Obviously he's in there to make saves,' Ian said, 'but his kicking has been exceptional too and he's got us out of a few sticky situations.

'As a team I think we've got a lot more to give and if we play to our potential we'll win games and that's what the aim is for the rest of the season.'
