Vital Rotherham on:
Rotherham United Manager Steve Evans was asked this morning if he was thinking of making any major changes for the Aldershot game next weekend after the poor performance this Saturday at home to Southend.
Speaking to MillersPlayer at training this morning, the Gaffer said, 'There won't be any drastic changes. We are still trying to add to the squad and I've had three or four conversations with the Chairman since the performance on Saturday and I am overwhelmed about the backing he's given me. It's all about a plan at Rotherham and was never about Steve Evans coming in and producing promotion in the first season, although I still think we can achieve that.
'We've had some great backing and are in the market for players but won't sign players for the sake of it. We've been close in getting players in but then something has happened but rather than focussing on new signings we are looking at the players we've got.'
The Manager did have a little word for the fans saying, 'The supporters maybe want to just settle down a little bit because there's pressure enough and they maybe want to go back and look at the league table a year ago this weekend. Swindon Town were fifteenth or sixteenth in the table and Paolo di Canio believed in his players, maybe added two or three and we're trying to add two or three so it's very, very similar.
'In fact, if we win on Saturday then we will have the same number of points that Rotherham United had last season and, as an opposition manager last season, I thought Rotherham had had a great start.'
I can't believe there are people out there calling for the Manager's head. I really do believe that the hype at the start of the season with the new ground and bookies making us favourites to go up had got people believing all we had to do was turn up and we'd win every game. Football, especially in League Two, isn't like that. Yes, we were poor on Saturday but I've seen us play worse. Let's get behind the team and help them get their first away win of the season this weekend.
