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

RUFC - Evans 'Got To Keep Fighting'

Rotherham United Manager Steve Evans says that the Millers are going through the worst injury crisis that he`s ever seen in his career as a Manager.

Speaking to Leon Wobschall of the Yorkshire Post the Millers Boss said, 'Surely we cannot keep having the same luck we are having with injuries now. It is unprecedented.`

The Millers have injuries to Kari Arnason, Lionel Ainsworth, Scott Shearer, Dale Tonge and Mitch Rose with David Noble and Craig Morgan doubts for today`s game with Cheltenham. Adding to the list is Jamie Devitt, who returned to his parent club at Hull due to injury and now goalkeeping coach Andy Dibble has to have a cartilage operation after getting injured in training.

'You look at it and think where will it stop?` Evans said.

'But, that is no excuse for last Saturday`s performance - from the management team to the squad we were all guilty because we win together, we lose together.

'But, if you feel sorry for yourself, you can buckle. It is about staying strong, getting your upper lip up and fighting. Sometimes, players talk the talk. The ones who are silent are often hurting the more. We have always said to the players here that actions and performances speak louder than words. We do not want them coming to tell me they are sorry and let themselves and the team down. They produced the performances.`

Speaking about today`s game and visiting Cheltenham, who Evans says have an excellent squad, he said, 'If I was going into the game full strength, I would not be giving too many second thoughts over what the outcome would be. But we are having to get more from less.`

And I think the fans have to think about that today. It`s no good saying that the team 'owe us a performance for last week` when we only have half a squad available. I really do think it`s going to be backs to the wall this afternoon and we, the fans, can help by singing the praises and not grumbling - last weeks been and gone, we`ve all had our say and now it`s time to get behind the lads and help them get points today.
