RUFC - Evans Asks Fans Not To Be Concerned
Vital Rotherham on:
Rotherham United Manager Steve Evans has asked the clubs fans not to be concerned with the teams form at present.
After the defeat at home to Bristol Rovers Evans said he was as down as he'd ever been as a manager but he is asking people to put everything into perspective.
Speaking to Radio Sheffield the Millers Boss said, 'We were on a similar run in September and October when things wouldn't fall for us and we changed one or two things and it gave us a spark so let's put things into perspective because, if we win our game in hand, we'll go third.'
The Millers fell to ninth after Saturday's three-one defeat and are on the same points as Fleetwood and Southend and they also have games in hand of all but one of the clubs above them.
The thing is, we've got to win that game in hand and the way we've been playing of late I'm not sure that will happen -though, of course, I really hope I'm wrong.
On paper we've got the best team in League Two and one that, at the start of the season, we were expecting to take us up. But there seems to be something not right on the pitch which includes wild passing and, mostly, non-defending.
The fans turned on the team after Saturday either with booing or by leaving early which is something I was hoping I'd never see at the New York Stadium. The problem now is if it all goes pear shaped again next Saturday the fans are going to start showing their feelings by not coming to the games.
