Following Rotherham United's highest home defeat since the 7-2 defeat by Bournemouth in October 1972, caretaker boss Mark Robins has asked if the players have the belief that we could still stay up.
'It was a bad defeat on Saturday but, as professionals, you have to pick yourself up and we still have 10 games to go,' said Robins.
'I asked them if there is still belief in the dressing room and, really, looking at Saturday would suggest that there is a real lack of belief in themselves to get us out of it".
Robins insisted that bridging the 11 point gap between The Millers and 5th from bottom Chesterfield, is not an impossible task.
'It depends how you react to things but while you still have a chance mathematically then you have a chance and you have to go for it,' he told The Rotherham Star.
'We had a positive week leading up to the game but you look for a reaction from players and we are reacting to situations when it's too late whereas you have got to be lively, got to be expecting things, realising danger.
'The previous week had heightened the senses, a change of manager, change of voice, and something happens.
'This week, it dropped off a little bit again and we've been severely punished for it. The two games have been chalk and cheese.
'I take encouragement from some of the attacking play and we could, on another day, put away some of those chances.'
Robins has been told he will still be in charge for Saturday's trip to fellow relegation fighters Brentford as the board are still looking for the ideal replacement for sacked manager Alan Knill.
