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

Robins Post Bournemouth

Rotherham United's caretaker manager, Mark Robins, spoke on Radio Sheffield tonight after the two - nil loss to Bournemouth.

He agreed that it had been a disappointing game and said 'that, coming on the back of the game in midweek was a totally different performance.

'I thought at times we sat too deep and we tried to adjust it but found it difficult.

'We never created anything and I think the only shot we had on goal in the first half was towards the end and was a shot by Del (Facey). I think the team may be a little tired, we had a tough game on Tuesday night, but that is just making excuses.

'Their first goal was their first shot at goal and the second was another from a set piece. Cuts made a good save originally and they got the follow up.

'I think we looked flat in defence and static up front.'

He was asked about the substitution of striker Delroy Facey, 'Del has been outstanding for the last few games but I thought he looked static today and we needed to liven things up and so I put Jamie Yates on.

'Every game we lose is a massive blow. We need to put a run together. The lads have worked hard and done everything I have asked.

'We have got to get on with it now - we can't throw in the towel.'

He was asked about the interviews for the managers job. 'I don't think they have taken place yet. It's just as it has been.'
