Hurst- Always Going to be a Struggle

Hurst- Always Going to be a Struggle

Rotherham United stalwart, Paul Hurst, admitted to Radio Sheffield that this season was always going to be an uphill struggle as they started on minus ten points.

'It's hard to put into words how I feel even though I wasn't out there this afternoon I am still part of it all. At the moment I am still feeling a little shocked and extremely disappointed.

'We seemed to get over the minus points and at one time there was talk of the play-off's, though that was always a bit optimistic. We lost two of our best players in Lee Williamson and Will Hoskins and you have to take that into consideration, but I still believe we had a good enough squad. We went on a bad run which, eventually, lost Alan Knill his job.

'Mark Robins came in and we have had some good results under him. Relegation was never mentioned in the dressing room - while it's still mathematically possible to stay up there's hope.

'There was nothing in the game today, and I think we had the better chance with Delroy Facey, but he didn't manage to put it in. And, their goal was a bit scruffy, but that's the story of our season. Some of our performances this season have proved we can compete with the best teams but we just haven't been good enough this season.

'Mark Robins and his staff will be thinking about next season and maybe use the last few games for preperation for next year. We have to continue our plan for the Championship - when we were there before we were punching above our weight. You never know, if things are done right you can build to be a Championship side.'
