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

RUFC - Robins Post Darlington

Rotherham United manager, Mark Robins, told the Official Site after today's defeat that he thought we had a lot of possession but didn't manage to get the ball in the net

He went on to say, 'I thought Darlington were a big, physical side and I told the players that once they coped with that they would be able to play football.

'I thought we did OK in the first half. But when we made changes it was a bit of a worry that it made us look weak.

'We need to be looking to strengthen and we will be getting on with that. We need to have players with a killer instinct and today we didn't have that

'We were huffing and puffing a bit so I brought on Marc Newsham to change it round. I thought Marc Joseph did well in the Ian Sharps role. It does make a difference when you have players missing but we have to be able to cope with that.

'Andy Todd had a few good chances but it wasn't to be. The first goal was a poor one to concede from our point of view and the second was when we were pushing for an equaliser.

'Darlington have shown us the way to go and I don't think we were outplayed today although they were more physical than us and we have to learn to cope with that.

Sorry, but I have to disagree - I think we were outplayed by not being able to dish out as much stick as they were. I also thought it stopped our game when Holmes was subbed

Proved today we are not as good as many think ... HEREFORD = POOR PETERBRO = GOOD 1st HALF , POOR SECOND STOCKPORT = THANKS REF, CHESTER = POOR AGAIN MANSFIELD = PURELY ABISMAL DARLO = NOT A GR8 TEAM BUT FAR FAR BETTER THAN US ROBBO HAS A LOT OF HARD WORK TO DO WITH NOT MUCH RESOURCES, HAS DONE REASONABLY WELL CONSIDERING , AS FOR D.HOLMES PLAYS MORE LIKE A CART HORSE THAN A HEFTY FORWARD......

I think you are being a little harsh on Holmes there, '84. I'm not saying he's the most agile of forwards we've seen but he does put himself around a bit and I said earlier, I think our game stopped when he was taken off.
