RUFC - I need 90 minutes from them

Rotherham United Manager, Mark Robins, is demanding a full ninety minutes from his players tonight at Griffin Park. In recent games fans have realised that the Millers only seem able to play for the first half of a game and the manager has told The Advertiser that he realises there is a problem but says it is not down to fitness.

'A lot of attention is going to be on the second half tonight and how we play,` he told the Advertiser. 'We are addressing it. I want us focussed for a full ninety minutes. We are going to Brentford to win and get into the top eight in the League.

'We have to pass the ball as well as we did in the first halves against Mansfield and Grimsby and we have to be solid.`

This is the fifth game for the Millers in less than fourteen days and Robins said, 'It`s a hell of a lot. I had to get the balance right with my team selection on Tuesday and our training and preparation for tonight has been geared to make sure we are as fresh a possible.'

Perhaps we could get special compensation to play two teams - one in each half?
