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

RUFC - 'Lacks height but has pace'

Rotherham United manager, Mark Robins has already been in the press saying that Jamie Yates has to keep his feet on the ground. Last weekend, at Dagenham, he showed the youngster how to do that, by keeping him on the subs bench.

The eighteen year old came on as substitute at Millmoor the week before and scored two goals, got rave reviews from all and sundry and in any interviews he's done has seemed a very confident young man. Many people were naming him the new Will Hoskins.
Robins doesn't want Yates to go the same way as Hoskins, who had a bit of an attitude problem and was left kicking his heels on the sidelines for a long time, although he eventually became a fans favourite before he left Millmoor, for Watford, under a cloud in January and is currently on loan at Millwall.

'Jamie has obvious potential,' Robins told The Advertiser, 'he's worked well in training this week, which is good because we want him to keep his feet on the ground. It's no good scoring a couple of goals for the first team and doing nothing for the next two years - we saw that with Will Hoskins. We want to give Jamie experience but not directly in the line of fire. When he gets his chance he needs to deliver.

'He's got to kick on from here and I think he plays better up front than he does out wide. He lacks height but he's got pace.'

Yates himself said, 'Experience wise I've come on this season. I was wary last season about what professional football was going to be like but, after doing a full pre-season with the pro's I know a little bit more of what it's about.'
