RUFC - Robins being 'cagey'

Rotherham United manager, Mark Robins is being cagey over his team for today's clash with Grimsby Town at Millmoor.

The 4-4-3 that worked so well last week at Dagenham is under review and Robins told RotherFM that it wasn't always possible to name an unchanged side. 'You can't always do it with a young squad like ours. Dips in form are inevitable and I have to utilise the whole squad.'

He told The Star, 'Last week we were away from home and this week we are at Millmoor and we have to use the home advantage.

'We've been looking at things and have a game plan in place. Expectations have been lifted and you want that and the players want it but we do have a very young squad who are still learning.'

He said he was pleased with the three up front last Saturday, Marc Newsham, Ryan Taylor and Chris O'Grady saying, 'Marc and Ryan were unlucky not to score but if they keep getting in the right positions, the goals will come.'

Marc Joseph has been playing in the reserves after a kidney infection laid him low for a long time and will be in the squad today along with Tom Cahill who scored in the 2-1 reserve defeat this week against York.

The last word goes to the cagey Mr Robins who said, 'People may expect the same again after last week - it might be, it might not.'

(Even the trepid Vital reporter we sent out yesterday couldn't get anymore out of the manager than that!)
