RUFC - Skipper on FA Cup

Rotherham United captain, Graham Coughlan has been reflecting on the two all draw in the FA Cup game at The New Lawn last Sunday.

As captain it was his job to help the manager instill the threat that the non-league side could be but he told The Advertiser 'Talk is cheap and it's alright talking before the game but you have to go out there and perform on the day. If you don't, then all the talk in the world isn't worth it's salt.

'It was a totally different Rotherham United on Sunday to what you've seen in previous weeks. And, we know it wasn't good enough.'

And although Coughlan wasn't directly to blame for Stuart Fleetwood's two goals that put Forest Green two up in the first half he did take some of the responsibility for allowing the striker to slip through the defence. 'The guy only touched the ball a few times in the first half but came away with two goals. Speaking as a central defender that was very disappointing.'

The travelling Millers fans boo's at half time turned to relieved cheers at the full time whistle when goals from Stephen Brogan and Chris O'Grady gave the Millers the lifeline of a replay next week at Millmoor. But Coughlan didn't join in any of the celebrations at the end of the game he marched off the field and believes the job isn't done yet.

'I've gone out of this competition in similar circumstances in the past thinking that a home replay is going to be a stroll. Forest Green will be focused and as workmanlike as they were last time and it is going to be just as hard for us. Unless we get our heads right then we could find ourselves in an embarrassing situation.'

The FA Cup replay tickets are on sale at Millmoor. Season ticket holders have until today to claim their seat.
