RUFC - Robins Post Cup Defeat

Rotherham United manager, Mark Robins has told the Official Site that the team last night had a 'bad day at the office.'

Forest Green Rovers beat the Millers at Millmoor three-nil and, in my opinion, outplayed, outfought and outbattled us last night.

Robins admits that the non-league club were the better team but he said, 'I don't want to be too critical as the aplyaers have been magnificant in recent games. But it is disappointing to go out of the competition and we were beaten by a team who passed us off the park.

'I think we created enough chances but we never got going. I can't put my finger on it but it might have been a mental thing.

'Forest Green were unlucky not to score in the first minute when Dale Tonge made a great clearance off the line but we had chances and didn't take them. Goals change games and Forest Green scored. But we did have chances and if Stephen Brogan had taken his at one-nil down it could have been different.

'It's not nice to be beaten by lower league opposition but you get those games and I'm sure it's a one off. We take the pats on the backs when it's going well and now we have to take the criticism

'It hasn't worked out and it's back to the drawing board and we have to put this game behind us and concentrate on Saturday's game against Shrewsbury. Good teams don't lose two on the trot and it's up to us to get it sorted. I am confident the players can do that.'
