RUFC - Robins Pre Hereford

RUFC - Robins Pre Hereford

Rotherham United manager, Mark Robins, says that every game from now on is important. He said he was disappointed and frustrated over the game on Tuesday night because a result at Peterborough would have put pressure on MK Dons who are at the top of the table right now and having a blip of their own.

Speaking to RotherFM, Robins said, 'Football being football we do have the opportunity again this Saturday to close the gap and then we play MK Dons next week. It's a big period in the season right now and there could be eight or nine clubs who could get into the top three. It's going to be difficult this month and if we can come out of it unscathed we are in with a chance. But, there are a lot of games left and things will change on a weekly basis. If we can put a run of games together, like we've just had, we will be in with a shout for promotion.

'We have Hereford here tomorrow and I went to see them play Chesterfield and they lost to Barnet this week. They've had a lot of games in a short space of time and that may have affected them over the last few games. It will be a tough game and we have to bounce back and put on a good performance.

'I think we beat ourselves on Tuesday and at times we were lacklustre. But they wanted to win and it showed with Ian Ross near the end wanting to do things quickly but we will learn from that. The lads have been magnificent upto now and I'm not going to criticise them too much. Losing is part and parcel of the game and they took the loss on the chin and are upbeat again.

'I've brought in Adrian Pettigrew because we have a couple of players only one booking away from a suspension. He is an excellent addition to the squad and is full of enthusiasm and has had League experience with Brentford and Wycombe and this will give him an opportunity to play league football. I want to thank Chelsea because they are paying his wages until the end of the season. I've looked at bringing others in but it's very difficult and I don't want to jeopardise our own young players who've helped us to get where we are this season and deserve the credit for doing that.

'Graham Coughlan came back on Tuesday after an injury and I thought he was back to his best and started very brightly and aggressive and won everything going forward.'
