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

RUFC - Robins post MK Dons

Rotherham United got a point away at MK Dons today but Manager, Mark Robins was glum in his post match interview for the Official Site.


'Football is secondary at the moment,' he said, 'following the injury to Steve (Brogan) that looks like a broken leg. We are going down to the hospital to make sure he's comfortable. His Mum and Dad are with him and we sent Paul Hurst down and the physio has gone to him as well now. Our thoughts are with him - he is a nineteen year old lad who's had a magnificent season. I am very very disappointed for him. All the lads are thinking of him, we are a close knit bunch here.

'The lads responded after the injury magnificently. They got back into the game and could have won it but that is secondary to the well being of Stephen Brogan

'I was pleased of the way the lads fought back and to come back after what had happened was a testament to their togetherness.

'There was some real quality going into the box at the end, the lads who came on took the game to them. Ryan Taylor and Jamie Yates came on and did everything I asked of them

'MK Don's movement and quality in the middle of the park and Gallen's experience up front caused us problems until we got to grips with it. We huffed and puffed and made it too easy in the first half for them but credit to our lads in the second half. Adrian Pettigrew made his debut and he did excellent against Lloyd Dyer. I went 4-4-2 to shore it up and we had one or two defenders out there who acquitted themselves well although it was a poor goal to concede.

'It was a nice stadium to come to and a nice point to take back but it was soured by the injury. Players are resilient and they will be ready for the game against Stockport on Tuesday night. But, at this moment in time I am really not interested in football.'
