Rotherham United Manager, Mark Robins, has told MillersWorld that he hopes the team can bounce back on Tuesday night after the defeat on Saturday.

‘We’re lucky that we’ve got a game on Tuesday and hopefully we can bounce back,’ Robins said. ‘I think the four-nil scoreline makes it look worse than it was. The sending off made it doubly difficult and it was a difficult surface for both sides. I made one or two changes to the team and, I don’t want to make any excuses, but we’ve played a lot of games and I think it’s taken it’s toll a bit.

‘We started slowly and were lucky to be only one down at half time. But at one down you are always in it and we did have some goalmouth action – we hit the crossbar and had a couple cleared off the line. We just didn’t stick it in the back of the net. And, they didn’t have to do a great deal to get four goals.

‘It is difficult to dismiss a performance like this and there are no positives to bring from the game. Andy Warrington has a shoulder injury which we will have to monitor, Danny Harrison is out for three games and Reuben Reid picked up his fifth booking.’
