Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott says he is very pleased with his teams performances of late, but isn’t getting too carried away.
Speaking to MillersPlayer, Scott said, ‘Results are the main thing but we’ve had a couple of decent performances where we’ve been organised and solid and we made it very difficult for Southend and Accrington. To have two games back to back like this is excellent and it’s how I like my sides to play. I like them to be hard to beat and organised and work very hard. We know we’ve got good players with good ability but the benchmark is how organised they are and how they work for each other which we’ve shown over the last two games.
‘Yes, I’m pleased but we’re not getting carried away. We’ve been here before thinking that everything is going well and we’ve had a little bit of a fall, so, at this stage of the season we’ve just got to make sure that we take all the positives into the next game.
‘We haven’t been able to play the same side for three games on the bounce all season with suspensions and injuries so if we can keep people fit and keep people together and playing well there will be people knocking on the door trying to get into the side which is healthy as well.
‘We’re all in it to win games. And working Monday to Friday people only really see the results on a Saturday and we haven’t really got the results that we deserve sometimes but everyone’s in the same boat with the hard luck stories and we have to make sure that we get on a really good run in the last seventeen games and pick up enough points to put ourselves in a good position.’
Asked about any injuries from Tuesday nights win over Accrington, Scott said, ‘We had a few bumps and bruises but you’re going to get that in League Two football. We had a reserve game yesterday and everyone came through that OK. Everyone is desperate to keep their place and play so we will be looking after them for the next couple of days to make sure we’re firing on all cylinders for the game on Saturday at Burton.
‘Shaun Harrad will be desperate to play against his old side on Saturday. He’s had a good start for us with two goals in two and he could have had a couple more. I’m delighted with him but I’m delighted with everyone. It’s a team game and we’re all in it together and the players deserve the credit but, we can only pat ourselves on the back when we’ve got to where we want to be, which isn’t going to be until the end of the season.’
Asked about Gareth Evans, who has had a back and thigh problem Scott said, ‘Gareth is stepping up his rehab but he hasn’t joined in training yet. He’s getting closer and closer so that will be another body to help us out.’
