I think we were all a little disappointed with the Millers performance, particularly in the first half, in the one-all draw against Walsall at home last Saturday but there’s one thing you can say about Rotherham United and that’s that they never give in.
Let’s be honest a couple of years ago if we’d gone one down earlyish on in a game and was still one-down we probably would have conceded more goals and heads would have dropped (for goodness sakes this time three years ago we were losing five-nil to Chesterfield). But this squad of players aren’t like that and their ‘never say die’ attitude shows in practically every game we are involved in at the moment. And that can only be good.
We have another ‘big’ game coming up this weekend and after Saturday’s less than active performance do you think Steve Evans should change some players? After all we do have a very good bench and, after Saturday, is it time to give one or two of those a go?
Who would I change?
Without a doubt I’d keep Adam Collin in goal. If Mark Bradley is fit I’d have him in for Brindley. I’d keep Joe Skarz, Kari Arnason and Craig Morgan. Or maybe push Arnie back and put Rob Milsom in?
I’d actually have to think very hard between Richie Smallwood, Miles Addison and Claude Davis – I think Smallwood has got better with every game yet I do like Miles Addison’s ‘you shall not pass’ attitude.
Lee Frecklington – well I’d build my team round Frecks so he’s got to stay! And Kieran Agard is a little warrior so I couldn’t drop him.
Now I might get slaughtered for this but I’d give Michael O’Connor a start and have Ben Pringle on the bench but ready to come on if needed.
So the two up front – I’d keep Alex Revell in the starting eleven, he works so hard. Which leaves one more. I think I might start Nicky Adams against Peterborough which would mean Wes Thomas dropping to the bench – for me the lad didn’t look as fit as he did before his time off injured.
Of course these are just my thoughts (and they do change, often!) and I don’t expect anyone to agree with me – so come and have your say. Tell us here on Vital Rotherham what your starting eleven would be.
It’s over to you ?.
