ROTHERHAM United manager Andy Scott has flashed a warning about clubs fighting for their lives at the bottom as his side prepare to face Plymouth Argyle at Don Valley Stadium today.
“The teams down there know time is starting to run out and they need to get results,” said the Millers boss. “It makes them dangerous opponents.
“Plymouth’s results have improved and Carl Fletcher is doing a good job there. They have picked up recently and will be desperate to stay out of the bottom two.
“They have some experience through the spine, people like Darren Purse, Paul Wotton and Nick Chadwick, and they are a different team to the one we beat down there at the start of the season.
“We need to win games as well and we need the intensity we showed in midweek, but also patience and to keep moving the ball.”
It is the final game of Shaun Harrad’s loan spell, with a decision this weekend on an extension or otherwise.
Defender Johnny Mullins, who joined the club in 2010, has signed a two-year extension to his contract.
Meanwhile, the Millers Rotherham United are looking to recruit players, aged from seven to 16, for their Development Centre programme.
Trials are on March 20, 27, and April 17 at the club’s Sheffield centre; on March 21, 23 and Apr 18 at their Chesterfield centre and on March 23, 30 and Apr 20 at the Rotherham (Dearne Valley) centre.
Applications for a trial or more information can be obtained from the club’s Carla Kennett on 07792 010011. Alternatively, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Many of the coaching staff at the Centre of Excellence also work with the players at Development Centre level.
