ROTHERHAM United embark on one of their shortest journeys of the season to Burton Albion this afternoon with manager Andy Scott warning that “they’ve not cracked it” despite the recent improvement.
Wins over Southend and Accrington Stanley allied to improved performances have lifted the Millers back into Play-off contention although they are one of probably eight clubs chasing a single place as the top six are currently well clear of the rest.
“Look, no one is getting carried away, we’ve won two games and we’ve not cracked it - it’s not as though we are on a Torquayesque run,” said Scott, referring to the Devon club’s run of six straight wins which has carried them into the top three.
“This has to be the beginning of something that propels us where we want to be and whilst we are a way off the top six (11 points), a winning run can take teams where they want to be.
“I think we are now heading in the right direction and certainly we need to start getting some wins.”
However, the Millers boss warned against anyone getting too far ahead of themselves.
“I think it is important now that rather than look at where we might be if we do this, we should just concentrate on getting three points from the next game and then move on,” he said.
“We have to play teams around us and you can get wrapped up in that but let’s just concentrate on doing our jobs, doing what we’ve been good at these last three games.
“If we do that, with the energy, organisation and desire, we have shown, then we can be a match for anyone.”
They are expected to be unchanged for today’s game.
