DESPITE conceding that deflating stoppage time equaliser at Northampton, Millers boss Andy Scott said he wouldn’t have to pick his team up ahead of this afternoon’s big clash with Play-off rivals Gillingham.
“There was no time for sulking or for moping around, it was about our focus on a big game against Gillingham,” said Scott. “We have to be ready for that.We know that if we beat Gillingham and results fall our way again then we are in with a chance,” he said. “I’m sure the fans will get right behind us.”
His concern at the weekend were injury doubts to Nicky Law, ankle, and Ryan Taylor, back. Both came off in the second half of the 2-2 draw at Northampton with Scott saying the Taylor withdrawal was precautionary.
A fitness boost was the return of Ian Thomas-Moore who went on in the second half at Sixfields whilst Andy Warrington was on the bench.
Gillingham’s shock 4-2 home defeat by Barnet ended their 16 match unbeaten run with Scott there to see it.
