ROTHERHAM United’s acclaimed performance at Hull will add to the belief that the squad has got already, reckons Kayode Odejayi.

Now the big striker says they have to produce like that week in, week out and not as a one-off.

The Millers played well as they pushed the Championship side all the way before losing their Capital One Cup tie on a penalty shoot-out.

“We didn’t let anyone down and gave a good account of ourselves but we can hold our heads high,” said Odejayi.

“There had been the build-up beforehand after all that’s happened at the club in the summer but regardless of what goes on beforehand you have to give a good account.

“People will say that going there as underdogs to a nice stadium, it’s easy to get yourself up for it but the real thing is League Two, that’s the bread and butter and we have to do that week in, week out.

”The Hull game means nothing - we have to take that performance into Burton on Saturday. I think we have more than enough in our squad to deal with that.”

He acknowledged that such a display can only help the team’s belief... “As a team and a squad we have got that belief anyway but thi will add to it,” he said.”

Rotherham’s following at the KC Stadium on Saturday was 1,415 in an official attendance, finally revealed yesterday, of 6,569.

“It was a tremendous effort by our fans both in terms of numbers and vocal support and there’s some Championship clubs who will go there and not get backing as loud as that,” said boss Steve Evans.
