ROTHERHAM United manager Andy Scott felt his side “showed potential” despite their 2-1 defeat by Sheffield Wednesday at Don Valley Stadium last night.
“It was a real tough test, up against a strong, powerful side, but we stuck at it and I think our fitness is good at the stage we are at,” said Scott.
“I am disappointed with the two set-piece goals we conceded, we made too many enforced errors and there were some sloppy passes.
“But we have a lot of new players, it is early days, we are changing things and it will take time.
“But we’ll get there and we showed we have potential.”
“Fitness wise, they are working ever so hard and perhaps one or two looked a little bit ‘leggy’.
“We have been working on our shape and we’ll keep working.”
