ROTHERHAM United manager Andy Scott is preparing to make more changes in January in the bid to push his side from mid-table to promotion challengers.

And Scott, who has brought in 13 signings - either permanent or loan - since the summer, admits some of those arrivals have not come up to the mark.

In addition, he has warned others that they have to decide whether they want to “come with us” and make the extra effort to be part of the group.

“I’ve spoken to the chairman about what I want to do in January,” said Scott whose side head for Hereford tomorrow. “We need to make changes, need to move people on. There are those who have not shaped up and need to move on.

“There are players I’ve brought who haven’t stepped up to the mark and I hold my hands up on that.

“But there are those I’ve brought in who have set standards that others can’t reach. We need everyone to reach the same standard and if we get that then we will be a force, a hard team to play against.”

He said the number of goals conceded this season, 42, was “not acceptable” and is determined to do something about it, with chairman Tony Stewart giving him the go-ahead to make signings.
