CARETAKER boss Andy Liddell says there will be a positive response from Rotherham United’s players at Lincoln City tonight and doesn’t expect any hangover from a week ago.

“They want a performance for themselves because, after last Friday at Chesterfield, they are hurting,” said Liddell who will oversee his first match along with fellow coaches Paul Warne, Andy Dibble and Nicky Eaden following the departure of Ronnie Moore and assistant Jimmy Mullen.

“I’ve played in teams beaten heavily and it’s very rare that you don’t get a response. I believe these players will respond because they’ve got to.

“They didn’t play like that intentionally, it happens. But you deal with it, get on with it and myself and my colleagues fully expect that to happen.”

The Millers have slipped to eighth in League Two but Liddell is adamant there is no reason why they can’t still win promotion.
