ROTHERHAM United winger Marcus Marshall has the potential to be a matchwinner but his manager is looking for him to unleash his potential more often.

“He’s the most frustrating player I’ve got because he has so much potential,” said Millers boss Andy Scott about the right winger who will be 22 next week.

Recently Marshall destroyed Accrington for 45 minutes and was a real handful in the first half at Torquay. But he was replaced in the second half of both matches and then at half-time last Saturday.

“He needs to show that potential and be at it every week and make it a regular occurrence rather than a one-off,” said Scott.

“He can tear people apart, he can damage opponents and I’m asking him to do something he’s good at.”

Scott is preparing for Saturday’s trip to face Port Vale one of the clubs fancied to be in the promotion shake-up.

He said that combinations were still being looked at and at how players worked together... “but if that is in positive areas, we still need to be solid and doing jobs as a defensive unit,” he added.

“Perhaps some players have had too much credit for what they can do rather than what they can’t. If they continually do the same things, it’s not going to be right and you have to pass people by. I’m not afraid to admit that. But, we do have some good players here.”
