Scott faces ex-boss as Millers look to recover

Have your say

ANDY Scott reckons that Micky Adams has “unfinished business” at Port Vale and tips them to be one of the big League Two promotion rivals for Rotherham United.

It was Adams, when manager at Brentford, who signed Scott as a player from Sheffield United in 1997 (Andy’s brother, Rob, also played under Adams when he managed Fulham).

“Micky is a very good manager, you only have to look at the clubs where he’s been and how well they’ve done,” said the Millers boss whose side are at Vale Park this afternoon.

“He had his difficulties at Sheffield United but it was an opportunity that he could not turn down at the time.

“It’s good for him he gets the chance to go back to Vale because they were doing very well when he left and he has unfinished business there.

“Certainly he knows what’s required to do well in this division.

“He’s a tough lad, knows what he wants from his players and if you don’t deliver then he makes his feelings known.

“Port Vale will be in his mould - his teams are strong, powerful, fit and he knows how to get results.”

Scott said: “We are looking to respond after last week (4-0 home defeat to Southend). A manager looks for a reaction after something like that and we got that in training.

“They are an honest bunch of lads who want to do well and they’ll want to put it right.”

Scott is contemplating changes but suggested he would be reluctant to ask Johnny Mullins to play tomorrow and then on Tuesday against Sheffield United (when Troy Brown will be away on Welsh Under-21 duty).

Vale, six places below fifth-placed Rotherham, will go above them if they win.
