Scott urges players to believe in themselves

Manager Andy Scott says his players need to believe in what they are doing despite admitting the job is very much work in progress Scott takes his team to Plymouth tomorrow ahead of Saturday's clash and welcomes back Troy Brown from International duty, and after tasting defeat against Leicester in the Carling Cup in midweek the Millers are looking to get back to winning ways quickly after their 1-0 win over Oxford last weekend. But despite a 4-1 reverse on Tuesday night, Scott says nobody should be downbeat. “I think that first half will help everyone,” Scott told the Star. “Players must believe more in themselves, look around the dressing room and realise they have got good players around them. “My belief in them was justified in that first half. But those who have been here a while have taken a few knocks and disappointments in the past couple of years. “But it’s not about that, about negatives; this is a different regime, a different set of lads, a different way of doing things. There were a lot of positives and we’ll work on the things we’ve done wrong.” “What we did against a top class side means we are going the right way about it. We had a good performance last Saturday and we believe we are doing the right things. “Certainly we did not meet quality like that in pre-season and we won’t be doing so in League Two. Maybe had we been together another year then perhaps we could have caused an upset. “But once the players recognise they can do it then we’ll be a lot better off. We are a work in progress.”
