Robins calls for fan backing
02 Mar 2007 - 11:40:46
Rotherham United's caretaker-manager Mark Robins has urged Millers fans to rally behind the side in the battle to avoid relegation.
Robins was handed the managerial reins on an interim basis following the decision to sack Alan Knill earlier in the week.
And Robins, who was working behind the scenes with the youth players at Millmoor, believes the fans can play their part in helping the League One basement club close the eight-point gap to their nearest relegation rivals.
"I want the fans to get behind us 100 per cent," he said. "I'd like to get back the atmosphere in the ground that we had when I was playing.
"Professionally I want to do a damn good job. I demand that from myself and I'll demand it from the players.
"I know this is a cliche, but I'm taking one game at a time. Results breed confidence and we've been struggling with that lately.
"Sometimes a change can freshen things up and I think there's something not quite right at the moment with the players.
"I wish Alan (Knill) all the best in the future. He's a good man. I'm different to Alan and will instill my own thoughts and beliefs on the players. What I have to say to them will hopefully stir them into performing."
