Thornber: Millers will react

10 September 2009 04:28
Rotherham United caretaker boss Steve Thornber has backed his players to respond positively to the loss of former manager Mark Robins, who left for Championship neighbours Barnsley this week. Before Robins departed, the Millers had enjoyed a rich vein of form at the beginning of the League Two season but the loss of Robins is seen as a big blow. But Thornber expects it to be business as usual at the Don Valley Stadium with or without Robins, having seen the squad react to sticky situations in the past. Rotherham were forced to move homes last season as well as playing with a points deduction. "We have players here who have come through adversity in the past two or three years and they have always come back stronger and I expect the same this time," Thornber told the Sheffield Star. "We all had a chat and they were told it would be a real shame if they let it go. "But they are all really good pros, there are no bad eggs in there, and they are all focused on what they are trying to achieve. "I don't think it will be a problem. They want to continue doing well."
