Millers hold key to their own success, says Jepson

Ronnie Jepson talks to

First team coach Ronnie Jepson insists Rotherham United must focus on themselves if they are to continue their current good form as they take on Bristol City at Ashton Gate.

The Millers travel to the South West to face Lee Johnson’s Robins as they look to build on Saturday’s Yorkshire derby triumph over Leeds United and Jepson insists his side must concentrate on their own game if they are to record a positive result on Tuesday night.

"You have to prepare yourself and look at the strength and weaknesses of the opposition which the gaffer does and we’ll inform the players on that but it’s about us mainly and how we go about our jobs,” he told

“If we continue like we have been doing then hopefully we can come away with some sort of a result.
“We look at it as one game at a time and us getting something out of the game.”

Jepson is well aware of the threat posed by a Bristol City side who have seen an upturn in form recently, recording two wins from their last three outings, and will take nothing for granted despite recent wins over Leeds, Ipswich Town and Middlesbrough.

“It’s a tricky one and like any game in the Championship, whether it’s Bristol City or top of the table, nothing is guaranteed in this league.”
“We’ve had some good reports from them. I know they’ve were beaten on Saturday but they’ve been playing some good football,” Jepson explained.

“The gaffer will look forward to going because he always gets a good reception down there after taking Palace in the Play-offs.

“He’s [Lee Johnson] done a fantastic job and they’ve had some really good results and we know going down there that it will be a really tough game."
