Clark Robertson talks to www.themillers.co.uk...
Millers defender Clark Robertson insists that morale won’t drop in the Millers dressing room, as he and his teammates continue their quest to keep the club in the second tier this season.
The Scot, who has grown into his role with each passing week since joining from Blackpool, says that the Millers won’t be disheartened by recent results, in spite of slowing in their progress to pick up Sky Bet Championship points of late.
Robertson is confident that there is enough spirit and quality among the first team squad to ensure that they find themselves competing in the second tier again next season.
“We have a good team spirit in the dressing room. I don’t think morale drops that low,” he told www.themillers.co.uk.
“The Championship is relentless and the games come thick and fast. There are very good teams in this league, but we have enough in the changing room to pick up points and wins in the next few months to get our goal.
“Our goal for the season is to stay in the Championship but we do need to start winning games and picking up points.
“We are honest, hardworking lads and we never give up in games. Everyone is still working hard for each other but we possibly need to have more of a nasty streak in us and take our chances when they come along.
“We do not want to be getting dragged into the bottom three but it is tough. There are times, this season, when we should have picked up points but it’s not quite happened for us.”
Despite his impressive form of late, Robertson admits that he cannot afford to take his place for granted – with Raggett and Wood waiting in the wings for another opportunity.
“My form has been decent but there are always people wanting your place and I’m getting pushed by Woody. He wants to be playing, so does Sean Raggett, so it is probably bringing the best out of me,” Robertson said modestly.
“I just need to keep my performances high but I’m not happy with the amount of goals we are conceding at the minute.
“It’s a big step up to the Championship. The pace of the game is different and teams in this league are more ball playing. You’ve always got to be on your toes because the movement of the strikers is very sharp. I think I’ve dealt with it well and there’s much more to come from me, in this league.”
