Clark Robertson talks to www.themillers.co.uk...
Many onlookers may share the same feeling as most from a Rotherham United persuasion following last weekend’s game against Ipswich at Portman Road.
Manager Paul Warne was keen to stress his pleasure at his side’s performance, especially second half, but despite the display he was again frustrated at coming away empty handed.
It has been a familiar tale on the road this season, with the Millers very much in the fight in virtually all of their contests, but performances haven’t been matched with points.
It is a point not lost on defender Clark Robertson who agrees more points deserve to have been taken.
But the Scotsman isn’t downhearted as he, and the rest of the squad, remain upbeat with back-to-back home games on the horizon.
“We need to take the positives from some of the displays, we remain upbeat and look to kick on again,” he told www.themillers.co.uk
“I think we are a little disappointed that we aren't further up the league. There have been games where we felt that we should have got three points but then there have also been games that we probably should have lost. Maybe it evens itself out over time, but I think in these next couple of months we really need to be kicking on again and try and get as far up the table as possible.”
With the Christmas and New Year period firmly in the background, Robertson insists the squad is starting to look healthy again.
Injuries have resulted in boss Warne not being able to fully stock his bench in recent weeks, but with Matt Crooks arriving from Northampton, and players like Kyle Vassell on the comeback trail, things are looking brighter on the medical front.
The former Blackpool ace says he is fully recovered from his recent ankle troubles, and is feeling fresh, hailing the club’s medical team for their work over the festive period.
“The Christmas period will always take something out of you, so it is about how you are managed,” he added.
“We’ve also had some rest and the fitness/medical team here are different class so I am feeling good, and so are most of the boys. We are always well prepared for games, and this weekend will be no different.”
