Keep it going, says Scott

ROTHERHAM United manager Andy Scott is braced for another toughie against Wimbledon this weekend.

ROTHERHAM United manager Andy Scott is braced  for another toughie when his team locks horns with Wimbledon this weekend.

Saturday's 3-2 victory at Hereford United made it three wins from the last four in the league for the Millers. They've trimmed the gap to the top seven to a couple of points but with the Dons the next hurdle at Don Valley on Saturday, Scott says his players can't afford to get ahead of themselves.

He said: "I've seen Wimbledon several times this season and they're a very good side. Maybe their inconsistency is why there are where they are but on their day they're as good as anyone in this league.

"They've got a lot of good players—five or six from my time at Brentford—and some have won promotions.

"They'll be tough but the idea is to win and if that takes us into the play-offs, great. If not then the next one at Macclesfield is when we can get there. We just have to keep ticking away and being professional and being ruthless in what we do."

Scott will this week monitor the fitness of experienced defender Jon Harley, who was forced off at half time at Edgar Street with concussion. Two-goal hero Johnny Mullins also picked up an injury at the end of the first half but played on.
