Scott calls for big effort

PROMOTION may be gone, but Rotherham United manager Andy Scott says his players will be under close scrutiny when they take on Aldershot Town tomorrow.

A run of only one win from the last 12 has all but snuffed out the Millers' play-off chances in League Two, meaning they will be playing only for pride at the Recreation Ground and in next Saturday's final game at home to Torquay.

But with ten players out of contract this summer, time is running out for individuals to prove they are worth another deal.

A return of only one point from six over Easter has left Scott still waiting for his first victory after three games in charge and he will be examining how they respond to having the carrot of promotion taken away.

He said: "I'm looking for commitment, enthusiasm and an improvement in the remaining two games.

"I've seen good signs in the three matches so far but also things we need to work on.

"I don't want the season to fade away. I want the last two matches to be an indication of just how much people want to be here. Everyone is under scrutiny, simple as that.

"I like winning football matches and we have to get that winning mentality back."

The Millers will make late decisions on the injury trio of Nicky Law, Ryan Taylor and Andy Warrington before tomorrow's game.
