Scott seeks reinforcements

ROTHERHAM United manager Andy Scott is striving to bring in new blood before the closure of the January transfer window tomorrow.

ROTHERHAM United manager Andy Scott is striving to bring in new blood before the closure of the January transfer window.

After seeing his side slump to a third successive defeat at Dagenham and Redbridge on Saturday, Scott said he was looking for new faces, primarily a replacement for striker Chris Holroyd, sold to Preston North End a fortnight ago.

He said: "We are continually trying to make things happen and improve the squad. We keep getting close but not getting over the line with what we're doing. We'll keep plugging away to get the right people in.

"You can only try as hard as you can. We are going in the right areas for players and whether they come or not is sometimes out of our control."

Despite dominating for long periods on Saturday, the Millers let slip a 1-0 half-time lead to lose 3-2, sentencing them to their fourth defeat in five games. They are now six points outside the play-off frame in League Two.

Scott endured a mixed reaction from supporters frustrated by recent results but added: "Everyone at the game could see we played well and did enough to win comfortably.

"We had so many chances, good chances to win three games let alone one. It's just going against us at the moment."

Next up is a home date against in-form Torquay United at Don Valley Stadium on Saturday.

Millers fall to Daggers.
