No defeatism for Titans

STAND-in skipper Ben Prescott will rally the Titans side ahead of Sunday's trip to Cornwall, saying: "There's no defeatist attitude here."

Even though Rotherham stay firmly in the bottom four in the Championship and look destined for a mammoth play-off scrap against sides such as Coventry and Birmingham— who both recruited heavily last week prior to the transfer deadline—Prescott is adamant that the Clifton Lane outfit can avoid the drop zone.

And a repeat of last season's performance against Pirates this weekend, when Rotherham came home with the win points, will be just the ticket.

 "Against Exeter last week we played good rugby even though we were a bit shaky in the beginning," said Prescott, who took over the captaincy after Mike Whitehead was laid low with a 'flu bug.

"But we got a result. We had a month off and sometimes guys can mentally wander away and things can get scrappy.

"But we had a good finish and we deserved that bonus point. It was very close in the end.

"If we can play a full 80 minutes like that then there's no reason why we can't get out of the bottom four."

Wednesday night's 42-15 defeat of Birmingham Solihull was the perfect tonic after the 24-18 loss to Exeter, with coach Craig West saying: "For the first 15 minutes it looked like being one of those nights, but we broke them down and just kept working hard. We got five points and I'm delighted with that."

Kick off on Sunday is 2pm, with a live beam-back at Clifton Lane.
