We must dig in, says Green

PAUL Green says the Millers must stay united if they're to forge a way out of the lower reaches of the Championship.

At 31, he knows his way around the division from his time at Doncaster Rovers, Derby, Leeds and Ipswich.

He also says it's getting harder, with the two recent losses to classy Bournemouth showing how high standards are at the very top.

Green believes that with a more clinical edge they can soon turn things around and that the key now is looking forward, not back.

“You can see why Bournemouth are top,” he told the Advertiser. “They pass the ball well and do what they need to do to grind teams down but I thought the goals we conceded on Saturday were sloppy and gave them a foothold.

“That's the way it's going for us at the moment so we've all got to dig in and stay together and look to the next match.

“It's not like we're playing bad football and getting battered week in and week out. We're playing some decent stuff and we’re 'in' games but we've just got take our chances.

“We'll work on our finishing and hopefully take that into the match against Bolton on Tuesday night.”

Although he'd rather play this weekend, Green says the time off will at least give the new players time to bed in ready for the scrap for points.

“I've played in this league for a long time now and it's getting tougher and tougher,” he adds. “It's probably one of the hardest leagues not only to get out of, but to stay in because anyone can beat each other on a certain day.

“It's all about consistency really and getting them points on the board. If we can get a couple of wins together then we'll get clear of the bottom teams.”
