Boss wants Rotherham reaction

4 April 2013

Jim wants to see improvement

SHRIMPS' boss Jim Bentley is demanding a response from his players after Monday's disappointing 1-0 defeat against Wycombe at the Globe on Monday.
Bentley says he is still shocked at how poorly his side played last time out and wants a much improved display on Saturday against the promotion chasing Millers.
He said: "I'm still reeling a bit from Monday because we were so poor.
"The pitch didn't help but we can't use that as an excuse because we were second best in far too many areas. I felt sorry for the fans because that just wasn't us and they deserve better than that.
"Rotherham will be really tough opponents but we have done pretty well at home against the top teams and I want us to show that same type of form and spirit this weekend.
"Although we have 52 points I am still looking over my shoulder a bit as the teams below us all seem to be winning. It's a mad league this year and even the bottom team have 45 points with four or five games to go and that is largely unheard of. Even thought I think it would be amazing if the points we have now are not enough I will be a lot happier when we are mathematically safe and some points on Saturday will play a big part in that.''
