Games against the likes of Rotherham United 'don't come much harder' says O'Carroll

21 February 2022

Assistant Manager Diarmuid O’Carroll says Tuesday night’s game against Rotherham United ‘doesn't come much harder’ in Sky Bet League One.

The Shrimps were on the wrong end of a 1-0 scoreline back in August, and O’Carroll says the Millers are a team that have impressed them this campaign. 

“They don’t come much harder than Rotherham to be honest, we are a big fan of the way that they play and they impressed us when they came to the Mazuam earlier on in the season,” he said. 

“They are well coached, they play with a lot of intensity, they are well organised and have a clear style, it is a big test for us but we back ourselves against anybody in this division. 

“Regardless of where we are in the league, regardless of form, regardless of what people externally think, we feel like we are playing well, we will go into the game and attack it.” 

Saturday’s game against Shrewsbury Town was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch, and O’Carroll says despite the set-back it gave the team more time to prepare for the Rotherham fixture. 

He added: “We travelled to the game and we were actually sitting down having our pre-match meal when the news came through that it might not go ahead. 

“The rain started to come down at the last minute I think, so in all fairness to the referee I think he was under pressure to make a decision there and then. 

“By all accounts it cleared up a bit and there were reports that it got better as the day went on but it is what it is, we drove around and had a good training session and attention turned to Rotherham.”
