Robins bemoans Millers schedule

Published Add your comment

Rotherham manager Mark Robins believes his side's punishing schedule finally caught up with them as they slipped to a 2-0 defeat at Barnet.

A second-half brace from Paul Furlong got the better of the Millers, who completed their 51st game of the season and their fifth consecutive Saturday-Tuesday outing.

"I thought we were leggy," said Robins. "I think that's inevitable if you analyse the amount of games we've played, but it's not an excuse."

He added: "If we'd won this game the run of away wins would've been the best since something like 1951 - that just shows you what an achievement it is.

"We need to push on and pick up those wins that (without their deduction) would give us one of the top three positions.

"That's the target, so there's still a lot to play for and we're looking forward to the remaining games."
