All I am concerned about is taking care of our own business - Robbo

Millers manager Mark Robins is putting sentiment to one side as he looks to push Mansfield Town nearer the drop at Field Mill tomorrow.

The Stags face the prospect dropping out of the Football League for the first time in 77 years and are desperate for points from their last two matches to overtake Dagenham, who sit just outside the relegation zone.

The Millers helped Mansfield by beating the London side last weekend however if the Millers beat Mansfield and The Daggers get 3 points against Darlington, it could be the end fo the road for Mansfield and their league status. A draw for the Stags, however would leave them still in with a chance of surviving going into their final-day, mega relegation 6 pointer at Dagenham next week.

According to some, most people connected with the Millers would rather Mansfield retain their Football League status than the distant Daggers but Robins isn't thinking in that direction, as he is in pursuit of a third straight win.

Speaking to today's advertiser Robins said: "All I am concerned about is taking care of our own business. Next season will take care of itself and whoever earns the right to stay up will be still in the league.

"We've won two matches and we want to keep the momentum going and go and do a professional job.

"Mansfield are under pressure and they will have to come out and attack but our confidence ought to be coming back in droves now and we'll have a good following of supporters at the game to cheer us on."

Robins' only has one injury concern, which surrounds ever-present goalkeeper Andy Warrington, who is struggling with a back injury.
If he fails to make it, the Millers' England U18s goalkeeper Mark Oxley will be handed his first full team debut.

A bid that is said to be in the six-figures bracket is already on the table for the 17-year-old and is currently being considered by the club's administrator Jeremy Bleazard. Oxley has had a trial at Aston Villa.

The Rotherham squad will hold a meeting with representatives of the Professional Footballers' Association today to discuss a further wage deferral to help the current financial situation at Millmoor.
