"We're not safe until it's mathematically impossible to go down" he said..
"If we suddenly lose three and Bournemouth win three then that would leave us only seven points away. There's 22 games left and it's a gruelling schedule and takes some planning for.
"We need to make sure everyone is ready and raring to go and for that reason there will be some rotation going on.
"The players would rather play matches than train and the games we have coming up are the sort you want to be involved in, but we have to make sure that those who do play are fresh.
"The Grimsby team is totally different from the one we played last time. They've brought in six or seven decent players like JP Kalala and Adam Proudlock, who I played alongside a few years ago, and we've got to be ready for them.
"We had a great result against Bournemouth and although we were disappointed to lose at Scunthorpe, there's a second leg to come and we're not out of the tie by any stretch of the imagination."
The Millers also travel to Darlington next Tuesday night, you can pay on the gate for both matches. Team news and tomorrow's preview will be online later.
