Mark Robins thought his side looked tired.....

Last updated : 21 November 2008 By Duke

"I thought it was a tired performance"

"We made a decent start to the game but then our passing went astray and we looked leggy. Tonight was our 24th game in three months and generally we play that amount of games in a six month period."

Robins went on to say:

"I am disappointed to be going out of the competition because we wanted to have a good run but it just wasn't to be. Looking back it was very similar to last season and it is difficult to take but we need to take it on the chin and come back from it. I need to have a good look at the squad and see who is fit and then put together a side that can go out and beat Bradford City."

The Millers lost Captain Pablo Mills through injury in the first half and Robins explained why he was forced to make a change:

"Pablo came off with a stomach strain and we have had a quick look at him and there is a possibility that he will be available for Saturday, he said.

"He has had a problem with his stomach for the last couple of weeks so we need to have a look at him over the next couple of days but I feel that he will okay for the weekend."

On the the injury to Andy Warrington he is considering the possibility of bringing in a replacement: "Andy is going to be out for six weeks so we are looking at bringing someone in. I have had a few people in mind so we will look to do something shortly."
