After moving position to cover for the suspended Nick Fenton, Pablo Mills says he's expecting a fight for places as Ronnie Moore looks to improve his squad, and states hes ready for a fight to stay in the teams.

"I feel the pressure for my place but that's always been the case. There's always been a good squad here and players waiting to come in. The gaffer says he will bring his own men in and I don't think anyone can rest on their laurels and think they're going to play every week. Does that give you an extra ten per cent? That's got to be there anyway. You have to show consistency and be on your game regardless of whether the gaffer is saying he is going to bring players in or not." Mills told the 'Tiser.

"Personally, I don't need something like that to give me an edge. I'm one of the worst critics of myself. I give 100 per cent every game. Whether the gaffer thinks that's good enough, that's his choice. I will always fight for the shirt and make it as hard as possible for him not to pick me." he added.

Pablo then spoke about the downturn in form since the arrival of Ronnie Moore; "It's one of those things, Who is to say that if Mark Robins was still in charge, this wouldn't have happened anyway? You can't put it down to the manager. We're still the same team."

"Ronnie has brought in his own ideas and tweaked it to suit how he wants us to play. Obviously, some of the lads are still adjusting a bit. But as I said, we're still the same team. Ronnie's managerial record here speaks for itself." Pablo said.

Pablo looked back at last weekend, where he played at his preferred position in defence; "I've always said centre-half is my position and I thought I did alright. We went a goal ahead but we came slow out of the traps at the start of the second half. They got a quick goal and it lifted the crowd and suddenly we were under pressure."
"At the start of the season you'd have said their first goal wouldn't have gone in but right now we're in a sticky patch and everything seems to be going against us. All we can do is keep working hard, keep trying to perform and that win will come." he added.
