We need to up our game - Pablo

Last updated : 31 October 2008 By Bigrich.....
Ahead of tomorrow's clash with table-toppers Wycombe, Mills said: "We've played two of the top teams now in Darlington and Bury. We've won one and lost one but we need to pull out the results against these sides if we are going to build upon this good start we've had.

"Every game is a big for us now and, coming into the next couple of months when we're going to be playing the better teams, we must raise our game and try and get some points.

"I talk anyway out on the field but as a captain there's only so much I can do. We're all in it together and we've all got to pull each other along. I place a lot of pressure on myself to try and get people up for games."

Fans have criticised Mills himself recently for a string of under par performances and he admits the team need to be bang at it to maintain their good start, including himself: "The atmosphere was flat Tuesday night and we failed to raise the tempo. Darlington came with a gameplan to unsettle us and it worked for them.

"We need to be cuter. Teams know how we play, especially at home, and they're going to come and try and do what Darlington did to us. To be fair, they are a good side and they're up there for a reason. They've got a bit of quality and got a goal and closed the game out. But what you've got to remember is that teams comes to Don Valley thinking we're fourth top, not fourth bottom.

"Darlington showed us that respect by coming and killing the game and it worked for them. Personally, I've not had the best of form but I'll keep going and giving 100 per cent and it will come right for me.

"We've got to get back to the drawing board, get our heads together and try and get a result this weekend."
