Town defender ahead of Millers meeting
George Edmundson says Saturday’s defeat to Sunderland has added fuel to the fire within the Town group ahead of this evening’s test against Rotherham.
Town left the Stadium of Light empty handed, and felt hard done by having created the better chances before the Black Cats netted two late goals with their only shots on target in the encounter.
“We’re always up for it but I’d say coming away from a game with nothing really fires you up for the next one,” the central defender said.
“I think the result was harsh on us. It was a big game and we should have taken something from it, but we have to pick ourselves up.
“Tonight is a big one as well, and it’s another opportunity for us. We’re looking forward to the challenge because everyone thinks Rotherham are a team that will be up there come the end of the season.
“We have shown what we can do with performances like those against Portsmouth and Wycombe, but of course we want to be more consistent.
“We’re expecting this to be a physical match. Everyone knows what Rotherham are about. They’re a strong team but they’re also good at the other side of the game, in terms of being direct and winning second balls. It’s a game where you have to be up for the fight."
