Jamie Lindsay knows that Rotherham United ‘have a big week’ ahead of them as they fight for their Championship status.
The Scot returned to action over the Easter weekend, making a substitute appearance at Millwall before featuring in the disappointing defeat to Wycombe – and is focused on putting things right as Rotherham travel to Huddersfield on Saturday.
Lindsay sustained a hamstring injury at Preston North End in early February, but is back and more driven than ever, ready to make his mark as the Millers gear up for four games in a week.
“It was a disappointing day [Monday] and everybody knows that,” Lindsay told the club’s website.
“It was unexpected because the boys were confident. I hadn’t been playing but even coming back into the team, we were confident that we could go and put a performance on and get the three points – obviously that didn’t happen.
“If you get beaten 3-0 by anybody it is a sore one to take, but knowing where Wycombe were in relation to ourselves we knew how big of a game it was. For us to put on the performance we did, has left the players feeling like we’ve let people down.”
One thing that no Rotherham player is likely to have previous experience of, however, is the chaotic run of fixtures the Millers face in the next week.
Rotherham travel to Huddersfield on Saturday, they then host QPR on Tuesday, before a big match on Thursday night against Coventry City. United end the week with a home game against another club facing relegation in Birmingham City on Sunday.
“We know that we’ve got a massive week coming up,” Lindsay said.
“We’ve got four games. It isn’t ideal how close they are to each other but we know that if we have a good week, everything changes again.
“When you look at the games, we have to be confident going into them that we can pick up three points. In football, it can change really, really quickly.
“We need to focus on ourselves, we can’t be looking at what other teams are doing. You never know, we could look back at the end of the season and this week could be the best week of our season.”
