RUFC - Moore 'frustrated and angry'

Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore left the field at Don Valley today with booes ringing out from the crowd after he saw his team lose a one-nil lead to end up with a draw.

Speaking to Radio Sheffield after the draw with Hereford, Moore said, 'We should have been out of sight. How we weren't four up at half time is beyond me. We had so many chances but we know what happens if you don't take those opportunities when they come. Then to get done with a goal on ninety minutes from a nothing ball in the box. I know they had a little bit of pressure in the second half but I don't think Andy (Warrington) had a save to make. No disrespect to Hereford, but we should be burying teams like that here.

'We weren't ruthless enough and maybe I need to do something about that. How some of those balls have gone across the box and nobody's got on the end of them, I don't know. There's been some magnificent balls in from set plays where we've hit the bar and should have scored and when you are creating and don't score then you have to be rock solid. One of the centre halves has made a wrong decision, he cleared it when he should have left it for someone else and we've been punished. They have to learn from this and maybe it will be a blessing in disguise for us.

'Nick Fenton has got a dead leg but I thought MJ's (Mark Joseph) done well and we've dealt with most of the balls but we got roughed up a bit in the second half when the big lads came on. They dictated to our centre backs what they were doing and where they were going but you've got to be better than that - you can't be defending the edge of our box at home, we should be going down the other end and finishing them off. It was very frustrating.

'Alfie (Adam Le Fondre) needs to work a bit harder. We know he's going to get goals but the two strikers have to link up better. Popey (Tom Pope) looked a little naive today but he's still a young lad learning his trade. Drewe (Broughton) came on and was winning headers but there was no one going beyond him.

'What looked like a comfortable job three weeks ago gives you a bit of a headache when you look at it.'

Our forum is dead, we have more action under the actual articles, but I've replied to you on Vital Blades. I went, reminded me of Cheltenham.

At least you made the effort to go, shep, thanks for that - I actually heard a few people who said they were Blades around - one asking for the nearest pub!

Now then, you'd be surprised at my links with the Millers ;)
