Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore made two changes to yesterday's line-up against Notts County. In came Andy Nicholas for Jamie Green and Drewe Broughton took Tom Pope's place up front.
Radio Sheffield asked Moore about the changes after the game yesterday and he said, 'I thought their two centre-halves were there to be beaten, which is why Drewe played. Unfortunately, we couldn't get Drewe up or Alfie (Adam Le Fondre) on the ball. If you don't keep the ball and you keep giving it away then you are going to be on the back foot.'
Andy Nicholas made his first start for the Millers this season but unfortunately was substituted in the first half after cutting his head.
'I don't think Nicholas has done anything wrong,' Moore said. 'He's come in and done well it's just unfortunate that he got that cut on his head. I didn't realise where you have to go here (Don Valley) to be stitched up. If I'd known it was going to take that long then I'd have changed it straight away. We were a bit fortunate, while we were down to ten men, that we didn't concede a goal.
'Nicholas will certainly get a run in the team. We have to work with Popey and the other strikers because improvement is needed. The work ethic isn't there and we have to make sure that both them up front are fitter. They're alright in the box but they can't chase full backs and if you can't do that at this level then you're in trouble.
'When I first came here I said there's no need to keep swapping and changing but I just felt that something hadn't been right. Now whether it's a bit of strength at the back or whether it's something up front I don't know and I didn't find any answers today going down to ten men.'
