Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore reflected on the draw with Notts County after the game yesterday.
'We've got to learn to pass,' was his first thoughts. 'We've been practising passing drills all week but I thought half of our side were colour blind today. In midweek the Reserves were playing and passing the ball like Brazil and we want the first team to do that.
'For some reason, when Drewe (Broughton) plays we just want to put everything long and I said before the game not to keep sending long balls for him. We've got to pass it, we've got to get under, we've got to get in the box.
'I felt that we did limit Notts County to very few chances today which was better than last week. Our 'keeper made some good saves and we got in and made blocks and got our bodies there and I'm pleased with the way they did that. But I'm bitterly disappointed in what we've done all week and that it didn't happen with the passing.
'At the end you have to put your hand up and say 'we've played against a good side today and we've not lost.' We played Notts County and came away with a point and I'm happy with that.'
As a fan, sitting there, amongst the biggest crowd of the season, I thought both teams were poor yesterday - especially in the first half. I thought the Millers looked like they'd never played together before. The second half was better - not great - but better. As Ronnie Moore says the passing was dreadful. I lost count of how many times we lost the ball in midfield and the times a good ball was put through but no one was there to collect it. Personally, I think they need their confidences built up again because, from where I was sitting, it looked like the usual never-say-die attitude that this team have always had has rolled over and died.
