Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore didn't think that Shrewsbury were two goals better than the Millers last night in what he described as a 'scrappy, awful game.'
Speaking to MillersPlayer after the two-nil defeat, Moore said, 'We defended too deep all game and I don't really think they threatened our goal all night. I certainly don't think they were two goals better than us. And just because we came here and lost, it doesn't make us a bad side.
'I can't fault our work effort but we lacked spark. We haven't got the ball wide in those wide areas and we haven't tested the 'keeper, who made his debut today, and who's come and taken some clean balls without anybody having an effect on him. And then, when we've had half chances we've not hit the target.
'Gary Roberts got on the ball a bit but we've not seen Lawsy (Nicky Law)in there and with the ability he's got he should be demanding the ball more. The back four were too deep all evening and we've got to finish our attacks behind their back four. Alfie (Adam Le Fondre) needs littls balls played inside the full backs and we didn't do that. Our use of the ball from the back today was poor. We pumped too many high balls up for Popey (Tom Pope). I didn't think Adam Rundle contributed much on the right but that's what you get with wingers they are inconsistent. In all, the midfield players haven't played the wingers in and the wingers haven't got by anybody to produce anything.
'And if Alfie's not scoring then who is going to score? I mean, Kevin's (Ellison) got seven goals but we want to see Popey getting on the end of things. We want to see the centre-halves getting up there and getting a cut on the head from a set play. We're not ruthless enough in their box and that's a worry.
'You know, every team in this league is inconsistent and that's why maybe half a dozen teams think they have a chance of getting out of this division.
'We've been on a lovely little run and now we have to roll our sleeves up and go on another.'
