RUFC - Moore Post Chesterfield

RUFC - Moore Post Chesterfield

Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore said, after the win away at Chesterfield, that it was a 'typical derby game that we just about shaded.`

Speaking to MillersPlayer the Millers Manager said, 'I think we had the better chances of the game. The one from Alf that got caught between the 'keeper`s legs and Kevin Ellison had a good chance just before half-time.

'Popey`s worked his socks off. He`s won a lot of headers and we thought he was tiring but kept him on and it was a great finish for the goal. And what a time to get it! And I`m pleased for Popey because I think that`s his first goal since August in the league and hopefully it will be like the buses now - and his goals will keep coming. There are parts of his game that needs improvement but his enthusiasm is second to none and all he has to do now is polish up a bit on his touch and more goals will follow.`

Once again, Moore spent the majority of the game, sat in the director`s box with Jimmy Mullen and Steve Thornber running things from the bench. 'It started on Saturday,` he said, 'and, for some reason, you are calmer sat there. I sat there when we played Barnet and we won 3-0, I`ve sat there on Saturday and we won 2-1 and I`ve sat there today and we`ve won again so I hope I`m sat there until the end of May.

Speaking about the win, Moore said, 'at least tonight, I didn`t hear, 'you`ll never beat the Spireites.`
