RUFC - Moore pleased with win today

Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore said he thought it was a great team performance today and that they deserved the three points.

Speaking to MillersPlayer after the two-one win over Lincoln City, Moore said, 'I thought it was a good game - a bit indifferent at times when we gave the ball away too easily but times when we played really well.

'But, give them (Lincoln) a bit of credit. They're down to ten men and they're hanging on there.

'We gave away a silly goal which disappoints me and the nerves started to get to the lads but, overall, I think we deserved the win. At times we played too many long balls from the first touch and we need to get it down and pass it on a more consistent basis.

'We played some great football at times and one move there was ten or twelve passes and we've gone right across the box. Popey's whipped it in and Alfie got his toe to it but couldn't direct it. And we need more of that. We said at half time that they were down to ten men and we've go to make them work and make them run.

'I'm pleased with the performances of both Danny Harrison and Nicky Law. They both have bundles of energy. We moved Nicky in a bit towards the end of the first half and he was in a great position where he could bomb on and influence the game for us.

'It was a great finish from Gary Roberts for the second goal but he's really got to get a better celebration than that!

'It was a great team performance with no real stars.'

Moore finished with a word about the fans, 'it was very vocal today. It helped getting an early goal and playing the way we did in the first half especially. The fans want exactly what we want and that's to see a proper Rotherham United team running their socks off and working hard and that's what we've had for the last two games.'
