RUFC - Moore 'one person switched off'

RUFC - Moore 'one person switched off'

Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore didn`t quite know how to sum up the loss to Bradford at Don Valley today.

Speaking to Radio Sheffield, he said, 'How do you sum it up?

'We got back into the game with the penalty, and I thought it was a pen, but to get done with the last kick of the game. You have to be professional. There is no way that anyone gets a free header in the box from the last kick of the game. You just deal with it! That`s two set plays in two games now and the same guys been done for both of them. It`s absolutely criminal. Just one person`s switched off, everyone else has done their job. The balls come in and everyone has defended how they should have defended and we`ve let the lads get three yards in the box which is just rank defending. And, it`s alright him coming holding his hand up saying 'sorry it`s my fault` but what he`s got to do is stop it, just stop it.

'And, we haven`t been brilliant but we`ve had chances in the game but we`ve got done really by a break away where we haven`t defended it well, the lads come in, got the shot and scores. It`s so frustrating it`s untrue. Good sides don`t concede like that.

'There was times in the game when we played some decent stuff and had we got the goal earlier on, which we should have done, you know, we`ve had some decent chances where it was harder to miss, and if that had gone in you probably go on to score more. But it`s the last minute of the game and you just cannot do what we did. And, it`s not the group, it`s the individual who has let everyone down.

'We`ve lost the first two games of the seven this month and that can`t go on. It`s a long week now and we`ve got to think and reflect on the last kick of this game. It doesn`t matter how much training you do about crosses coming in, about corners or free-kicks in the last minute, the individual has to do the job that he`s told to do. That`s why we travel millions of miles a week to look at teams and come back and say this is their strengths, you`re our best header, you`re our best defender in this situation, you pick him up and if he doesn`t do it right it kills us.'

Asked about if players responded to public criticism, Moore said, 'They shouldn`t be playing if they can`t take criticism. You shouldn`t be a manager if you can`t take criticism. We all have it.`
