RUFC - Moore after the fourth defeat in a row

RUFC - Moore after the fourth defeat in a row

Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore says he is like a tape recorder saying the same things at half-time and full time after today`s two-nil loss at Morecambe.

Speaking to Radio Sheffield Moore said he was disappointed after the game, 'Spineless,` was the word he used for his team.

'The fans have a right to moan. If I`d stood behind there and seen one or two of the performances the players have put in I`d moan.

'All I asked them to do was go out there and put a shift in. But it looked like they`d all had a meeting and performing like that were trying to get me out. Now, I`ve picked those players and trusted them to go out, work their socks off, play for Rotherham United and keep us, at least, in that play-off position. And the defending, well it was like Fred Carno`s circus.

'You can`t legislate for the way the team are playing at the moment. I don`t think there`s a fear factor in there. Its individuals who are making the wrong decisions in the wrong areas. It`s all about getting that head of steam up, coming out of the blocks and putting teams under pressure, that`s what we`ve got to do. At the moment there`s a white flag flying and we need leaders, we need men who are going to dig in there.

'If you look at the last few games, when we`ve conceded one goal we`ve conceded another goal two or three minutes afterwards and that`s why we`ve said about getting two banks of four and keeping it safe and weather the storm and then we go for it. Today, we`ve spread the two young ones playing wide when we really needed to be tucked in and that little bit of inexperience that they`ve got has shown today.

'The difference between the two teams today was togetherness. They work hard, they might be limited on ability but they have a go and work as a unit and as a group and I don`t see that in the players at Rotherham.`
