RUFC - Moore Post Northampton

Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore said that the one-nil win over Northampton this evening at Don Valley was a decent result.

Speaking to MillersPlayer after the game, Moore said, 'The most pleasing thing about today's game was the crowd. You don't really know what to expect the way we performed on Saturday but they all got behind us tonight.

'I think we deserved the win tonight. We were a little bit lucky perhaps with the penalty save but it was a great save from Woggy (Andy Warrington). It was a silly tackle in the box and you give a pen away and you think 'here we go again' and he makes the save. And, it was pleasing to keep a clean sheet.

'We changed the way we played a little bit today and we've come and had a go. We put Marshall up front, though we never really got him in the game because we didn't play enough decent balls over the top for him to get after. He missed a couple too, and he seemed to spend ten minutes worrying about that, but I've told him that you do miss them and you've just got to get on with it and not be afraid to miss.

'I was disappointed that Danny (Harrison) got sent off. I thought they really should have put the ball out of play because there was a hell of a tackle on Alf (Adam Le Fondre) on the half-way line, and we've given the ball away on the edge of our box and they've counter attacked then there's two sending offs. Danny's made the wrong decision at the wrong time and he's out for three games now, which gives us a bit of a headache. It means we will have to change the shape of our play for one lad being ill-disciplined, but, he's done brilliant for us, so I'm not going to complain too much.

'We limited Northampton to very few chances really and Woggy hasn't had a lot to do. Just before half-time Woggy signalled that he wanted to come off, he's had a bit of a knee problem, but we said, look there's only five minutes to go and at half-time Denis (Circuit) has had a little go at his leg and he's got through the last forty-five minutes.'

The Millers are back up to fourth place tonight and looking like they might well make the play-offs and Moore said, 'We're looking OK, we're not looking brilliant but we're looking solid. And it's about results now.'
