RUFC - Moore 'Fantastic Performance'
Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore said that it was 'just what was needed' after the Millers one-nil win at Barnet this afternoon.
Speaking to Radio Sheffield Moore said, 'It was a fantastic performance today and it puts us in a great position. I was pleased that we defended when we had to although we did sit just a little bit deep and I wish we could just have picked them off - because that's what good teams do.
'The clean sheets are a big thing and we've got back to doing that but I'm sure, before the end of the season, we are going to give someone a good hiding.
'I thought Kevin Ellison was magnificent today. His goal was a good goal, he's gone by people, he's worked hard and he's moaning and groaning at people.'
Talking about subbing, Abdulai Bell-Baggie, who himself had come on for Josh Walker, his manager said, 'We put Abs on but then they (Barnet) threw caution to the wind and he was running about so we've had to sub the sub, which is the first time I've ever done that as a manager. But, it had to be done because Abs inexperience could have told.'
(Ed Note - No, sorry Ronnie, cannot see that at all. This is a kid who can run with or without the ball and who, in my opinon, should have been left on to run at the Barnet players and get under their skins today)
With Bournemouth winning today, the Millers will have to make do with the play-offs and a possible day out at Wembley and Moore said, 'We've just got to close our hands on it. We can't get third now but we'd like to get the fourth spot and possibly a Wembley appearance.'
