RUFC - Moore 'delighted - but not there yet'

RUFC - Moore 'delighted - but not there yet'

Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore was delighted, that at the half-way stage of the Play-Offs, his team came away with a win at Aldershot yesterday.

Speaking to Radio Sheffield after Adam Le Fondre had put the Millers into the lead, he said, 'I`m obviously delighted with the win because it looked like it was going to be nil-nil. But, nothings done. No-one is getting over-excited about anything because we are only halfway through and there`s still a lot of work to be done.

'They are a fantastic attacking side with a lot of flair in the side but if we defend like we did today, then we win the game because defensively we were outstanding today. We dealt with anything, limited them to very few chances and won everything in the air.`

Moore then spoke about a great first half last ditch tackle that Gavin Gunning had made, he said, 'It was fantastic. As a unit our back for were fantastic. There was the moment when the balls gone over the top, he`s lost it in the sun and Woggy (Andy Warrington) came out and made a save.

'And I think we should have had a penalty, though it was debatable. I thought there was a nasty tackle on Mark Lynch and I thought Morgan was very lucky that he didn`t get sent off but he wasn`t even booked.

Going on to talk about the goal that won the game, Moore said, 'Alfie is always going to get a chance in the game and he`s read the back pass and it was a fantastic finish. We`ve tried everyone up there with Alfie and Ryan Taylor has worked his socks off today and really, he`s had the best chance of the game with the header that he put just past the post. It would have been nice if that had gone in for him. He`s come back a different person from Exeter, I mean, I didn`t even know he could talk and I heard him talking the other day for the first time since I`ve been at the club!

Ronnie Moore said that the team weren`t all cheering and jumping up and down about the win because he knows it`s only the half-way mark. 'We`ve got to be professional about it. We`re ninety minutes away from Wembley and it`s a great opportunity for us.

'The fans were fantastic today. To come all this way down and get behind us like they did and let`s hope we can get some atmosphere at Don Valley on Wednesday.

'We haven`t won anything yet and if we think all we`ve got to do at our place is turn up it doesn`t happen like that. We`ve got to earn it and we`ve done that tonight. It`s going to be an open game at our place and I don`t think it will be a nil-nil.`
