RUFC - Moore 'it was soul destroying'

Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore said he couldn`t really describe the feeling he felt after the team lost yesterday at Wembley.

Speaking straight after the game to MillersPlayer, Moore refused to give credit to Dagenham for their win yesterday, saying that it was purely bad defending. 'It was a poor head out for the third goal. It wasn`t closed down and the lads come and smacked it. Its soul destroying. I`ve been here before and won and I`ve been here and lost but, as the actual manager, to come here and go through all them emotions, it`s something I never want to happen again.

'We should be the side going up because we`re a better team but the result today says we`re not. When you get a minute on your own you think could you have done better and the answer is yes, we could have defended better.

'We`ve now found a foil for Alfie (Adam Le Fondre) but Alfie doesn`t get a kick in the game which is the way it goes when you play up front. Some days it`s your day, some days it`s not.`

Speaking about 'the foil`, Ryan Taylor, Moore said, 'Taylor shouldn`t be getting stick, he`s a local boy and they should love a local boy and the crowd got behind him today.`

Speaking about next season, Moore said, 'We have got to re-build the team. There are players out of contract and I`ve got some big decisions to make on their future. We need to let people go so we can bring new players in. It`s not easy but we have the backing from the Chairman to do that and hopefully I`ll make the right decisions and I`ll bring in some more players who will defend better than we did today. I`ve always known what I want to do and always known where we`re weak and it`s no good letting players go unless we are going to get better players in.`
