RUFC - Moore post Alfreton

RUFC - Moore post Alfreton

Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore thought his team looked 'leggy` after the two-nil defeat to Blue Square side, Alfreton Town last night.

Speaking to MillersPlayer, Moore said, 'We`ve worked the lads hard in training this week and I think it showed tonight because they looked leggy.

'But there`s no sob story here. I told them that these lads (Alfreton) have been working and then come here and played tonight. Yes, it was disappointing for us but, all in all, pre-season is all about getting fitness levels up and the lads did look like they`d been working hard in training.

'We`ll keep it easy for the next couple of days, take them swimming, which isn`t easy, it`s physical for an hour, and I think the water is probably going to be the best thing for them.`

Moore said he was disappointed with the second goal that came from a corner, 'To be fair it wasn`t even a corner but Ashworth should have dealt with it. But, before that happened, Alfie (Adam Le Fondre) has got in and who`d have thought he was going to miss the two he did tonight? But, you can see how sharp we are up front. Hopefully Tom (Elliott) is going to be fit and we`re still trying to bring in a striker because Popey (Tom Pope) won`t be ready until September time and we`re still waiting on Ryan (Taylor) to see how he`s going to be. I hope Tom is going to be OK for Saturday and that we`ll see a bit of him and Alfie linking up because we`ve not been causing a threat when we`ve been playing Kevin (Ellison) up there and Marshall up there and Law up there and there`s been no real presence to help Alfie out.

'I think the three in midfield have all done really well and it`s going to be one of the hardest decisions I'm going to have to make. Jaybo (Jason Taylor) has impressed me and he`s knuckled down

Talking about Stephen Brogan, who played his first ninety minutes of the pre-season, although he played carrying a thigh strain, Moore said, 'I thought he did alright and looked nice and bright and sharp and wanted to get involved and he`s proved that there is a part for him to play here.`
