RUFC - Moore 'no excuses'

RUFC - Moore 'no excuses'

Rotherham United Manager thought his side were very lucky not to be down to ten men during the second half of Saturday`s three all draw with Burton Albion at Don Valley.

Speaking after the game to MillersPlayer, Moore said, 'We defended much too deep in the second half and we were lucky not to be down to ten men. If we`d been down to ten we`d probably have lost the game, in fact, if we`d played another five minutes, we`d probably have lost the game.

'How on earth can we play like we did last week at Shrewsbury where we kept the ball all day then give it away so often today. I`ve told the back four we`re defending too deep and we`re not having it. They`ve got to push up and Woggy (Andy Warrington) has to get off his line and help.`

For the first of Burton`s goal, scored in the opening minute of the second half, Moore said his second defender was too deep and he said of the equalising goal, 'we were on the penalty spot and they played it to feet and we haven`t picked up on it. And, it was a ridiculous tackle for the penalty. Our two full backs were taken to the cleaners today by their two wide men.`

A suggestion was put to Moore that there might have been a foul on Adam Le Fondre before the tackle that gave the penalty away but the Millers` Manager didn`t believe that saying, 'I think Alf tried to make it look like a foul. He shouldn`t have been doing what he was, it was absolutely ridiculous to try and beat four or five men round there. It only needs a toe poke and it`s in the back of our net and as it happens it ended up going for a penalty.

'At the end of the day you can`t play, even with a three-nil lead, for just forty-five minutes. We`ve no excuses and I don`t think we played well.`
