'If It's Football, It's Vital'

RUFC - Moore 'defend like last week and we lose'

Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore says that tomorrow`s game is going to be tough and if we defend like we did last week against Burton we will lose.

Speaking to MillersPlayer Moore said, 'Barnet at home is always a tough game and I think it`s their home form that keeps them up. It`s a tight ground and there will be two and a half thousand there if you`re lucky and if your mind`s not right and you`re not up to it you`re going to be in big trouble.

'They are an attacking minded side and usually play four-four-two with two wide men. They`ve got Phil Walsh on loan from Dagenham who`s six foot two and Kabba who`s bright and can score at this level so it won`t be easy but there are no easy games.

'It was a great result down there for us last season and we defended well and we took six points of them last season and I hope we can do that this season

'We`ve got to go there and produce and show that we have a better team than Barnet.
If we get on the ball and pass it like we can pass it then we should win but it`s going to be a tough old game. But if we defend like we did last week and invite teams on, especially at Barnet with the slope, then they`re going to come at you.`

Talking about the 'famous` slope at Underhill, Moore was asked if he preferred to go up it first half or second. 'I don`t think it makes any difference,` he replied. 'There was a slope at Millmoor and, when I was playing, we always preferred to go up it first half. What we`ve got to make sure is that we defend well because we`ll come under pressure down slope but I know what the back four can do because they`re all good players and we`re trying to mould them into a decent back four. What we`ve got to do now, with the help of Woggy (Andy Warrington) is that we keep some more clean sheets.`
