RUFC - Andy 'delighted' with the win on Saturday
Rotherham United 'keeper, Andy Warrington was rightly given the Sponsor`s Man of the Match on Saturday at Don Valley in the win over Chesterfield and also got the vote from Vital Rotherham and after the game he told MillersPlayer that he thought the fans would have gone home happy from the game.
'It was a really good game with both sides having good chances,` the thirty-four year old shot stopper said. 'The way both sides have been scoring goals we thought it would be a really high scoring game but we are pleased to come away with a one-nil win. We`re pleased with the performance but absolutely ecstatic with the result. It takes us above Chesterfield as well which is where we wanted to be.'
Asked about the crucial saves he made throughout the game, Andy said, 'The first one came just before half time when I thought we were on top and Tommy Lee, at the other end, has made a few good saves too. We came in at half-time feeling a bit unfortunate that we weren`t in the lead but having said that we could have been one-nil down.
'Both teams have rode their luck but it was always going to be a game where there would be chances and I think the supporters will go away having seen a really good game of football which was a credit to league two.`
Talking about his back-four, which is completely different to last season, the former Doncaster 'keeper said, 'Everybody hasn`t played together and it takes time to gel and I thought today was a good defensive performance but over the past three and a half years I`ve been here we`ve always had a good defensive record so when you get a new group of lads together it`s difficult but we work a lot on it in training and I think it`s starting to get there.`
Talking about skipper, Ryan Cresswell, Andy said, 'He came on loan during the first season I was here and you could tell then he`d got a little bit of something. He`s a good towering centre-half who reads the game well and he`s got a big future in the game and I think he`ll be a good signing for the club.`
He was asked if it was his best performance to date for the Millers and he said, 'I was pleased with the performance but the gaffer will tell you that`s what I get paid for but I was more delighted with the result and credit to the lads in front of me as well.`
