RUFC - Moore pre Bradford
Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore says he wants to keep as many clean sheets as possible and was pleased with how his side defended as a unit against Chesterfield on Saturday.
Speaking to MillersPlayer, Moore said before the game against Bradford City this evening, 'Apart from the long term injuries they are all raring to go and all want to play.
'I`ve got a bit of a headache - do you leave the midfield alone? Do you tinker with one or two spots here and there? But, it`s nice to have a full solid squad of players to pick from.
'Bradford have got a fantastic squad of players and it will be a tough game. The problem they have at this time is that they`ve got an awful lot of injuries and once they`re back I don`t think Bradford are going to be too far off. Anyone expecting that we`ve just got to turn up and it`s going to be five or six then that just won`t happen. It`s a derby game and it doesn`t matter if you`re top of the league or bottom of the league these games are always meaty games`
Talking about the game last season, where the Millers managed to get back to one-one in time added on, only for City to go and score another, Moore said, 'It was a sickener. We got back to one-one and then fell asleep for their corner it was disappointing. But, at Bradford last season, we had a tremendous performance.
'We`ve got to make sure we go into the game with the right mental attitude and if we perform like we have done in the last few games then it`s a game we can win. We`ve got to make sure we are mentally strong and that we do the right things in the right areas.
'The crowd really got behind us at Barnet and I thought they were fantastic on Saturday. It`s a long time since we`ve had that sort of atmosphere and long may it continue.
'We had a great win on Saturday and we want to put the icing on the cake because, if we win this game, then there is every chance that come ten o`clock we could be top of the league.`
