RUFC - Moore post Bury
Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore thought that today`s draw with Bury at Gigg Lane was a good point for his side.
Speaking after the game to The Official Site, Moore said, 'Bury are a good side. They`ve got some pace in their side and the wingers are very clever and after going one down it`s a decent point for us.
'Gifting them the goal the way we did was disappointing but we showed enough spirit to come back and I think a draw was probably the right result
'There was nothing in the game in the first half and it looked like it was going to end nil-nil then Exodus just took a chance, which is alright if you are going to be there for it but give Lowe credit for the way he`s played and got the goal.
'We were hanging on a little bit at the end and I just wished we`d have kept the ball a little better.
'We changed it a bit today. Popey (Tom Pope) got injured yesterday in training, he`s done his calf, but he should be alright to train Monday and Tuesday and Ryan Taylor isn`t really fit to be involved and we need to work on his fitness. Tom Elliott declared himself fit but he hadn`t done enough in his fitness work so, in the end we went four-four-three.
'I thought we handled the wingers quite well today because they are clever. It was a good solid performance without being magnificent and we got a hard earned point.
Bury brought on Manchester United loanee, Nicholas Ajose on the hour mark and Moore said, 'He`s a clever player who can turn people and has some pace and he wouldn`t be playing for Man United if he couldn`t play would he.`
Talking about Nick Fenton and Mark Bradley, who I thought both had good games today, Moore said, 'I thought they did well. Fenners needed a game and Bradders will improve with his fitness.
'Ryan Cresswell`s granddad died yesterday and he didn`t feel he could play and our condolences go out to him and his family
