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

RUFC - Moore 'we edged it'

Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore said, 'it was just one of those games` after the Millers put out Burton Albion in the Johnstone`s Paint Trophy at the Pirelli Stadium last night.

Speaking to Radio Sheffield after the two-one win, Moore said, 'It was a tight game and I think we scored with our first shot after seventy minutes.

'It was one of those games where they`ve left five lads out and we`ve left five lads out but, overall, I think we just edged it.`

Moore started with two up front, namely Tom Pope and Tom Elliott, both who are coming back from injuries. 'Up to half-time, I was disappointed with the front two and I let that be known. It wasn`t good enough. Both of them couldn`t get into it and the pair of them were giving it away so we couldn`t get our midfield players in and therefore we couldn`t get the wingers in. But, they did an awful lot better in the second half. But, you forget that they`ve been out a hell of a long time and we`re trying to get the cobwebs off which is difficult. I left Tom Elliott on a little bit longer but then you`re worried that he might pick up a little strain so we brought him off and to be fair to him, he was a bit disappointed when we brought him off but to be out for as long as he`s been out ninety minutes is a long time. We left Tom Pope on and put Warney (Paul Warne) on to give us a little bit of endeavour.

'Overall we got two goals and I think we could have had another penalty really - the first one on Kev (Ellison), though I`m not so sure the second one was a pen - but, at the end of the day, it evens itself out.`

Asked about the designated penalty taker with Adam Le Fondre not in the side, Moore said, 'I think Mark Bradley wanted it but as soon as the ball went Kev was after it and there was no way anybody else was going to get it! But he`s got a tremendous left foot and a great strike and really he was probably the best man for it.`

Talking about the opening goal scorer, Welsh International, Mark Bradley who has found it difficult getting into the side, what with a couple of niggly injuries and being called up for Wales, plus Jason Taylor and Danny Harrison playing well together, Moore gave him his first start at Burton and said, ''I thought he had some fantastic bits in play and some of his passing was outstanding. Then he got a little bit sloppy and gave one or two balls away but he`s definitely got a more than even chance to start on Saturday.`
