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

RUFC - Pope 'Goal before half-time killed us'

Rotherham United striker, Tom Pope says that the team need to be better at breaking teams down after the one-all draw with newly promoted Stevenage last weekend.

Speaking to Richard Wilson of The Advertiser, the former Crewe striker said, 'We have to take the responsibility for the performance. Stevenage won`t be the only team to come to Don Valley and play that defensively and we have to learn to deal with it or we won`t be where we want to be at the end of the season.

'The goal just before half-time killed us off a bit. We knew we had a one goal lead and that we maybe cold have just held on but it didn`t work out that way. However, grabbing a goal on the stroke of half-time is obviously a great time to score and we really should have held on to win the game.

'At the break the gaffer told us we weren`t playing well enough and said we had to imagine what we could do if we actually turned it on and went up a gear. Unfortunately, we couldn`t manage to do that.`
