Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore thinks that the practice of set-pieces in training has paid off.
Speaking to MillersPlayer Moore said, 'We love doing set plays. But, you know what players are like they hate standing about in training and if you do it for too long they lose interest. So, we've been doing it in little spurts, little half-hours and it certainly seems to have paid off.
'The quality of the ball on Saturday from set-plays was magnificent and it was put in the right areas and everything was spot on. We knew we were taller and stronger than they were so it was vital that we put the balls in the right areas and to score from three set-plays was pleasing.
'To win the game from a long throw, which they will hate because people hate losing to a long throw, but when the throws from Ex (Geohaghon) then it's like a free kick. And then when you've got someone coming in as brave as Cress (Ryan Cresswell) well he doesn't mind cutting his head scoring a goal that's what you need and I believe he'll get us ten goals this year. The other pleasing thing for me is that the other centre-half, Ex, got a goal and I think the last time two centre-halves scored was Swailes and McIntosh and we've got two lads who are very similar to them now. Last year we never really had the desire to go in and head balls in the right area this year we've got that and the pleasing thing is the quality of balls coming in. Kevin Ellison has got a fantastic left foot and I'm waiting for him to score from the edge of the box and maybe on Saturday we can show people what we've done and what we've worked on an awful lot. Andy Liddell is nice and bright and does one or two things with them and Warney (Paul Warne) throws his little bit in and we've got a few free kicks on the edge of the box that hopefully Ellison with his left foot or Lawsy (Nicky Law) with his right will put one into the back of the net sooner rather than later.'
