RUFC - Moore talks about the FA Cup

RUFC - Moore talks about the FA Cup

Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore says that you couldn't ask for anything else than being at home in the FA Cup game against York City on Saturday.

Speaking to MillersPlayer Moore said, 'I think the FA Cup is a fantastic competition and we want to go as far as we can in it. The third round is the big one and every manager will be thinking and praying that they get through the first two rounds and then can we get a Man United or a Chelsea or a Liverpool. I'm sure our Chairman would love the third round of the FA Cup Man United away although I'm not to sure I would! But the financial gains from something like that is fantastic for the football club.

'But we've got to get through the first round. We had a problem last year when we were at home to Luton and everyone's thinking it's going to be easy but there's no easy games. If you attitudes not right then you get beat and we know that York haven't had the best of seasons up to now but they've got a new manager in there and they're changing the system they play so it will be an intriguing FA Cup tie. But, if we play to the best of our ability and we are a better team than them, then you win the game.'

Moore was reminded of the time the Millers had to beat Northampton to get a plum tie with Manchester United and he said, 'It would have been a fantastic cup draw for us. We went to Northampton and got a draw and then we get them at home and get beat. I always remember the Chairman, Ken Booth coming in after the game and saying, 'Well Ronnie, that's the fastest five hundred and odd thousand pounds that I've lost. But it was disappointing and it's about time we put that right and I'd love the opportunity to go to Anfield again or go to Old Trafford in the FA Cup because it's the only opportunity you get and it's great for the players. We were gutted last year when we lost to Luton because we got a right good hiding away from home. We need to come out of the blocks on Saturday and play without any fear.

'It is an important game and I will play the best eleven who I feel are our best eleven players at the present time. Marcus Marshall has been fantastic for the Reserves but can he do it on the big stage? Maybe it's time for us to have a look at that because both wingers aren't playing particularly well. It may be that we have to look at a different way of playing.

'We've got to play at a high tempo and I'm fed up with hearing the word tempo. I thought defensive wise we were sound on Tuesday but it's just not happening in the attacking third. Cress (Ryan Cresswell) has just come back and he was a man mountain and as a captain he's fantastic and if three or four other players had played the way he played with a bit of heart, a bit of passion then we would certainly have won the game.'
