RUFC - Moore 'it's soul destroying'

Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore said he was disappointed after the draw against Northampton Town at Don Valley this evening.

The Millers were two up in nineteen minutes only for the visitors to score two before the twenty-fifth minute and Moore said, 'The supporters must be pulling their hair out because I am.

Speaking to Radio Sheffield, Moore said, 'We scored two fantastic goals but then we shoot ourselves in the foot. But when you're two-nil up you can't concede like that. The first one was a daft free-kick and the balls been played in the box, the lads got a toe to it and it's gone in the back of the net. And straight from the kick-off they're down the other end and Coid is over covering and the balls been played inside and he smashes it into the back of the net. I mean the way we played against Crewe and how we defended then we come out today and defend like that.

'It's soul destroying when we're working hard and then they get goals like that which they haven't had to work for. Second half we've hit and missed really without creating too many chances or asking too many questions from the 'keeper.

'We've got to keep going and believing that we can win games. I mean, that was more or less the side that played on Saturday and, alright, we've had to make a change at the back that doesn't help but Greeny (Jamie Green) has come in and done alright.

'They're inconsistent though we had the same problems last year. I think it was eight or nine games we'd drawn here but when you're two up, and it doesn't matter whether you're playing well or playing badly, you've got to keep the ball.

'We've got to learn. We've been three up here and drawn three-three and we've been two up today which is four points that would probably have put you at least second in the league. Some of our defending is naïve and we can't defend like we've defended tonight and win game. There's a lot to work on, there's no doubt about that.'
