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

RUFC - Moore praises defence

Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore knew his team had been in a tough old game against Macclesfield Town at Moss Rose this afternoon and thought his team got out of jail as early as the first minutes.

Speaking to Radio Sheffield after the two-nil win, Moore said, 'I think we've had two very different wins. We totally dominated the game on Saturday but I thought we were off it a little bit today. There was loads of effort and loads of commitment but we just didn't keep the ball as well as we did the other day.

'We got out of jail in the first minute when the lad really should have scored but it was nice to get that little bit of luck. And, I don't know if there should have been a penalty as well but we claimed for one and they claimed for one so that probably evened that up.

'But I think out back four were superb today and it's three great points for us because it's a difficult place to come. I took a gamble today. I could have put Luke (Ashworth) in but I've left Johnny Mullins in there with Nick Fenton and brought Dale Tonge back who did nothing wrong, when you consider how long he's been out.

'But Fenton was fantastic. He could have had a goal in the first half when a little toe poke would have done. But he looked about twenty-one when he scored because no one was catching him! I just wish he'd have done that at Wembley because that celebration was a Wembley celebration! He's done brilliant for us, no doubt.'

The Millers clocked up their third clean sheets in a row today and Moore said 'That's what we want and, we've won games without Alfie (Adam Le Fondre) scoring so that puts that one to sleep.'
