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

RUFC - Moore 'fantastic' today

Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore thought that the performance at Oxford was 'fantastic' from his side.

Speaking to Radio Sheffield after the two-one defeat away at Oxford, Moore said, 'The heads are down in there and they're on the floor but I thought it was a fantastic performance from there today.

'You know we were only ten men from so early on in the second half and we still pressed and got forward. OK they've have a couple of breaks but we've been brave and kept the three at the back, four across and two up front. But we had the effort, the determination and commitment and we've been punished really for a lack of concentration from a bit of inexperience from the young kid. It's a shame really because I thought his all round game was good.

'But to lose Ryan Taylor and then have the lad sent off and then Woggy (Andy Warrington) nearly saved a penalty, it's just our fate at the moment. But, we've got to knuckle down and keep going and if they play like that with that determination and commitment then it's got to change.'

Asked about the two penalty claims today, Moore said, 'I think he could have given the first one, though I'm disappointed Alf didn't score really because the lad's caught him, no doubt about that, but when he's fell on the floor and got up he's got an open goal to aim at and he's toe-poked it into the side netting.'

Talking about Nicky Law's goal today, Moore said, 'He's got great awareness and pace. His movement for the goal was fantastic and a great bit of football. But, he should have repaid the compliment to Omar in the first half instead of looking for Alfie. The number of times he looks for Alfie when it's on for other people well you pull your hair out with him sometimes. But he's a fantastic player and he glides across the top and I thought he was outstanding today and I don't think they could live with him.'
