RUFC - Moore 'nice to have two home games'

Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore is pleased that the teams` next two games are at Don Valley, after losing five away games on the trot.

Speaking to MillersPlayer before this evening`s game against Accrington, Moore said, 'I don`t know what it is away from home. We have been a little bit more adventurous away from home but we tried to tighten up a bit on Saturday although the ten men situation didn`t help. You have to write it off as a one off because I honestly believe with eleven players we wouldn`t have lost that game.

'So, yes, it`s nice to get home games but there are no easy games. It`s about grinding out results and it`s no good playing well and not winning. We just want a scruffy tight win to kick things off for us.

'These two games are difficult games for different reasons. Accrington are a neat passing side that want to play and we certainly need to be taking three points from Shrewsbury on Saturday so they are two very important games for us.

'Accrington were two goals down at Stevenage, and we know what it`s like to play there, and then they scored two goals in the last two minutes. John Coleman`s got a good squad of players with great team spirit and they are fighters, warriors and never know when they are beat. People think they are a long ball side but they`re not. It will be an interesting game and a footballing game and, hopefully, a win for us.

'The fans have been good just recently at home but we need to light the blue torch paper and the crowd need to get behind us. And I`m sure that will happen. Everybody wants the same thing. If we don`t perform you expect to get a bit of stick.

'We all want to be in that top three but its May when it really counts. We`ve had a little wobble and we need to put the away form right and we`re off and running again.`
