RUFC - Moore frustrated

Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore was furious with referee Grant Hegley after the game this evening at Valley Parade that saw the Millers lose in the dying seconds to a controversial goal.

Speaking to Radio Sheffield after the game, a frustrated Moore said, 'It was cruel. You could tell by the reaction of our players and the Bradford players that they didn't think it was over the line. After the game I spoke to three of their players and they said it wasn't a goal. I also feel for the referee because he didn't think it had gone in but he has to go with his linesman because he's supposed to be in a better position. How you can be in a better position seventy yards away is beyond me. How could the linesman possibly see that the balls gone over the line from there? It's just impossible and a massive, massive decision.'

'In the second half we've steam rolled them and how we've not come away with a win is just beyond me.

'We should have had a stonewall penalty in the first half and then Callum (Kennedy) has hit a great shot and the 'keeper has tipped it onto the crossbar and over and he gives a goal kick and they nearly score from the resulting goal kick.

'The first half didn't start so well and we conceded a sloppy goal but got back in the game and from then I could only see us winning it. And, on another day, we really could have and should have won it. It was just that little bit of luck that hasn't gone for us today. You make your luck but how it hasn't broke for us in the box at the right time I don't know and there were a couple of little half chances that we maybe could have done better with. But the game was petering out to a draw and then to lose it to such a controversial decision is just heart breaking.

'I've thanked the players for their ethic commitment tonight. But, it's hard to come and speak to them when you've seen how committed and whole hearted they've been tonight. They've given everything.'
