RUFC - Moore 'It was an open game'

Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore told Radio Sheffield that he thought his side deserved to win Bury at Don Valley today.

Speaking after the goalless draw, Moore said, 'I thought they gave us everything today bar the icing on the cake. But, when you're on top you have to score.

I thought Bury had the best chance of the game when the centre-half put it wide and should have scored but we've had a lot of chances and didn't get the break. But I can't go and have a go at them because we needed a little bit of luck, especially when Lawsy's (Nicky Law) gone through, although the pitch played a lot in that, and has probably cost us. Then Ryan's (Taylor) gone through and then Alfie (Adam Le Fondre) but he looked at the centre-half and if he hadn't then he scores. We've had loads of chances and yes we are disappointed.

'Bury are second in the table but I think we are a better team.

'We've had a game plan today and worked to it and done well and for the neutral it would have been a good game to watch. Both sides were going for it, they've not come here and sat back, they wanted to have a go. It was a very open game but if it had been a boxing match I think we'd have just edged it.

Speaking about Bury's central defender, Efe Sodje, who made some poor tackles, Moore said he thought he was lucky to stay on the pitch after being yellow carded on twenty-seven minutes. 'He got out of jail.'

Talking about substituting Jason Taylor this afternoon, Moore said it was tactical and said, 'I just thought we looked tired in there and I thought can we get the fresh legs of Omar (Daley) to go and give us a bit of something. It was just to freshen it up more than anything and Omar's come on and shown what a danger he can be. We want to keep Omar, not just for now but do something for next season too.'

Asked about the incident in the first few minutes when it looked like the ball was over the line, Moore said his players weren't too sure about it. 'But,' he laughed, 'it would have been nice to have had the linesman from Bradford!'
