RUFC - Scott 'never got a grip of the second half'

Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott was obviously disappointed after he saw his side lose a two goal lead last night and just come away with a point.

Speaking to Radio Sheffield after the draw, Scott said, 'Apart from a ten minute spell I thought we controlled the first half. But we never got a grip of it in the second half.

'But, we played too deep. At half-time we spoke about not going too deep but we made the pitch too big and we allowed it to go to their front man`s feet and then we`re chasing. We created a few chances in the first half but never got hold of it in the second half and when you invite pressure on like that then something has got to give.

'The disappointing thing is that we`ve got experienced players and they`ve been told what to do and, even when we had the ball, we weren`t as comfortable on it as we were in the first half. When things are going wrong the players have to take the bull by the horns and continue to do what we`ve asked them to do. Unfortunately, that didn`t happen. They`ve given me their all but I think when we start tiring that`s when we start making mistakes, but we are tired because we were making the pitch too big, too early. Everyone has to take responsibility but we didn`t defend on the edge of the box, again but we are only two weeks in and, unfortunately, it takes a long time to sink in.

'But, we were on the end of some dubious decisions but, you can make excuses all you like, I didn`t think we got much at all.`

Asked about striker Adam Le Fondre being back in the starting eleven, Scott said, 'He showed glimpses of what he can do and we know he can score goals but I want him to be more of a team player. I`ve spoken to him about that and good goal scorers are good team players as well and I`m sure he will get that.`
