RUFC - Scott after today's win against Torquay

RUFC - Scott after today's win against Torquay

Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott saw his side win for the first time since he took over this afternoon at Don Valley and said that it was 'pleasing that the players had acknowledged what he`d said to them`.

After beating Torquay, who despite losing today have got into the play-offs, Scott told Radio Sheffield, 'We got a ninety minutes performance this afternoon but there were still several things that I wasn`t happy with, but I thought we played very well and created some very good chances. We got a bit slopping in a couple of areas when we switched off but, on the whole, I`m delighted

'There was a spell, especially in the first half, when we kept the ball well and opened them up nicely but there was a couple of times when the ball bobbled and things went wrong but they are doing what I`m asking them to do. If they make a mistake then I`ll ask them to do it again. I asked them to show that they should have been in the play-offs or better and I think they proved that today.

'The link up play between the front two was excellent today. We drew their midfielders out and Nicky Law had the beating of the right back every time. The distances between our players in midfield were good and we linked up well and passed it and got it to our danger players which is why we created chances. This gives us a lift and more confidence to go into the pre-season.`

Speaking about Ryan Taylor, who didn`t appear after half-time, Scott said, 'Ryan Taylor got a kick on the bottom of his foot and with him having a problem with his metatarsal before we didn`t want to keep him on and cause any damage. Hopefully it`s just a bit of bruising and he`ll be OK. He did very well in the first half and scored a good poachers goal.

'We were down on numbers today because Tom Pope and Mark Randall were ill and we didn`t want to risk Ian Thomas-Moore with his thigh and risk it tearing.`
