RUFC - Scott didn't enjoy yesterdays game at all

Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott said, after the three-two defeat by Swindon Town yesterday, that he hadn`t enjoyed the game at all.

Speaking to Radio Sheffield, after losing their first game of the season, Scott said,` We didn`t play well from start to finish. I think we deserved a draw out of it. There was a certain penalty at two-one up and if we score that then it`s probably game over. And Schofield made a stupid decision and got himself sent-off and then we don`t mark at the set-piece and allow Connell to score the second goal and we`re on the back foot. We made some poor decisions defensively and kept on playing backwards in the first ten or fifteen minutes and putting ourselves under pressure and didn`t recognise how well Revell was playing and got nothing out of it. But, we`ll pick ourselves up because we`ve showed our quality in going forward by scoring two goals away from home.

'You wouldn`t believe it but we`ve worked all week at Matt Ritchie coming on his left foot and stopping crosses, moving out and getting a good line and the third goal optimised the fact that they didn`t do what we wanted them to do.

'We scored a couple of set-pieces that we`d worked on in training, the second one worked a treat but we conceded from a poor corner and Raynesy (Michael Raynes) should have marked him and didn`t.

'The game was very stop-start and it probably didn`t warrant the two sending offs or the amount of bookings it had.`

To be fair, I think our players looked stunned at what was going on around them for most of the game
