Rotherham United lost central-defender, Michael Raynes this afternoon, who was stretchered off with a bad looking knee injury. It also looked as though they could have lost stand-in skipper, Johnny Mullins as well, Manager, Andy Scott told Radio Sheffield after the one-all draw with Northampton at Sixfields.

'John Mullins hyper-extended his knee,' Scott said, 'and he was struggling with that. Alarm bells were going off when it looked like he might have to come off as well as Raynes because we would have had real difficulties with that. Fortunately he got through the game.

'But I thought Jason Taylor did terrifically well when he went to centre-half. Given the fact that we've had a lot of injuries at the centre-back position, we've looked at Jason in that position and pencilled him in just in case something did happen. Jason is aggressive, wants to win the ball and organises well from the back while seeing everything in front of him and he did well.

'Fozzy (Luke Foster) came on and did well and Danny (Harrison) did well in front of him because Akinfenwa was a bit of a handful.'

Speaking about Alex Revell, Scott said, 'Revs is winning a hell of a lot of flicks and we aren't reading them at the moment which is something that we've got to work on. We've spoken about it and about maybe changing something and about the set-up but, in fairness, when Grabbs (Lewis Grabban) got on the end of a couple it looked like we were going to score and when Chrissie Holroyd came on it looked like he was going to get on the end of them as well. Revs is a real danger in the air but we could do with him winning some headers in the box but it's just not happening at the moment.'

Talking about the own goal Conrad Logan gave away and then the magnificent save from Akinfenwa later in the game, Scott said, 'That's the life of the goalie. You make a mistake and it's a goal, you make a good save and help us out. Then, he got booked for being stamped on.

'Then Luke Foster gave away a free-kick from winning a header which is amazing how that happened. He's got a split eye. He won the header, the bloke head buts him and it ricocheted off the bloke and goes out for our throw-in and they get a free-kick.

Asked about Holroyd coming on for Grabban, Scott said, 'I just wanted a change. I wanted a bit of spark and Chrissie did well the other night when he came on and he did well today. He looked sharp, got on the ball and made things happen for us and with his attributes you are always likely to sneak a goal.'
