Rotherham United Assistant Manager, Darren Patterson was absolutely delighted with the Reserves four-nil win over Scunthorpe at Parkgate yesterday when Marcus Marshall and Ollie Banks got two goals each.

'I thought we bossed the game from start to finish,' he told MillersPlayer, 'and there was a great intensity about our play and we played some very good attacking football.

'We had some older pro's out today which helped and their attitude was first class and they helped the younger boys who were very good as well.

'I was delighted for both boys who scored, there were some excellent goals. Games coming thick and fast have helped them and it bodes well for us with the first team because if they're needed they are match fit.'

Johnny Mullins and Michael Raynes played in the side yesterday and Darren said, 'We've asked an awful lot of Johnny Mullins. In an ideal world we'd like to give him five or six games but with the injuries we've had we've had to play him. He knows and we know he's not a hundred per cent but we've asked a lot and he's given it and he looked very sharp today. With Guy Branston not available for Saturday he must come into contention. I'm delighted to see Raynes back albeit he's still got a little niggle and he wasn't in full flow but against Robertson, who is a very good centre-forward, they both coped with him very well.

Speaking about trialist, David Elebert, Darren said, 'He's had sixty games in the SPL so he's obviously no mug. He hasn't played in a little while and has unfortunately he's found himself out of contract and that's surprised me watching him today. We are going to have a chat with him and take it from there but he did very, very well.'
