RUFC - Scott reflecting on last weeks win

RUFC - Scott reflecting on last weeks win

Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott says there are lessons to be learned from the win over Bradford last Saturday.

Speaking to MillersPlayer Scott said, 'The chances we had and the 'keeper made a couple of fantastic saves in the second half we could have been even further ahead than the three-one. Their second goal came from a lazy off-side where we allowed them to pump the ball into the box and the hand-ball was hand-ball but wasn't deliberate, but I can see why he's given it. But then we sat back and didn't put any pressure on and then they got a corner and how the referee saw that hand-ball I do not know. He was behind loads and loads of players but he's given it and we got away with it.

'There's a lesson to be learned there. We should never have been in that position in the first place.

'Ideally we want to get the ball wide and get Danny Harrison and Danny Schofield on the ball. There was some fantastic passing movements last week especially one where Danny Harrison put the ball through for Tongey (Dale Tonge) and Schoey is orchestrating things and keeping the ball moving for us. The more those two play together the better they are going to become.

'We knew Brett Williams wasn't a hundred per cent match fit but I wanted to get an hour out of him and he put in a real good shift. He played seventy-five minutes and he was shutting down full-backs and chasing back at the end and that's what we want and everyone gave the commitment. He worked hard and he's quick and strong and good in the air as well. And it takes a bit of pressure of Revs (Alex Revell) as well with the physical side of it while allowing our wide players to get involved in the game. Both wide players scored, Revs scored as well and Schoey was involved in a couple of goals so the link up was terrific.

Asked if he thought there would be more confidence now the team are now six games unbeaten, Scott said, 'I think the individuals have had confidence but it's been about getting it as a group. We were having a time when we weren't having team performances or we were making individual mistakes and we have cut those out now and are a lot more solid. We're working better as a team now and it's still an evolving thing. People are coming and going and with the injuries we've had, the suspensions and the loanees not being able to play it's been difficult to keep a settled side. But, the lads who have played have done very, very well and we are on a good run at the moment.
