RUFC - Patterson looks at positives in defeat

Rotherham United Assistant Manager, Darren Patterson must have been disappointed with the Reserves yesterday, losing three-nil to Middlesbrough at Roundwood, but he says he is looking at the positives from the defeat.

Speaking to MillersPlayer, Darren said, 'The only negative today was conceding the goals which were daft at best.

'I thought the first half was quite open and that we were very good against a good side and you have to credit Middlesbrough because, with and without the ball, they were at it. They've got some good players and got some very good youngsters coming through. I thought, after the first ten or fifteen minutes, without the ball our decision making was very good regarding when to press and when not to and when to let them have the ball and when to go hunting for it and I thought we did that very, very well and, if anything, had the better chances.

'The goal just before half-time is a give away and it changed the game a little bit. I thought the second half the lads stuck at it. The second goal was our mistake, we've given it away quite cheaply but you can't knock the finish because it was an outstanding goal and you could have had three goalkeepers in there and they wouldn't have saved it.

'And then we conceded a third one from a very similar position as the first. I thought, for the last ten minutes, the boys heads dropped a little bit which is understandable because they were being given a little bit of a run around then.

'But for the effort, you can't complain and I thought the lads kept going and there were positives there. There was ninety minutes for Raynesy (Michael Raynes) and Troy (Brown) and the senior pro's and a great learning experience for the younger ones.'
