RUFC - Scott 'it was a team effort'

RUFC - Scott 'it was a team effort'

Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott said that his side certainly make it hard for themselves after going into a two-nil lead this afternoon but having to fight back to win three-two.

Speaking to Radio Sheffield after the win over Hereford, Scott said, 'We were absolutely cruising, I don't think they'd even had a shot on target when we went two up

'We talk about the goals we are conceding because they are the same the whole time. We show them, they nod their heads, we work on it in training and then it comes to the games and it's just amazing how it happens.

'But we showed some character today. In the last five or ten minutes we stood a lot of bombardment and long throws and set-pieces but, overall, I think in the second half we were comfortable. We were defending much better, although we still didn't do well enough on the ball, but, it's a tough place and the pitch was very soft and a bit dead and lifeless which makes it difficult. We'd put ourselves in a position where, if we'd stayed two-nil we'd have been more confident and been able to take the game to them but at two-two, you're on the back foot, the crowd are lifted and, all of a sudden, you're struggling to get a foothold on the game.

'At half-time we just got them in and calmed them down. I made a couple of changes that I felt we needed to do because I didn't think we were competent in the right areas. I felt we were too open and were too much gung-ho. We were attacking and, all of a sudden, we conceded two goals because we haven't organised at the back and we've allowed them to turn and run at us. We've made mistakes again and from being comfortable and looking like we were going to go on and get a third we were two-two and on the back foot.

'I said to them, before the game, I know we've got good individuals, I know we've got good ability but we need to be a team and I want to see a team who shows character and a team who show what they can do under pressure and we did that in the second half and everyone responded. And, I thought the three points was brought about by the team character that we probably haven't shown all the time recently.'
