RUFC - Millers Manager praises team

RUFC - Millers Manager praises team

Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott had praise for the way his side played as a team today in the three-two win over Hereford at Edgar Street this afternoon.

Speaking to Radio Sheffield Scott said, 'Johnny Mullins was outstanding. He got the two goals but some of the headers and blocks as well he was fantastic. But that's what we want to do, we want to defend for our lives but we want to do it when we are two-nil up so we can go three or four up and not give teams a chance. He was a doubt to come out for the second half and we were possibly going to make three changes, but he wanted to give it a go.

Jon Harley wanted to try and play on, but he'd lost the vision in one of his eyes so we had to make that change. He was in a collision in the first half when he went to block a ball and he got an elbow in the face. He was sick on the pitch and he'd got blurred vision in his left eye. He wanted to stay on but I made the decision for him - people's health is a lot more important than anything else and if he'd got another blow to the head who knows what could have happened. I'm prepared to look after the players and do the right thing by them.

'Raynsey (Michael Raynes), whose still got a problem with his leg did very, very well in the second half and I thought Sam Wood was outstanding against a quick winger I thought he was magnificent for us today.

'I was a bit disappointed really, because we'd worked on a few things this week with the front two and it didn't come off. Brett (Williams) looked a little bit jaded, maybe with the pitch being heavy. But he got a great chance in the second half and the 'keeper made a good save. Revs (Alex Revell) works his socks off and he's desperately frustrated that we are conceding the goals and he's not scoring. At half-time I told him to leave his frustrations until Monday and let's get that third goal and win the game and then we can analyse what we've done. In fairness to all the players they did that.'
