'If It's Football, It's Vital'

RUFC - Scott 'we got a little bit of luck'

Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott said he was pleased with the three points and particularly the clean sheet against AFC Wimbledon yesterday.

After the game at Don Valley, Scott told Radio Sheffield that it was a strange sort of game. 'It never really got going for any length of time,' Scott said. 'We had a couple of good chances in the first half and they had a couple of good chances and it sort of died out a little bit. And it was the same in the second half really when they had some good chances where we sat off them and allowed them to play.

'It wasn't pretty at times and there were times when we could have brought the ball down and passed better and we know that and, in an ideal world, we'd do that. In the first half I thought we'd got so much time to pick them off and we didn't use the stuff we've been working on in training and, if we had, I think we would really have taken the game to them. We didn't find our front players when there was lots of space to get the ball to their feet and we picked the wrong pass or over hit it or didn't see it early enough which is the frustrating thing.

'Our throw-ins were awful again. So there's plenty for me to work on.

'In the second half they started defending deeper and then they got a bit nervy because they haven't had a decent result for a while and we got a bit nervy because we hadn't had a clean sheet for a while.

'Wimbledon are a good side and we know that but they didn't take their chances and we've had a good finish from a good break away and punished them.

'We didn't use the ball well and the players who usually use the ball pretty well weren't on the ball today. But, we've got a clean sheet and a win which keeps us ticking along nicely. We're on a decent run at the moment, even looking at the Crawley result, which has been our only blip in the league recently, our performance was excellent for the majority of that.

'It's actually the first game this season that we can say we had a bit of luck on our side and you need that bit of luck.'

Our throw-in's were dreadful! I thought we'd forgotten we were playing in red!
