RUFC - Scott takes positives from yesterday

Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott said that he was going to take positives out of the nil-nil draw with Macclesfield yesterday.

Speaking to Radio Sheffield after the game, Scott said, 'The conditions were difficult with the wind but we had the better chances.

'The first half was a little bit lack lustre from both sides and, although we had Jon's (Harley) shot and a couple of good crosses in the box but we didn't pass it as well as we wanted too. In the second half we passed it reasonably well maybe the tempo with the passing was a little bit slow but we were up hill and against the wind. When we got in the final third the crosses into the box didn't go in early enough but, having said that, we've probably had six or seven shots on target in the second half and Brett (Williams) shot smashed the crossbar and Grabbs (Lewis Grabban) brought a good save from the 'keeper with a header so we created lots of chances. It's frustrating that we haven't won the game but it's the second clean sheet in a row and a good basis to build on.

'Brett Williams looked good when he came on and we had other players who contributed but we didn't do it for ninety minutes. We said at half-time that we needed to up the tempo although we did well in the first half winning the ball back and restricting them to a few chances. Their formation made it difficult and we had to get the ball wide quickly and in the second half Tongey (Dale Tonge) and Jon Harley were able to get on the ball more and give it to our wide players better and we stretched them but once we got into the final third the cross didn't come in or it was in the wrong area.

'They make it very difficult for you with long throws and free kicks and corners. They're a very, very big side and it's always a tough place to come but there was a little bit more quality probably needed to get the three points.'
