RUFC - Scott happy with players response

Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott said the crowd were great on Saturday at the Pirelli Stadium.

Speaking to Radio Sheffield Scott said, 'We keep talking about the word momentum but we didn't have it in the first half on Saturday. But, the good thing is that we responded very well and were back to our own ways in the second half.

'I think it would have been a fair scoreline if we'd gone in nil-nil at half time, really, and then we'd have fancied our chances to come out and win the game. We did anyway especially when we got the early goal but we got a little bit tired towards the end.

'The last fifteen or twenty minutes it was an end-to-end game, which wasn't what I really wanted but we gave it our all and had a right good go and the crowd were fantastic at lifting us. And, I think, in the second half we certainly lifted them as well. But it was great to have that atmosphere behind the goal we were attacking.

'At half-time I asked the lads why were we different from the last couple of games and they said 'tempo' but that's got to come from them. They knew where we were going wrong and it's up to them to change it, though it's a little bit difficult as the game is going on to do that but we can spark it and there can be people that trigger it off. And that's what we need because we can't keep dragging it on until half-time and changing it then. But they responded fantastically well and our energy and enthusiasm was terrific and we shut them down and made it difficult for them to play.'

Asked about Richard Naylor being substituted on Saturday, Scott said, 'He got a whack in the chest and was struggling to breathe and it's his third game in a week so we felt that the last five minutes we needed to be fit enough to be able to deal with Burton when they were putting balls forward. So we put Cress (Ryan Cresswell) on.'
