Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott couldn't praise his players enough after the draw with Crewe at Don Valley this evening.

Speaking after the game to Radio Sheffield, Scott said, 'Crewe had to change their formation very early. They started with a three at the back and we were causing them all sorts of problem and they soon had to change to a four.

'Both full-backs were getting out, especially Bradders (Mark Bradley) and we were getting crosses in the box and Schoey (Danny Schofield) in that area was causing them all sorts of problems. He played in the hold and I think it worked very well. There were just a couple of stages in the first half when he dropped a little bit deep

'Prings (Ben Pringle) and Grabbs (Lewis Grabban) were really effective on both sides. On another day Revs (Alex Revell) could have had a couple of goals, one of them was just inches away and the 'keeper's dropped one and Jaybo (Jason Taylor) has nearly got there and we had one cleared off the line in the first half from a corner. It was just wave upon wave of possession and chances and I can't ask any more than they've done but we just need one to fly off someone's backside like it did at Dagenham.'

Asked about the penalty shouts, Scott said, 'We didn't really get too much today. Prings shout was similar to the one they got with a hand on the shoulder. Schoey got caught and stayed on his feet, if he'd gone down it's a penalty. At the end the fourth official said it had hit their players hand but it wasn't intentional but it was going in the goal so it's a bit of a strange one that.

'Then there was the bizarre decision when Sam (Wood) got booked when he got the ball first and then he caught the player. Well, what's he supposed to do? To be honest, some of the decision killed our momentum at times but we managed to regain the format and, at times, it looked like we were playing against ten men which is a credit to our players.

'Lewis deserved his goal because he's been plugging away and Revs deserved a goal tonight as well. I'm delighted for Ben Pringle. It's taken him a while to find his feet in the squad and his work rate was excellent tonight. Both him and Schoey are talented footballers and we want them in the team. In fairness to Prings he's had a few things going on behind the scenes in terms of his life and he's now enjoying his football and I'm delighted that he's taken his chance. I've thanked him because he's believed in me and in what we are doing and I've believed in him and that's all you can ask of a young player.'

Asked why Scott Griffiths wasn't in the squad tonight, Scott said, 'Scott has had something he's needed to sort out in his private life which is all I am saying.'

I'm pleased he let Pringle have a full ninety minutes today - easily man of the match for me

I thought Schofield did well and that both Pringle and Graban put in a good shift too
