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

RUFC - Scott 'not enough quality balls'

Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott says that, after the two-one loss this afternoon, they now have a mountain to climb.

Speaking to Radio Sheffield after the loss at Oxford this afternoon, Scott said, 'There wasn`t enough quality in the final third in the first half although we got into some good areas. Then we made a really poor decision in injury time in the first half which puts you on the back foot. We are in a comfortable position forty yards away from their goal and instead of just sliding it down the outside for someone to make a run and getting a throw-in or a corner, one ball and they are in and goal. They are elementary mistakes but they cost you points.


'We never really got going for the first fifteen minutes of the second half and conceded another really poor goal and then you are up against it. We responded well but didn`t have enough quality on the ball in the right areas. Finally, in the last twenty-five minutes we got the ball out to Kieron (Cadogan) and got balls into the box. We got a penalty and had numerous chances after that but it was just basic errors that cost us the two goals again.

'We were confident that, if we could get them in at nil-nil at half-time we could work on it but it`s given us a kick in the teeth before half time and the second goal was just someone not doing their job which has cost everybody today.

'But we weren`t good enough on the ball and once we started pressurising higher up the pitch and getting about better we got into better areas. There was probably a fifteen minute spell in the second half when they bossed the game but after that we started making the right decisions but there were too many times when we didn`t defend and too many times when they got a break away because we made poor decisions and gave the ball away in bad areas.

'The season isn`t over but we`ve given ourselves an absolute mountain to climb.`
