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

RUFC - Patto frustrated and disappointed

Rotherham United Caretaker Manager, Darren Patterson said that he was extremely frustrated and disappointed after yesterday`s three-nil loss to Crawley Town.

Speaking to Radio Sheffield after the loss, Patterson said, 'We absolutely battered them in the first half and should have been three or four-nil in front. But, we couldn`t convert our chances and got done with a soccer-punch.

'I`m a little bit disappointed that we conceded such a sloppy goal so early on in the second half.

'I`ve come here to win, not to draw, so we had a bit of a gambol and the two lads who came off hadn`t particularly done anything wrong but we put three forwards up front to have a go and see if we could get back in the game. We created chances but, unfortunately, couldn`t convert any and then conceded another soft goal.

'Some of the football we`ve created at times we carved them open. We had some very good chances which we should be taking. Goals change games as we all know and, I think if we`d got the first today, we`d have gone on to win the game comfortably. We came here in a good frame of mind, with confidence and in good spirits, looking to win a football match and, I`ve got to say, that`s what we tried to do and I wouldn`t compare this game with the way we played at Oxford at all.

'We are all responsible for scoring goals as we are all responsible for keeping them out. With the chances we created we`ve got to be scoring but we aren`t putting that burden on anyone personally. We are looking for everyone to step up and be the one to take the chances.

'The players are gutted. Honesty wise, no one can stand there and say they didn`t try today, they`ve given everything. The preparation and approach to the game was, as usual, first class. I was really pleased how we started the game and how we played because we said we`d go at them which we did but we just couldn`t score. We`re employed to go with the highs and lows. You win comfortably in mid-week and you looks like it was a comfortable win but it was anything but that.

'We`ve got to make sure that the belief is still there and we will keep going.`

Speaking about Crawley Town, Patto said, 'Let`s not kid ourselves. That is an expensive front line. Look at the bench they brought on. They`ve got a huge budget here and, credit to the Manager and the staff, because they`ve done a good job. They`ve bought well and they`ve done well.`
