RUFC - Patto 'great team ethic'

RUFC - Patto 'great team ethic'

Rotherham United`s caretaker Manager, Darren Patterson took charge of his last game this afternoon at Don Valley which saw a late headed goal from Ryan Cresswell get all three points for the Millers.

Speaking after the game to MillersPlayer, Patto said, 'We kept going and the spirit and the honesty from them today was fantastic and I was really pleased for them.

'I thought we started the game very brightly again and we didn`t get frustrated and kept playing our football. We kept moving it, I`d have liked it a bit quicker but there`s been two games in three days and we were a bit leggier than usual. I thought we bossed the first half and were unlucky not to go in winning. It was a great physical effort and great team ethic and it was a great goal, a terrific header.

'Cheltenham are a good side and Martin Yates and his staff have done a remarkable job there. I`m really pleased we dealt with their pace and power in the second half because we`ve had a lot of games where we`ve bossed it but conceded a sloppy goal so I was really pleased that we managed to keep a clean sheet. It was a real challenge because they`ve got a great midfield and I told the lads to go and match them and I thought we were better.

'I`m just delighted for the players because, at the end of the day, they are such an honest group and I`m delighted for the staff too.`

Asked how much he thought the players were playing for the new manager, who was in the stands this afternoon, Patto replied, 'I don`t think anybody was. They were playing for me, playing for themselves, playing for us and the new manager had nothing to do with that win.`
