RUFC - Evans not too disappointed

Rotherham United Manager Steve Evans said that he will be taking the positives out of the first loss at the New York Stadium.

Speaking to MillersPlayer after the Millers narrow loss to Heart of Midlothian on Saturday, the Millers Boss said, 'I think there were some good points and some not so good points. Hearts paid us a compliment by playing a full strength side and they were probably a bit sharper than us but we gave away a sloppy goal which was the only real chance they had in the game. It was a mistake with David Noble trying to overplay and we should have equalised later in the game so I'm not too disappointed.

'We changed things in the second half and made sure everyone was up to speed with game time. I thought the three in midfield worked well for a fifteen to twenty minute spell. I had to get some match time into Michael O'Connor who will benefit greatly from his time on the pitch but we'd rather he could have come in against a much lesser opposition. But we went to Dinnington yesterday (Thursday) afternoon and seeing the state of the pitch that wasn't going to be an option so we started him today which was a bit earlier than expected. The medical team will make sure he's come through today alright because the boy hasn't played since March and we need to find him time on the pitch.

Speaking about the two who started up front, Alex Revell and Daniel Nardiello, Evans said, 'I thought they did alright. Naridello's movement was great and Revs does great to muscle the boy out of the way and then he mis-kicks and kicks the turf. We've got over three weeks and we are going to try all permutations up front and will keep battling away.'
