RUFC - Evans 'best team lost'

Rotherham United Manager Steve Evans said that the best side lost last night after the one-nil defeat to Sheffield United - and I don't think anyone can argue with that.

Speaking to MillersPlayer, Steve said, 'I think we've played some super stuff. I was delighted with the performance but massively disappointed with the result.

'We should have been one up inside the first couple of minutes although they did score a good goal but both sides played some good passing football. We had our chances, we made five they made two and we've lost the game so, although there was a lot of good stuff there are still things we need to work on.

'It's been a tough pre-season with a ten day spell of games against Barnsley, Doncaster, Hearts and Sheffield United but arguably we were the better team tonight and I didn't say that on Saturday. There wasn't many players on the park I was disappointed with and I was pleased with them all. Lionel Ainsworth looked more like himself tonight and was a real threat until his legs fell off. I thought Kieran Agard looked electric when he came on and Michael O'Connor came on and acquitted himself really well while Gareth Evans looked more like a player than last week. I thought the two upfront worked really hard against quality League One defenders with Kayode Odejayi competed aggressively on the pitch and Nardiello made some great runs and perhaps should have scored two.

'We know we'll improve and we know we'll get better.'

Speaking about the crowd last night, Steve said, 'The atmosphere was electric. I thought in the last fifteen minutes our fans were going to bring the roof off and if they could have sucked a goal in they would have done it! It was magic. But we're going to need that in League Two and it will intimidate some visiting players who won't be able to handle the pressure.'

Rotherham United's fighting spirit did them well this afternoon after they came from one down in the first half to win the South Yorkshire derby with Doncaster Rovers two-one - but boy, did they leave it late!

Joe Mattock was back in the starting line-up for the Millers with Michael Ihiekwe, who had replaced him last week, nowhere to be seen. Rovers also made one change with Ben Whiteman replacing the injured Luke McCullough.

It was a scrappy start to the game and although Rovers
