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

RUFC - Raynor 'deserved all three points'

Rotherham United's Assistant Manager Paul Raynor thought they deserved the three points they got this afternoon against Oxford United despite a slow start from the Millermen.

Speaking after the three-one win to Radio Sheffield, Raynes said, 'It was a slow start and we switched off on the edge of the box and got punished but it was a poor goal for them from our standards and we should have dealt with it better.

'It was important that we got back into the game and we got level and we thought if we could start the second half on the front foot the chances would come. It was a clear cut penalty and we hit the post and we thought we should probably have gone it at half-time in front.

'We played an attacking formation with Gareth Evans and Lionel Ainsworth supporting the big man and we've got Kari Arnason in the middle of the park which makes a difference.

'We've worked very hard this week. We were a little bit disappointed at Barnet because we didn't get a grip of the game like we thought we should have done. It takes a lot when you go one-nil down when the doubts can creep in but the guys showed real belief today. We know the away performances haven't been good and we need to take our home performances into the away games.

'I don't think Oxford caused us too many problems, one clear cut chance towards the end of the game and Scott's (Shearer) made a good save but we are delighted with the three points which, in my opinion, were well deserved and it was a good comprehensive win.

'We need to give these fans something to talk about and something to cheer. When we get ahead like that they are the twelfth man for us.'

Asked what Manger Steve Evans thought, Raynes said, 'He was obviously delighted.'
