RUFC - Evans Praise for Players

Rotherham United started Saturday`s win against Oxford with nine players who weren't at the club last season and, rightly so, Manager Steve Evans says it will take them time to gel.

Speaking to MillersPlayer the Millers Boss had nothing but praise for most of the team after the three-one win although he thought we started non too brightly.

'It was disappointing from a defensive point of view when they went one-up because we`d seen them do that corner before but, after the ten or fifteen minute mark I thought we were dominant in possession. When Michael (O'Connor) got us level with the penalty, for me, it was just a question of when the three points were going to come.`

Asked about Kari Arnason, who played his first game since getting an ankle injury playing for Iceland last month, Steve said, 'I thought he was rusty in patches but when the opposition manager goes away raving about him it shows you how talented the lad is. He`s magnificent at centre-back and magnificent in the middle of the park and he could play up front because he`s a talented boy.`

Speaking about his other players, Steve said, 'Craig Morgan is an exceptional player. He`s still short of match time and still playing catch-up and needs to improve to be at the level we want him to be but it`s all there, I've seen it when he was at Peterborough.

'Like Craig, Michael O'Connor has had no pre-season and we always knew it would be October or November before we saw him come into full fruition. We've seen glimpses of it but we don`t see him being totally dominant in the game which we know he can be. But that will come.

'I thought Bob Harris, or Rolf as he`s known in the group, had a nervy first fifteen minutes but once he`d got a foothold in the game I don`t think he gave the ball away. There was one or two sloppy things from Hunty (Nicky Hunt) but look at his energy levels when he ran eighty yards up the pitch to support for the second goal.`
