Rotherham United Manager Steve Evans has echoed his Assistant Paul Raynor is his frustration of the game being called off on Tuesday night at Accrington.
Speaking to MillersPlayer, the Millers Boss, who was hoping to have served the last of his six game stadium ban this coming Saturday, said, 'The match Referee declared his doubts very early when the team arrived. But, we have to go about our business on the basis that the game will go ahead but the longer the night went more rain came and the worse the pitch got and the referee thought there would be a safety problem so we have to leave the decision to him.
'I remember remarking about five o'clock that if the rain kept up there could be a problem. And as much as you say it tongue-in-cheek you don't really expect it. But I then became aware that the Bury match was off and I then thought it could be an issue. When the team coach set off from the hotel to the ground it really was a monsoon and within five minutes of arriving at the ground Paul was on the 'phone saying that the referee had concerns.
'Personally I am frustrated and disappointed and professionally for the team they were focussed and ready and we are disappointed for the fans because it costs a lot of money to get there. It's a game we desperately wanted to play because, if we'd won, it could have moved us up towards the play-off pack.'
Speaking about his ban, Steve said, 'I won't be back now until after the Southend game but when you've been out this long it won't make a lot of difference. The live feeds I'm getting from the New York games are marvellous and I'm thinking about the home games at Christmas and thinking Caribbean! No, it is tough. There's an ache in your stomach on match days but it's nearly over.'
