RUFC - Evans Happy With O'Connor Form

RUFC - Evans Happy With O'Connor Form

Rotherham United Manager Steve Evans has been impressed with midfielder Michael O'Connor when he has featured in the last couple of games.

The twenty-five year old Irishman joined the Millers from Scunthorpe in the summer and started the first twelve league and cup games but then a slight dip in form saw him moved to the subs bench, coming on for the last twelve minutes in the FA Cup win over Stevenage and he played the full second half on Tuesday night, coming on for the injured Kari Arnason.

Speaking to MillersPlayer the Millers Boss said, 'The biggest compliment I can give Michael is that we never missed Arnason on Tuesday night.

'But that's how Michael O'Connor can play. If he doesn't play like that then he won't get in the team and he'll be sat next to me on the bench.'

Michael had a double hernia operation towards the end of last season with Evans saying that it's taken the Millers physio, Denis Circuit, a while to get him going. 'His rehabilitation wasn't how it should have been with his former club and he has to work so hard just to keep his physique right. We brought him in for some games but we didn't feel he was quite right then he wanted to set of playing like Ray Wilkins. Well, if you're going to play like Ray Wilkins you have to have his passing skills and his ability. But the other night he played like Michael O'Connor and he's got a wonderful talent but he needs to play the way we want him to play.

'We've had loads of chats and I think he knows what he has to do to be in the team.'
