RUFC - Evans Post Notts County

RUFC - Evans Post Notts County

Rotherham United Manager Steve Evans said that although he thought today's game was a fantastic cup-tie his team should have gone on and won it.

Speaking after the one-all draw, the Millers Boss thought that for the first twenty minutes or so his team gave the Magpies a bit too much respect and told Radio Sheffield, 'After they got the goal we gave them a real drubbing for the rest of the first half. In the second half I thought it was an end-to-end fantastic cup tie but on ninety minutes we had the big chance and it falls to Nards (Daniel Nardiello) and it looks easier to score than miss but I don't need to tell Nardiello that. But he put a good shift in for us today. He worked hard and covered every blade of grass. We had a thought to bring him off with four or five minutes to go and put on some fresh legs but his finishing has been so good we just thought if a chance falls to him he'll stick it in the net. It fell to him, he got under it and its gone. We'll re-group and get ready for next Saturday. The players are disappointed tonight.

The Millers went one down just after the half-hour mark and Evans was pleased with the character his players showed to get back into the game. 'We've got a squad here that's full of men full of character and look, this is Notts County we are playing who are one of the favourites to go up into the Championship. They've come here at full strength and played a Rotherham United side who probably have three players in the stand who, arguably, would start today. It's got the hallmarks of a fantastic replay and we'll certainly take a big support and maybe the television camera's might turn up as they should have done today.

'I don't think we got one decision of any note today. I think every fifty-fifty went to Notts County and although I'm not blaming the referee for not winning a cup-tie, can anyone remember a fifty-fifty decision being given to the Millers? I can't. One that sticks in my mind was the clear corner on sixty-five or seventy minutes seen by everyone but the officials who gave a goal-kick to Notts County.'

Speaking about Ben Pringle's equaliser, Evans said, 'It was a great move down the left hand side. Courtney (Cameron) sent Michael (O'Connor) away and he has the vision to pick Pringle out and Ben Pringle can finish like that every day, it's not a surprise to us. I thought we were going to win the cup-tie and based on the possession, based on chances, based on passage of play we should have done. But this cup tie is far from over.'
