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

RUFC - Evans 'We Shouldn't Have Lost'

Rotherham United Manager Steve Evans didn't think his team deserved to lose to Port Vale at the New York Stadium yesterday.

'I don't think we did enough in the final third to earn the three points,' he told MillersPlayer today, 'but I don't think we deserved to lose.

'We've looked at the DVD of the game and it's all Rotherham but, to be fair to Port Vale, they've come and defended really well. They had four efforts on goal and get two goals, we've had fourteen efforts on goal and get one and our quality in the final third was missing.

'Michael O'Connor got a harshly given yellow card and we were told by the match official if he had one more foul he would be sent from the field of play so we had to re-structure and change that. I thought Michael was doing well and there was a real battle going on there and I thought we'd just started to get on top of the game when the referee did what he did. But I don't want to really speak about this referee because I understand he's got some previous history with the Millers and I think we'll just say he didn't have a good game and move on. I'm not blaming the referee for the result, far from it, but some of the things that happened yesterday and some of the things he said well I just don't want to give any further comment.

'I think we competed really well. It was an individual error from the same player for both goals and he's put his hands up. We should have had three penalties yesterday. OK, one was fifty-fifty but the other two should have been given.

'The boys are a bit tired today and feeling sorry for themselves but that's how it should be. We're going to re-group now and focus on Accrington.'
