RUFC - Raynor 'Not Good Enough'

RUFC - Raynor 'Not Good Enough'

Rotherham United's Assistant Manager Paul Raynor echoed his manager's thoughts saying that he thought today's loss at home to Barnet was 'disappointing.'

Speaking to Radio Sheffield after the two-nil defeat, Raynes said, 'We started quite brightly and made one or two openings. Their 'keepers made a couple of good saves and then it petered out a little bit. We certainly had enough possession but didn't do enough with the ball and we are very disappointed with the result and the performance. With all the possession we had we didn't create clear cut opportunities which is disappointing.

Asked about Barnet's opening goal, Paul said, 'Our two centre-halves could deal with it, our goalkeeper could deal with it. I thought Johnny Mullins got dragged out of position and Ian Sharps is too far away from the striker to get his mate out of trouble and Andy (Warrington) gets himself into no-mans land and makes the guys mind up for him and gives him an easy finish.

'The second goal was a defensive mistake. Young Kearns could do a little better in the wide area. He dived in and the boy Holmes has rode the challenge and picks someone out in the middle of the goal. It was another sloppy goal that could be avoided but we were throwing more men forward and we were susceptible on the break.

'That's five goals in two games and we need to cut those individual errors down. It's just not good enough. We have a squad and a team out there today who didn't do enough with and without the ball today and when that happens you aren't going to get three points.

'And, as Barnet have proved in recent weeks, you give them something to hang on to and they do it very well. We told our players what they would try and do and all the pitfalls and asked them to be brave on the ball, move it across the pitch and create opportunities but our runs into the box weren't determined enough, weren't of quality and we didn't create enough with the balls that were coming in so, on the whole, a disappointing afternoon.'
