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

RUFC - Evans 'Blame Me'

Rotherham United Manager Steve Evans said that he was 'gutted' after the defeat this afternoon to Bristol Rovers at the New York Stadium.

After losing their third game in a row, two of which have been at home, the Millers Boss told MillersPlayer, 'We never played at all and this is as down as I've been in many years as a manager.

'I think the stats show they had four efforts at goal and scored three. They looked much better than us at stages but I do think we got a performance in the second half and I was pleased that we hemmed them in for five or ten minutes in the second half.'

'We lacked imagination and a real work ethic at the top of the pitch and if you do that then you're not going to be creative. Then I think they got a soft penalty and then the sending off of Claude (Davis) where Dale Tonge put him in a terrible position and Claude sticks a leg out and the guy goes over. It's a foul and I've no dispute that it's a second yellow.

'The change we made in the second half looked to have worked because we got on the ball and we passed it then they knock an aimless ball up the line and Dale Tonge gets his lines crossed in seventeen directions which gives the ball a second chance.

'There were too many players on that pitch today who weren't right and I don't know what the stats show but we still dominated the game. The ball into the box from free-kicks and corners wasn't good enough today but I think we were on top throughout the game except for the odd break-away up the pitch but goals win games.

'The crowd vented their frustration which they are entitled to do when they are watching that. But I need to take it on the chin. Don't blame the players, blame me, I pick them.'
