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

RUFC - View From The Opposition - Chesterfield

Rotherham United Manager Steve Evans was absolutely delighted with his team`s performance in the one-nil win over near neighbours Chesterfield on Saturday and dedicated the win to the fans.

In the other camp Spireites Manager Paul Cook wasn`t at all happy saying he thought his side got away with murder by only getting beaten one-nil.

Speaking to Spireites Player after the game at the New York Stadium, Cook said, 'I don`t want to be too critical and saying stupid stuff but it was sixty minutes before we turned up.

'The best team won and comfortably. We got a head of steam up late on but I`m embarrassed at how bad we were. We weren't good at being direct, we weren't good at passing and, in my opinion and we struggled for a good player in that game.

'I`m the manager and I take the blame for everything which I have no problem about but it`s time for the players to stand up now. I said if you come to play for us it comes with a responsibility. We let our supporters down today but I've been brought in to do a job and I think our supporters trust me on that one. I hurt more than them.

'Every credit to Rotherham, at times we couldn't handle them today. They were a handful from the first minute and it was pure luck that we went in at half-time nil-nil.

'There are no positives in that performance today for us and we should all sneak back to Chesterfield and keep our heads down.`
