RUFC - View From The Opposition - Stevenage

Rotherham United Manager Steve Evans was obviously delighted at getting three points against Stevenage on Saturday afternoon although he says it was the hard game that he predicted.

Graham Westley Manager of Boro said he was gutted for his players after the two-one loss at the New York Stadium.

Speaking to BBC Three Counties Radio the Stevenage Boss said, 'Football can be cruel sometimes and it certainly was cruel this afternoon.

'I think the lads put a lot of work in this afternoon and I feel for them. They played some really good stuff and, on chances, I'm sure we were probably in the ascendency.

'Rotherham are going well and have good general form and Steve has them going well. They have a big squad of experienced players they can bring off (Claude) Davis and bring on (Miles) Addison who are two massive players at this level. But I thought our lads were terrific. They took the game to them and kept their focus and sense of purpose and we had chance after chance in the second half.'

Westley spoke about the Millers winning goal which he thinks was a foul on their goalkeeper and said, 'We aren't looking for excuses but we were devastated not to get the decision. The goalkeeper had the ball in his hands and Revell makes no contact with the ball but makes a lot of contact with our goalkeeper and ninety-nine times out of a hundred I think you'd see a free-kick given. I've looked at it on the video and I'm trying to give the officials the benefit of the doubt but I'm finding it tough to accept.'

The Boro' players also had their hands up for off-side for the Millers first goal but their Manager said, 'I don't think it was off-side.'
