RUFC - Evans 'A Lot Of Big Performances'

Rotherham United Manager Steve Evans couldn't have been anything but happy after his side's first away win of the season yesterday afternoon at Millwall.

Speaking after the one-nil win, the Millers Boss told Radio Sheffield, 'We didn't start well and allowed Millwall a bit too much of the ball but we always knew that we'd limit them. I think that Ricardo Fuller should score with a header for them but then we missed two sitters and we should have gone in at half-time two-one up.

'I think we looked more comfortable second half. We swapped our wide players at half-time and the goal comes from that. Alex (Revell) wins a header, Paul Taylor does a little bit of magic and Ben (Pringle) comes in off the other touchline. So, from a training ground point of view it's a fantastic goal.'

Speaking about the game the Gaffer said there was a lot of big performances, saying, 'I thought (Richie) Smallwood was terrific and (Lee) Frecklington and (Anthony) Wordsworth complemented each other. It was a good team performance today.

'I can't remember Millwall making many chances. I think they put some crosses into the box but the (Craig) Morgan and (Kari) Arnason have stepped up and won a lot of headers in the box. The plan today was to let (Paul) Taylor and Pringle go roving off the big man up front and it worked for us.

'We've still got lots to learn in this division, we aren't there yet. We've got a big game next Saturday at home to Brentford which is a team I've got a real lot of respect for. But the New York was rocking against Watford and Wolves and we need that again next week.

'We had a terrible journey down yesterday but this is wonderful for our supporters. When you see people travelling from South Yorkshire all the way down here to support us it's terrific. And this Millwall support get a lot of stick and it's not right because they always get behind their team and if you're the manager here that's what you want a passionate support and you want them hating the opposition. But it's us who sent our supporters home today happy.

'We've got a long trip home now and we will be making lots of changes for Tuesday night and then we'll get ready for Brentford.'
