Robins Post Forest

Robins Post Forest

Rotherham United manager, Mark Robins, was delighted with the draw away today at Nottingham Forest.

He told the Official Site, 'they threw a lot at us during the second half and made it difficult but over all I thought we had done enough to win the game.

'Chris O'Grady's goal was outstanding. But, then there is the other side of him that we saw today when he has to concentrate to hit the target. Those are the chances you hope will go in.

'I wouldn't want to single any one player out today but it was a blow when Ian Sharps had to come off. But Pablo (Mills) came in and eventualy got in positions to head the ball.

'When they got the penalty Fleming had a little swing at their player but Worrell should have got tighter on Commons and it would have stopped the situation.

'We knew the crowd would have a big bearing today and that the players would enjoy it in front of so many. We had a good go at them and I thought we were the better side, especially in the first half. The players battled well and I was delighted with them. The confidence that was missing is starting to come back.

In normal circumstances it would have been a good result but we need the points - we are running out of games.

'The effort the lads have put in over the two Easter games has been tremendous, you can't knock the players at all.'

I said exactly the same to Mexxy on the way out of the stadium, that under different circumstances, that would have been an excellent result!

A top perfomance today.I just thought in the last 15 minutes or so we could have thrown caution to the wind and gone for it.A point isn't enough.
