RUFC - Robins Post Darlington

Rotherham United went to Darlington yesterday and came away with a well deserved point, although, manager, Mark Robins thought they could have had all three.

Speaking to MillersWorld after the game he said he was well satisfied with the team performance. 'I thought our decision making at the start was poor, but we grew into the game and I feel we could have had all three points.

'Julian Joachim caused us a few problems at the start but Stephen Brogan got the better of him in the end. I thought we bossed the game and got a deserved lead and apart from fifteen minutes in the second half we definitely dominated the play and dserved to win. Saying that, we were a bit naive and looked a bit lop-sided when Marc Joseph came off with an injury and we played into their hands a little.

'We should have been trying to get the ball away from our goal and not passing it in front of them. We should have moved the ball into their half and squeezed them in.

'I thought Ian Ross's passing was excellent and he moved it well. But we all looked strong out there today which was pleasing because Darlington had only conceeded ten goals before this game and are a good side. It was good to see Chris O'Grady on the score sheet again.

'We gained a valuable point and there were some pleasing things that came out of the game. It was a decent game but we were disappointed in the dressing room afterwards that we hadn't gone on and won it.'
