Hard fought win pleases Evans

Gaffer pleased with Dons victory...

Rotherham United boss Steve Evans was pleased with how his side battled to a 1-0 victory at Kingsmeadow, believing they found something previously unseen to get over the line and claim all three points.

“Well it was hard fought wasn’t it,” said Evans. There was nothing in the first-half, we got into them a little bit and then the second half I thought we dominated in their half. They had one chance which I thought they should have scored, but we could have had five or six in that second half because I think we’ve been totally dominant, we’ve passed the ball from side to side, we’ve changed the system a little bit and they’ve introduced us to something else in our game which has helped us get the points.”

Evans introduced Kieran Agard in the second half, and the former Everton and Yeovil man headed home the winning goal, earning three points and praise from his manager in the process.

“If you’re young Kieran Agard, you’re probably scratching your head, injury aside at why you’re not in the side. What I hope people see is how he (Keiran) made up 70 yards down the right-hand side to get on the end of that cross, and everyone in the dressing room is delighted for him. He’s what a professional footballer should be all about, he’s hard working, extremely fit and has a massive heart for the game.”
