"We should have won," Evans

Millers boss rues missed chances...

Rotherham United manager Steve Evans was pleased with his team’s 1-1 draw at home to Notts County, and believes his side warrant a place in tomorrow’s third round draw despite a shaky start.

“I thought for 20 minutes they were better than us, but then we started to pass and move it for the remaining part of the half we equalised and we perhaps should score when Bradley hits the post,” said Evans. “In the second half I thought we were by far the better team and I’ve just looked at an incident where there’s handball in the box late on, and it’s not a penalty for me but we made a chance in the 90th minute where Nards puts it high and wide, and if there’s one person in the camp you’d want on the end of that, it’s him.”

Despite a nervy opening 20 minutes, the Millers enjoyed large periods in the ascendancy and almost did enough to win the game at the first time of asking. However, it wasn’t to be, and the Millers will make the short trip to Nottingham following a clash with League Two’s top club next week. 

“As I’ve said we’re in a good run of form, we’re trying to play the right way, and the passage of play for our goal should be played 25 times on the television. Good play by Courtney, Nardiello, a great ball by Michael O’Connor and a good finish by Pringle. We look forward to the tie, but first and foremost we need to get ourselves dusted off and get back to it in League Two next week, and there’s no better team than Gillingham. It’s far from over and we look forward to doing battle with them in 10 days time.”
