Evans pleased with narrow victory
Millers boss Steve Evans was delighted with his team’s 2-1 victory over fellow promotion hopefuls Fleetwood Town at New York Stadium. The hosts battled their way to three points as they overcame a resilient Cod Army in South Yorkshire, with Evans thrilled by his side’s performance:
“My immediate thoughts were that it was a hard fought win. They were a really tough team and I’m so pleased because we stood toe-to-toe with them. We took real pride in the shirt after people have questioned us all season and we won three points today. There are some men in that dressing room that wanted to be counted and I’m really delighted for young Kieran.” He said.
“This wasn’t just a battle that was won on the pitch and the atmosphere in the ground was absolutely fantastic. That’s one of the reasons that me and Paul Raynor came and joined the Millers. There were great scenes at the end, but it counts for nothing if we don’t get three points.
“We’ve let them down before, but today, together on and off the pitch led by our chairman, we managed to get the result.”
Daniel Nardiello hobbled off after firing the Millers ahead but Evans will have to wait to find out the extent of his top goalscorers injury:
“We’ll send Nards for a precautionary x-ray and scan and we’ll hope he’s okay but we won’t know the answer to that until Monday.”
