Great performance pleases Evans

Steve Evabs talks to

Manager Steve Evans felt his side could have had more goals but one was enough to see off Notts County at Meadow Lane.

A first-half goal from Kieran Agard was enough to give the Millers the three points, but in truth they dominated proceedings and could have had more with Agard, Ben Pringle and Lee Frecklington all going close.

“I think that if we had come here and won five or six it would have been reflective of the performance,” beamed Evans at full-time.

“You have to give credit to the home goalkeeper who has stood up and made three or four very good saves, our finishing should been a lot more clinical and had it been that way it might have been that type of scoreline. I don’t think that Scott Shearer has had a save to make. 

“It takes a big performance to come here and do that to this County side, against a team that dominated at Anfield for over 40 minutes, so we don’t kid ourselves to know what it took to produce that performance.”

The Millers lost Mark Bradley and Kari Arnason to injury in the second-half; however Evans revealed that the injury to the latter isn’t as serious as first thought. Pablo Mills came on in the second-half for his second Millers debut, but Evans made special mention to scorer Agard and midfield dynamo Rob Milsom.

“I have said before that Kieran Agard will always keep going in for chances. He has that bravery about himself that he is prepared to miss because he is that keen to score a goal,” added Evans.

“I thought that we had some terrific performances out there, I have to use my words carefully here but I think if there is a better midfield performance in League One this season than what Rob Milsom put in today, I have yet to see it. He was composed, he was technically fantastic, some of his passing was a joy to watch, he will be a big player for us.”
