Changes made the difference, Evans

Millers boss pleased with late point...

Rotherham United boss Steve Evans was disappointed with the start his side made to the game this evening, but was pleased with the outcome, after Daniel Nardiello poked home a last-minute equaliser. 

“I don’t think in the first-half we had the same fluency we’ve had in the last three or four games,” Steve Evans told Millers Player. Saying that, we had the odd scare but we’ve had a lot of the ball. I thought second-half we started really brightly, we’ve got our foot on the ball and dominated possession. Andy (Warrington) kept us in the game with a good save. Their goal is the most fortuitous you can imagine with how it hits him on the back, rolls down his leg and falls in front of him, but to be fair he’s finished it well.”

Nardiello was the hero late in the game, but the dramatic equaliser came after some fine craftsmanship from substitute Ben Pringle. 

“We’ve made a few changes which I think have affected it, and about 10 minutes from the end Nards is asking to come off because he was feeling his groin but I knew he could get a goal so I just told him to get in the box every time a ball comes in and just be there. He got the goal but I’m disappointed because it’s a game we should be winning. I thought all the substitutions changes it, Odejayi, Pringle and Slew; we’ve not played as well as we could play but it could be a vital point that.,” Evans added.
