Evans delight at hard-fought win

Millers boss pleased at Devon success...

Rotherham United boss Steve Evans was pleased with his side’s 3-1 victory at Torquay United, praising his central defensive pairing and goalkeeper, who helped the Millers to their first victory away from home since New Year’s Day.

Chances were few and far between in the first-half, with the majority coming from the home side and being stopped by Andy Warrington. On a cold evening at Plainmoor, the Millers dug in, and netted three goals in the second period.

“I thought it was hard fought,” said Evans. “The pitch isn’t the best in the league or suited to good football, but you have to work hard, and the goalkeeper made two or three saves at important times for us and we could have scored six or seven, but it was too end-to-end for me when we were 2-0 up, and I’m delighted because it’s a hard place to come.”

Claude Davis returned to the side due to suspensions elsewhere and put in a valiant display alongside captain Johnny Mullins. 

“We didn’t play well in the first-half and I thought Claude Davis and Johnny Mullins were immense. I don’t think they had much to do in the second-half, even Andy Warrington only had one save to make. I’m unsure about the penalty but then we did great at the other end through Courtney, and it sealed a good win for us.”
