Evans down after late leveller

2 November 2013

Millers rue costly errors...

Boss Steve Evans was left bitterly disappointed as his side conceded a late equaliser in a 2-2 draw with Colchester United at New York Stadium.

After going 1-0 down to a header from former Millers loanee Marcus Bean, the hosts  levelled through Matt Tubbs’ first goal for the club. 

A spell of dominance then ensued for Evans’ side and their reward came when Kieran Agard put them ahead with his close range finish after 22 minutes.

The Millers then took control of the game and controlled possession for the remainder of the game but had their hearts broken when Elliott Lee snatched a point for the visitors with his stoppage time header.
“I’m as down as I’ve ever been,” Evans said after the game. “They’ve had two efforts on goal and it must have been in the fifth minute of injury time when they scored. We’ve had loads of chances again and didn’t take them; we have battered them from start to finish, but we have a tendency to make an error and it’s costing us at the moment.”

Steve Evans made two changes to the side that narrowly lost to league leaders Leyton Orient last week, being without Craig Morgan who has picked up five yellow cards. Matt Tubbs also got a start alongside Alex Revell.

“We don’t get any consistency in team selection with bookings meaning we lose players, so we’ve been restricted in personnel and I’m absolutely devastated. I won’t come in and say I’ll have them in at 9am tomorrow because we’ve still battered them. We’ve scored two goals and we should be winning that but we’ve had two defensive errors.”
