Frecks frustration despite draw

Lee Frecklington talks to

Midfield stringpuller Lee Frecklington admitted his side were disappointed not to have claimed their fourth straight victory at Walsall on Saturday.


Daniel Nardiello's fifth goal of the season put the Millers in charge of the encounter at the Bescot Stadium before Steve Evans' men were pegged back by Sam Mantom's equaliser on the half hour mark.


In an even second half, the Millers were denied a spot-kick when Nardiello went down after a challenge by Andy Taylor and Frecklington expressed his frustration over having to settle for a share of the spoils.


"We thought Nards' chance was a penalty and if we got that decision it could have been a different story,” he told


"We started well and the goal put us on the front foot but we are disappointed it was a mistake that put them back in the game.


"In the second half we dug in and the energy levels were high but on another day we'd have won the game."


The point maintains Rotherham's unbeaten start to the season following their promotion to England's third tier and the ex-Peterborough midfielder believes the club should be proud of their efforts so far.


"We're unbeaten after eight games so its a great start for Rotherham," he added.


"Walsall are a decent side and when we look back later in the season we may feel a draw was a good result but everyone has left disappointed we didn't get more out of the game."
