Raynor rues missed chances

28 September 2013

Undefeated run ends at home...

Rotherham United’s Assistant Manager Paul Raynor has said you couldn’t question the players today after their narrow 1-0 defeat to Peterborough United. 

The Posh went top of the tree after Grant McCann’s penalty kick ended the Millers’ start to the campaign, and Raynor said that Rotherham did everything but put the ball in the back of the net.

“Ask anyone that’s been at the game today, and unless you’re an absolutely mad Peterborough fan then you know we’re hard done by,” Raynor told Millers Player immediately after the game.

“Some of our play was absolutely exceptional; the only thing we can criticise our players for is not putting the ball into the back of the net. We’ve created chances against Peterborough who will be up there, but we’ve not taken them. We need to be more ruthless. They started the game well but after that we were totally dominant and it’s a travesty we’ve not got anything out if it,” Raynor added. 

The Millers missed a number of clear cut chances, with Daniel Nardiello, Mark Bradley and Joe Skarz all going close for the home side. 

“We see it how the supporters see it, and it’s hard to take because the very least we deserved is a point. You’ve got to feel for the players today they’ve given us everything and you can’t fault them for that. Hopefully everything evens itself out and we will get the benefits of it at the end of the season.”
