Character ticks the boxes for Evans

Steve Evans post Huddersfield Town...

Rotherham United boss Steve Evans was impressed with his side’s character, but was left ruing errors after his side had to battle from two goals down to earn a point at home to Huddersfield Town this afternoon. 

The Millers had substitutes Jonson Clarke-Harris and Lee Frecklington to thank as two goals at the death earned their side a point in the Boxing Day Yorkshire derby against the Terriers. 

“I thought we started really well. Some of the passing and moving in the first 15 – 20 minutes was outstanding, and when you have a passage of play like that for as long as that, there’s always a downside that you haven’t scored a goal. There was some heroic defending by Chris (Powell’s) team so they must take the plaudits for that and then they get a silly goal against the run of play.”

With the Millers trailing, Evans made two changes including the formation as Rotherham United searched for a leveller and they eventually found it in dramatic fashion. 

“In the second half I thought was a bit end-to-end and they’re trying to kill the game when they get the second, but we changed the system, we changed the personnel and we got fantastic support from the Kop as we always do. It’s always nice when two of your substitutes score. I thought Jono’s header was fantastic and then the second goal we got a little fortunate with the deflection but we deserved that bit of luck after some things didn’t drop for us in the area earlier in the game.”
