Super display says Evans

Rotherham United Manager Steve Evans was delighted wit his side’s display as the Millers earned a 0-0 draw against Nottingham Forest.

Continuing with their newly adopted style, the Millers more than matched their opponents who failed to muster a shot on target all game.

“I thought the performance was absolutely super. If you look at the names on the teamsheet that you’re coming up against you could be scared of playing against them but we said we’d play and we’d get the ball down and pass it. Our performance was that good, we hit the woodwork and made the goalkeeper scramble across his goal for one. We’ll keep playing like that, we’re not going to change.”

It stretches the Millers run of games without a win to nine, but they have kept two consecutive clean sheets, and holding two early season promotion favourites to credible draws.

“It will get better,” Evans added. “We’ve only been working on this for two weeks but we totally dominated last week and we’ve done it again today.”

“We know we’d all love a goalscorer but they come at a real premium at this level. We’ve got to go and find one on our budget, the same way we found Wootton, Ledesma, James and Lawrence, who was stunning today. We’ll get goals though, look how close we came today.”
