We didn't take our chances - Evans

25 January 2014

Steve Evans post Crawley Town...

Millers boss Steve Evans was happy to settle for a point after admitting his side were not at their best in the 2-2 draw with Crawley Town at New York Stadium.

The hosts came from behind twice to rescue a point, with Kieran Agard’s dramatic stoppage time goal ensuring Evans’ men retained their place in the League One play-offs.

“I was delighted we got a point,” Evans said after the game. “I think with the first 15-20 minutes it looks as though there will be a few goals to us and we’re going to run over them, but we didn’t take our chances, and if that’s the case there’s a good chance you’re going to get hit on the counter-attack which we did. Tubbsy gets the goal, and it’s two mistakes from us but he capitalised on them and that’s what he does.”

It wasn’t a game that would have been enjoyed by the neutral, with Evans admitting his side lacked the desired tempo against a frustrating Reds outfit. 

“The problem we had today was getting some tempo into the game and it was almost enough to put you off football. John’s worked on that you can tell, slowing the game down and taking the tempo out of it. From their point of view it’s a good goal, from our point of view it’s poor defending but after laying siege to their goal for 10 minutes we got the equaliser.”
