It was a huge win, says Evans

Gaffer delighted with Posh win...

Rotherham United boss Steve Evans was delighted with his side after their 1-0 victory at Peterborough United stretched their unbeaten run to 13 games.

Kieran Agard was felled in the area midway through the first half before dusting himself down and converting the deciding strike from 12 yards.

"It's a big victory against a super team," Evans said after the game. "They're strong in a number of areas but we've come and put in a magnificent away performance. I think the referee had a strong game and he had to because it was two committed teams as it always is when you come to London Road. It's a real tough place to come and we're just pleased to come away with three points. If it's my player (for the penalty decision), I'm asking why he's allowed the referee the chance to make a decision there but over the 90 minutes today we deserved the three points and the best chance of the game came our way as well when Nicky Adams could have finished the game but their goalkeeper made a terrific save."

It moves the Millers up into fourth position, and Evans was quick to praise his players and the large travelling support who made the journey the A1, but tell them that nothing has been achieved just yet.

"We're pleased, we've had a lot of effort and commitment out there, but we don't gloat, we just go away and it's really tough to get in those play offs and we'll just continue to work hard and see where it takes us. We came here today, worked hard, with a magnificent support who backed us and they deserve enormous credit. The players won't talk about the play offs, and neither will the Chairman, because nothing has been achieved until it's guaranteed."
