Millers lacked quality, Evans

15 March 2014

Gaffer disappointed with draw...

Rotherham United boss Steve Evans was left disappointed despite the Millers stretching their unbeaten streak to 12 games.

Substitute Nicky Adams equalised with three minutes of normal time remaining after Milan Lalkovic had put the visitors ahead in the first-half, and although Ben Purkiss saw red in the second period, the Millers couldn’t make their dominance count. 

“I think we’re disappointed aren’t we. They’ve only had two efforts on goal, one in the first and Adam Collin’s made a good save in the second but they’ve taken their goal well. It was a good finish to be fair to them, but I thought we lacked a yard in the first period, lacked quality and lacked a bit of composure. It was there in the second half though and I thought we laid siege to their goal. We got a point, our passion isn’t in question but one or two players were just a notch down.”

Two changes were made following two separate injuries picked up in training yesterday meaning Richard Brindley started the game at full-back and Wes Thomas regained his place up front following a thigh strain.

“We’ve worked on our shape yesterday and then two players miss out and we have to change things. It was two separate incidents; Mark Bradley has twisted his knee so he’ll have that scanned tomorrow and James Tavernier has blocked a shot at the end of the session and it’s twisted something but he’ll be ok for next week, Mark we don’t know about yet.”
