We were fantastic, says Evans

Gaffer delighted at win....

Steve Evans described his side’s performance as fantastic as they overcame Bristol City 2-1 at New York Stadium. 

James Tavernier hit two stunning goals either side of a fine Wade Elliott goal just after half-time to seal the points for the home side and extend the unbeaten run in to 15 games.

“We were fantastic,” Evans said after the game. “We showed all the qualities it takes to beat an excellent side. Steve Cotterill has signed some super players and its evident when you watch them play why they’re up there at the top of the form table.

“I think the only concern we had at half-time was why we weren’t 4-0 up after all the chances we’d created and good positions we’d got in.”

Tavernier opened the scoring with a fine strike within two minutes and sealed the points with an excellent free-kick but the Millers boss was also keen to praise Elliott’s goal which got the visitors back level.

“To be fair they have penetrated us, but the goal is a magnificent strike and we were right behind it and if that had got them a point here today you’d have said that was worthy of getting them one.

“We worked extremely hard today but I think there was three good teams out there, us, Bristol City and the officials.”
