Gaffer's delight at Leeds win...
Rotherham United boss Steve Evans praised his side’s second-half performance after the Millers came from a goal down at half-time to beat Leeds United 2-1 in a televised Yorkshire derby at New York Stadium.
“It was a hard-earned victory against a team who everyone knows I have a huge respect for,” Evans said. “We were disappointed to be behind and if their boy finishes their chance it could get worse. We made the change at half-time, and got more on the front foot playing how we should play. At one stage in the game we’re disappointed and we had to rely on our goalkeeper to make a good save at the end but I’m delighted with a deserved win.
The Millers fell behind to Mirko Antenucci’s opener, but goals from Alex Revell and a screamer from Jonson Clarke-Harris gave the Millers all three points, and back-to-back home victories.
“I think they had a bit more initiative in the first half and our ball retention wasn’t very good. We sat them down (at half-time) and showed them a few examples up on the screen then introduced Paul (Taylor) who can get at players with a different dimension. Then we added Jonson Clarke-Harris to give some added pace and power to the attack. Then in the second-half we carried out our gameplan.”
