Evans frustrated after Millers pegged back

Gaffer pleased with second-half...

Rotherham United Manager Steve Evans was disappointed to see his side let a lead slip three times against Fulham at New York Stadium. 

The Millers three times took the lead at New York only for them to be pegged back with the final goal coming in stoppage time from Dan Burn’s header. 

“There’s a lot of things that will stick in my memory,” Evans said. “If you score three goals at home you should win and if Kari Arnason does his job we win as well. We got ourselves in winning positions on three occasions but didn’t hold it long enough. We’re disappointed to have conceded three times and we’ve not been torn apart. The first one is a penalty, the second one he finishes magnificently and the third one comes from a set-piece when we give them a free-header.”

Jonson Clarke-Harris netted the second goals for the Millers before being withdrawn shortly after and Evans was pleased with the second-half performance on the whole.

“It’s a learning curve for us but we’ll bounce in the morning. Jono’s a young lad, he’s 20 years-old so he’ll have a lot of good days and nights with Rotherham United. We respect Fulham, they’ve got an array of talent when you look at the squad but we fear none of them. We’re still developing, I thought positively that we’d win tonight and I was unhappy with the first half but I can’t ask much more from the second only that we defend better.”
