We worked extremely hard, says Evans

Rotherham United Manager Steve Evans believes his side had the better chances as they earned a 1-1 draw against table-toppers Norwich City at Carrow Road. 

The Millers opened the scoring when Paul Green converted from the spot in the first-half after Matt Derbyshire was fouled by ‘keeper John Ruddy. Craig Morgan had a header kicked off the line close to the end, whilst Jordan Bowery and Jonson Clarke-Harris went close, but they couldn’t prevent Cameron Jerome from stabbing home an equaliser in the second half.

“They have made some chances and had a lot of possession second half but we have had arguably the most clear cut chances,” said Evans after the game.

“Craig Morgan has one off the line, Matt Derbyshire had a shot across the goal, Jonson Clarke-Harris sends one across the goal and granted they have had a few themselves. 

“We have come here and worked hard against a side that is packed full of quality, they are bringing lads off the bench that make me blink twice.”

Evans was full of praise for every member of his side after a hard-working display against a side that have been free-scoring this season.

“As a management team we scrutinise our side and we pick it fairly, I think there are seven or eight players in that team that were with us in League Two,” he added.

“We had the likes of Richard Brindley playing who hasn’t had a minute in The Championship but I think he has been excellent today. I thought everyone who was on the pitch gave us everything we asked of them, and we have always said as a management team if they have the quality to go with the desire they have got then that will always give us a chance.”
