Raynor disappointed with cup exit

3 January 2015

Changes to be made says Assistant Manager...

Rotherham United assistant Paul Raynor was disappointed after seeing his side dumped out of the FA Cup at the hands of Bournemouth. 

The Millers conceded five goals for the first time at the AESSEAL New York Stadium as Championship leaders Bournemouth overcame an early deficit to run out convincing winners against a patched up Millers side. 

“We felt alright for 45 minutes, but after that it was far from the case. I’m very disappointed; you have to take defeats from time to time, but certainly the manner of the performance in the second half is not something we’re used to seeing. We’ll have a good look at it tomorrow, the players will be in early in the morning and we’ll certainly go through the 95 minutes, nevermind just the second-half because we need to better and to be fair we have been better in the last few weeks.”

Manager Steve Evans was forced into three changes with the departure of two loanees and Scott Wootton not being given permission to play, and Raynor believes that after today’s performance, there will be more changes to come in the January transfer window.

“When you lose the likes of Lawrence, Ledesma and Wootton it leaves a big hole. The window’s now open and it whilst it will be a different Bournemouth team when they come here on the 17th I can guarantee you now it will be a different Rotherham United team.”
