Raynor hails Rotherham response
Rotherham assistant manager Paul Raynor was pleased with the
reaction from the Millers’ defence in the 1-0 win over Torquay.
The Millers bounced back from their 6-2 hammering by Port Vale
last week to keep a clean sheet and pick up three points thanks to
Alex Revell’s 34th-minute strike.
Raynor, who admitted he had a touch of earache after banned
manager Steve Evans watched the game via a video link and was in
contact over the telephone, said: “We know we have got some quality
players here and we have worked long and hard this week.
“We put a back four together that has had no football together
and the way they performed was a delight. There is more to come
too. They can all be fitter because three of the back four have had
no football together this season.
“We are delighted with the clean sheet and on another day, I
know the gaffer likes to talk about sixes and sevens, but we really
could have won five, six or seven, and that is no disrespect to
“Our goalkeeper didn’t have a shot to save and some of our
attacking was extremely good and on another day we would have got
more goals, but we are saving them for another day. I am just
delighted to get the three points and the sooner the gaffer is
back, the better but if we can keep winning and accumulate some
points while he is away we’ll be delighted as a group.”
