Consistency is key, says Ronnie

ROTHERHAM United chief Ronnie Moore is demanding better consistency from his players having seen them blow hot and cold in Saturday's win at Burton Albion.

The Millers trailed 2-1 after a shoddy first half and survived a penalty miss by the Brewers early in the second period before finally getting their act together to win 4-2 with three late goals from Marcus Marshall, Adam Le Fondre—his 21st of the season—and Jason Taylor.

The win lifted them back into third spot in League Two but Moore wants his side to be on the ball from the start at Torquay United tomorrow night.

He said: "We were very fortunate considering our first-half performance and lucky not to be out of the game. Credit to them for the second half but we want to be in the top three this season. Playing like we did in the first half, we won't be, but playing like we did in the second then no-one will live with us. You cannot be like the Dog and Duck and then Real Madrid."

Both defender Johnny Mullins and substitute Liam Henderson came in for praise from Moore.

Mullins wiped out Greg Pearson's early opener by heading in his first goal for the club while Henderson, in on loan from Watford, set up Marshall's equaliser and twice went close to scoring.

"Mullins is enjoying himself at centre-half and made some important blocks while Henderson put a superb ball in for the goal. He's given me food for thought," added Moore.
