Raynor impressed by United front

ROTHERHAM United delivered a win for absent manager Steve Evans on Saturday, with assistant Paul Raynor praising the club's togetherness.

Serving the first of a six-match stadium ban, Evans watched a live TV feed from home as Alex Revell's 34th minute goal ensured a 1-0 win against Torquay United at the New York Stadium.

It could have been a lot more had the Millers taken their chances but Raynor was nevertheless delighted the players rose to the challenge.

He said: "I've worked with him for ten years and it was a little bit strange him not being sat next to me. I'm sure he was disappointed and frustrated not to be there but we played well and there was a real togetherness from top to bottom, as was shown by the backing of the supporters.

"The quicker he's back, the better, but if we can keep keep winning and collecting points when he's away then we'll be delighted as a group."

The win put the Millers back up to sixth spot in League Two ahead of tomorrow's home date against Rochdale (7.45pm).
