Scott encouraged by performance

MANAGER Andy Scott rued Rotherham United's bad luck after they were forced to settle for a point at home to Crewe Alexandra last night.

The Millers dominated after falling behind to an early penalty but had only a 63rd minute equaliser from Lewis Grabban, his 16th goal of the season, to show for their efforts.

Scott said: "It was unbelievable how sometimes the ball didn't go in. You can pray to the Gods but sometimes it doesn't happen.

"I've come out after games and been angry and frustrated at times but I'm honest and this time we did everything to win.

"We've got to keep persevering and believing that it is going to get us results, because it will."

The draw, following Saturday's 1-1 scoreline at Barnet, means the gap to the League Two play-offs stays at eight points. It also extended Rotherham's run without a win to five games but Scott sees grounds for encouragement.

"The challenge after Saturday was to be brave, both on and off the ball, and we were," he said. "Now the challenge is to go and do it again and if they do that then everyone connected with this club will be proud of the team we're putting out there."
