RICHARD Wood credited Rotherham United’s change of tack for ensuring a successful day at Blackpool.
It wasn’t just a game of two halves at freezing Bloomfield Road, it was a game of two performances. Poor in the first half in a 3-5-2, the Millers’ switch to 4-4-2 at half time helped spark a swift improvement and a comeback crowned by two goals from David Ball.
“Going forward, it wasn’t working at all in the first half,” Wood told the Advertiser. “At half time the gaffer told us it wasn’t good enough but we knew that anyway. He was bold and made some changes. The time and the pitch wasn’t conducive to passing football so we just dug in, battled away and got our just rewards in the end.
“I’m hoping that’s the turning point now and the catalyst to go on a run.”
