We were unlucky, says Scott

MANAGER Andy Scott insists Rotherham United were unlucky not to come away with all three points from Northampton Town this afternoon.

An error from goalkeeper Conrad Logan, spilling a cross into his own net, gifted the home side a 24th minute equaliser after Gareth Evans had opened the scoring after just 70 seconds.

The match ended 1-1 to leave the Millers without a win in ten matches.

Scott said: “They only had one shot on target and Conrad had to make a good save in the second half but apart from that we dominated in terms of territory. We just lacked that little bit of luck in the box and that little bit of quality. It’s frustrating but we were more resolute in defence and with a little bit more composure in the final third we would have won and rightly so.

“There were some good individual performances. We’re desperate for a clean sheet but given the injuries and the changes we’ve had to make, we dealt with it well.

“Overall it was a good away performance and Northampton were always going to have their tails up having had a poor result in midweek. They were fighting for their lives for this one and we had to withstand that and we did on the whole.”

The draw was Rotherham’s third on the trot, dropping them to 14th in League Two ahead of next Saturday’s home match against Aldershot.

Scott added: “It’s another away game where we have picked a point up and if we can get three points against Aldershot  then it will add up to a pretty decent four-game run."

The Millers are still waiting to discover the full extent of Michael Raynes’ injury. The centre-half was stretchered off in the first half.
