Evans remains positive despite defeat
Updated Sunday, 10th February 2013
After the Millers 11th defeat of the season, Steve Evans took the positives out of yesterdays 2-0 loss to fellow promotion hopefuls Burton.
The Millers eventually finished with nine men but controlled the ball for alot of the game, without really hurting their opponents.
Evans gave reaction to todays Gaffer on a Sunday on the official site, having slept on Saturdays events.
He said: "In relation to the match itself, we started very brightly and for a period we played some good football and limited Albion to breakaway attacks. Goals always change matches and we have to be disappointed with our defending for both the goals we conceded.
"For the first goal Johnny Mullins loses the first header from a long free-kick, but even allowing for that Kari Arnason needs to defend much stronger.
"The second goal clearly had a hand ball by Billy Kee play a massive part in his control of the ball and a foul should have been awarded to us, but again Kari needs to do better as perhaps does Andy Warrington.
"After going down to 10 men shortly before the interval with the dismissal of David Noble, we made a couple of substitutions and our second half performance with 10 men was excellent. We were by far the better team for that entire half but as we know goals win football matches."
He added: "There were many positives in the performance, the introductions of Lee Frecklington and Danny Kearns gave the lads a real spark, the effort, desire and commitment could not be faulted but the task to come back against a good team with 10 men proved too hard in the end."
