I hold my hands up, I got it wrong - Evans

Last updated : 13 January 2013 By Deano

In an honest interview with themillers.co.uk earlier today the gaffer admits that having slept on it, he made mistakes by making five changes to the starting line up as the Millers put in a woeful display and were booed off at the end of either half.

Evans explained: "As a team went too direct in our approach play and it made it easier for the Barnet lads to defend. At half-time we reminded the players to pass the ball and be patient but as can happen they got caught up in trying to score rather than create chances to score. Also, it is clear on the DVD we created six good clear chances to score in the second period and that led to us leaving gaps at the back as we tried to get that elusive goal.

"With the benefit of hindsight I got my team selection wrong on the day and I hold my hands up. I told this to my players this morning, we all win together and we share the losses together. From last week I had two enforced changes and I made five, it was a step to far but having beaten myself up overnight I need to let the players move on and be positive."
He adds: "This morning I also met with each of the players individually and that was very constructive. We have put together an excellent squad, good players and fine me who are all up for the challenges we face. We are down this morning and many will criticise but we will remain strong as a group. It is not about being down, it is all about getting up and coming out fighting.
"Our supporters had a right to be disappointed yesterday, they want what we want and that is the Millers winning. I was devastated."
