It was a great result - Robins

Last updated : 30 August 2009 By Duke

The Millers traveled to Macclesfield this afternoon coming away with all three points.

Manager Mark Robins thought his side fortunate to go in at half time with the lead.

Speaking to the official site he said "It was a great result,We passed the ball well in spells but we were a little bit tentative at times and made hard work of it. We were a little fortunate that we didn't concede more before half-time because they created some good chances. It looked like the long ball was going to beat us every time and Ian Sharps coming back in today found it a little difficult."

Robins went on to say: "The ball was in the air for a fair amount and we had to try and win the second balls. We knew it was going to be like that so it was a great three points because it is tough place to come to."

The way the goals were conceded did not please Robins. "The goals we gave away were poor so that is something that we need to tighten up on," he added.

"Aside from that we produced some good attacking play and some good headed goals from the two strikers and a good finish at the end from Danny."

Worrying for the Millers followers was the withdrawal of striker Tom Pope, with what looked like a nasty injury:

"Tom has been caught with a stud and it has made a hole on one of his arteries so there is blood pouring out. He is in with the doctor now so we will have to access that overnight."
