Moore reasonably happy with work out

Johnny Mullins and Jeremiah Ani made their debuts as Adam Le Fondre's goal just after the break sent the Millers through to round two.

Moore spoke to Millersplayer afterwards about the pairs display, and also about other matters of the evening.

"John needs games and we'll play him again on Saturday because Dean (Holden) can't play. He's just finding his legs. Its difficult when you've only had twenty minutes in a pre-season game and then he's thrown into a ninety minute game," said Moore.

"But he's come through it alright. I think John will have learnt a lot today when he's playing with Nicky Law about where to go and where not to go otherwise he's going to need two iron lungs getting back."

Moore added: "I think Jerry needs to do a lot better than he did today because I was a bit disappointed in his movement. His runs weren't right but we'll do a bit of work with him and give him a month here for us to have a look at him.

"I thought first half we were a bit sloppy but the second half we upped the tempo and once we upped the tempo I thought there was only going to be one winner.

'In the first half it was like a five-a-side. We were playing let them have it then we'll have it then they have it so there were a few strong words at half-time. We looked to move the ball quicker and to play forward off the strikers a lot quicker.

"I think the best chance they had was the one off Cressies chest back to the 'keeper so overall I can't complain because I thought it was a good workout for us. Exodus had a groin injury that was really sore before the game but he wanted to play. At half-time he couldn't kick with it so we had to bring him off.

"Young Luke went on and I thought he did well. He just got caught once with a ball on the back post but his use of the ball is good and he's a typical footballing centre-half."
