"At 3-1 we were cruising and then we gave them a lifeline. There have been some big clubs that have been knocked out of the FA Cup this year by non-league teams so credit to the lads for hanging in, but at 3-1 we should have seen the game out and kept the ball because we don't have to keep going forward anymore. We have to learn how to let the clock tick away."

 Moore continued:

"We made it harder than it should have been. The lads are sat in the dressing room like they have lost so at least there is some feeling that we can be better than that. The game today was about rolling up our sleeves and getting stuck in and I thought that for the vast majority of the game we did that."
The Millers have a home draw in the next round with either Rochdale or Luton Town after they drew 3-3.

"I think the last time we won in the FA Cup was against Southampton in 2002 so the big thing is that we are through,"

Moore added:

"The aim of the day was to win the game. We made it an exciting cup tie for the 2,000 or so in the crowd and that is the way we are doing things at the moment. We are making things hard for ourselves."
