We're disappointed because we've drawn - Moore

Last updated : 30 November 2009 By Duke

The Millers could only draw their second round F.A. Cup match with Luton Town at the Don Valley this afternoon. Afterwards boss Ronnie Moore explained to the Official Site: "Good sides don't concede goals like that," Moore continued:

"We did the right thing going on and trying to get another but we weren't patient enough. We went too gung-ho and began chasing it.

"If you play square balls like that you're always going to be in trouble. It was a silly ball to play, they've broke against us three against two and the lad's got lucky as it's gone through Fenton's legs. He couldn't really miss could he?"

Luton took the lead through a penalty taken by Tom Craddock, after Andy Nicholas upended Claude Gnapka, Moore said:

"The penalty was unbelievable, how naïve to get done like that,"

"But both goals I thought were naïve from our point. We've gifted them the two goals through bad decision making."

Adam Le Fondre had equalised for the Millers just before the half-time break, and when Stephen Brogan headed the Millers in front with 15 minutes to go all looked well Moore saying:

"That's the frustrating thing for me, at 2-1 I thought we were cruising. At that point I thought there was only going to be one winner. I was comfortable, the most comfortable I've been on the dugout since I've been here actually.

"We're disappointed because we've drawn. We're unbeaten in six games now but I'm disappointed and the players are disappointed that we've not won the game.

"We've got to go on and do it the hard way now. It's a game we could do without as it will take that extra bit out of us physically."

Acknowledging top scorer Le Fondre, and looking forward to Tuesday's game at Shrewsbury Moore said:

"It's always nice to have a natural goalscorer and that's what we've got in Adam.

"We're looking forward to the challenge there's no doubt about that. It's back on to the league and that's what we want. We've won three in a row in the league and we want to make that four.

"They're a good side, have a nice stadium with a nice pitch so I'm looking forward to it."
