Rotherham United manager, Mark Robins, has told The Star, that the ‘lads were upbeat’ after the goaless draw on Saturday at Hereford.

‘Of course they wanted to win,’Robins said, ‘but we were glad that we had taken something from the opening game and I do think that’s important.

‘It was a hard earned draw in the end. I would like to have seen us try and pass the ball a bit better and to get on the ball a little bit better.

‘Generally, I thought we were defensively strong. They were a big, big side and we handled it and coped with everything they threw at us.

‘I do think we could have won the game early on and that is a lesson we have to learn – when on top and you have the opportunity, you have to punish your opponent.’
