Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore says he told his team to ‘get at’ Bournemouth on Tuesday night.

But, as we all know now, it didn’t work like that.

Bournemouth hadn’t been home since before their game at Crewe on Saturday and Moore said, ‘There is nothing worse than being away from home for such a long time. I told our lot to get at them, turn them and get it over the top. We never played anything like that.’

The Bournemouth squad, of only fourteen players, stayed in Rotherham and trained at Sheffield United.

‘Bournemouth haven’t got a pot to pee in at the moment,’ Moore told David Beddows of The Advertiser, ‘and they come here and do that. And I don’t think it’s that they played that well but we played awfully.’

Moore, who had started in the stands but moved to the dugout when the Cherries pulled it back to one-one in the opening minutes of the second half, had a bit of a pop at the fans after they laughed and then booed when Pablo Mills was announced the Sponsors Man of the Match.

‘It’s not really called for,’ Moore said, ‘and doesn’t really help anyone.’
