Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore said that his team should have been ‘out of sight’ after a last gasp winner by skipper Ryan Cresswell gave the Millers a three-two win at Accrington this afternoon.

Speaking to Radio Sheffield, Moore first addressed the penalty, where Kevin Long pulled back Adam Le Fondre and was duly shown a red card. ‘I think it was a pen and there was nothing the ref could do but send the lad off. And I think the sub was lucky not to be sent off too when he went straight through Tom Newey because it was an awful tackle.

‘We had most chances in the game and without their ‘keeper it could have been five or six. They are lively and sharp and the shape they play can give you one or two problems but we stuck in there and with the height advantage that we had we made good advantage of our set plays.

‘The goal we conceded from a corner, well, they do that corner all the time and we’ve practised in training all week defending that corner and we get done with it, which I find incredible and people have switched off at the wrong time. To be fair, when they went down to ten men, they still had a go

‘I thought , Lawsy’s (Nicky Law) had a good game today and his deliveries were fantastic and the long throws were causing them problems all afternoon and at half-time we should have been four up. Then late on Tayls (Ryan Taylor) has headed it and it’s come off the post and straight to their ‘keeper so I don’t think anyone can grumble about the result today. And it’s pleasing that two centre-backs have scored with two headers.

‘It’s a fantastic result for us today because there aren’t many teams who are going to come here and win. Accrington have worked their socks off to get them into the position they’re in.

‘We’ve got some really tough games to come but there are no easy games and this league is going to be so tight this year it could be set plays that are going to win it
