Rotherham United boss, Mark Robins, said that the pitch at Griffin Park played a big part in the stalemate yesterday afternoon.

‘The fact that the grass was long and it wasn’t watered didn’t help to create a passing game,’ Robins said. ‘I feel sorry for the two hundred plus fans who travelled down to watch. I am disappointed we didn’t make the few sniffs at goal that we had count. But, we kept a clean sheet and I thought both defences coped with the long ball game.’

Brentford Manager, Andy Scott hit back at Robins saying, ‘Perhaps he will apologise to our fans when we go to Don Valley and they have to get binoculars to see the game. We haven’t got a watering facility at Griffin Park. Had we got one then it might have helped us move the ball quicker. We have lots of room for improvement but we kept a clean sheet and that could be a very good point at the end of the season.’
