Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott, thought it was a good game against Huddersfield Town yesterday afternoon.

Speaking to MillersPlayer after the three-one loss, Scott said, ‘It was a good test on a baking hot day and I thought for seventy or seventy-five minutes we were outstanding. They changed their shape at half-time to combat, what I would imagine, was our good play which shows how well we did.

‘We looked very organised and created a lot of chances but we just got a little bit tired towards the end against a very good side who made a lot of substitutions. We didn’t have so many subs because one or two are carrying little knocks and we didn’t want to risk them.

”The lads took everything on board what we’d told them and we improved from minute one. But there are still areas we need to work on and be a bit more clinical. But the organisation was excellent and the front three looked a danger and our energy and work rate was excellent and I was very, very pleased with it.

‘I’m delighted that Chris Holroyd got on the score sheet, although it was a poachers goal from a yard out, but he worked ever so hard today. Those three (Holroyd, Adam Le Fondre and Lewis Grabban) linked up very well and with the three behind them that have got the energy they’ve got it’s certainly promising.

‘There’s been some good performances over the pre-season games and everyone has given me food for thought and the last couple of games has made us realise that we can play different ways and we’ve got a few strings to our bow which is also promising.’
