Rotherham United Manager Steve Evans was delighted with the way his team battled for their one-nil win against Brighton and Hove Albion at the New York Stadium yesterday afternoon.

Meanwhile, the Seagulls` Manager Chris Hughton said his team probably didn’t deserve to get anything from the game because of their first half performance.

Speaking to their Official Site, the Albion Boss said, ‘I thought we threatened a lot in the second half but the difficulty we have at the moment is that we`re struggling to score goals.

‘We gave a really poor defensive goal away and we know Rotherham are desperate to get the points here so they are going to press you and make it difficult and we really had to be better in that first half period. For the goal the lad crossed from a real tight angle and we have to do better to try and stop that cross.

‘I don`t think we could have done any more technically in the second half. We ended up with four forward players on and we threatened and I thought we could have got back into the game.

‘And I wasn`t happy with the referee`s performance. There were so many stoppages in that first half period. There were a lot of fouls, though not malicious fouls, but so many stoppages which suited them.

‘But we need to start better in games and be more productive in that final third.`
