Rotherham United Manager Steve Evans said that his side ‘never turned up’ for the game against Cheltenham at the Abbey Business Stadium on Saturday.

But after their three-nil win Robins Manager Mark Yates was a happy chappy and dedicated the game to ex-Miller Jason Taylor who sat out because of a ‘gentleman’s agreement’ between the two managers.

Speaking to Radio Gloucestershire Yates said, ‘I thought we dominated from start to finish.

‘We matched their effort, passion and commitment and produced some really decent football and I think we should have scored more goals.

‘They had two long range shots one of which Scott (Brown) got down too and smothered and one that was a rasping drive that he’s had to parry but apart from that he’s not had much to do.

‘I think the key to the win was that we set an early tempo and once we’d scored the second goal today you could see it was game over. It was really good to score a few and keep a clean sheet and we deserved that win today.’
