Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott said that his team responded well to the tough game on Saturday against Gillingham at Don Valley saying that he thought his lads were ‘outstanding`.

Meanwhile, Gills boss, Andy Hessenthaler said he thought his side gave Rotherham the impetus.

Speaking to Gills Official Site after the three-nil loss, Hessenthaler said, ‘We looked comfortable in the first half without making a lot of chances, which is probably what let us down.

‘At half-time we said that we looked solid and were never really in any danger. We were on top but when you`re on top you have to punish teams and, unfortunately, we didn`t punish them.

‘We gave them the impetus, gave them confidence and ended up losing the game.`

Hessenthaler wasn`t happy with the Millers first goal, which initially came from a Millers throw-in that should really have gone the visitors` way. ‘That was clearly our throw I could see that from the other side of the pitch. But saying that, you can`t rely on officials and we should have defended better from then on. After conceding the first goal we ran out of ideas and looked a poor side.`
