Rotherham United’s foray into the Carabao Cup might have come to a sticky end at the hands of the Toffees of Everton last night but Paul Warne’s men played with passion and commitment and earned a standing ovation from the travelling Millers fans at the end of the game.

I don’t think there was one player who didn’t give his all for the cause and with the stats showing that we had forty-seven per cent of possession I think it shows that it was very much an ‘end-to-end’ game.

Yes, Everton were the better side but there were times in the game if you hadn’t have known which team was in the Premier League then you’d have had a hard time picking.

Our goal came at a good time, and from a corner, but I then think we got a bit excited and the Blues went straight up the other end to get a third. If we’d held on for another couple of minutes who knows what might have happened? ¬†And at least Will Vaulks got to do his trademark back flip.

Good Luck to Everton in the next round, whoever you get.
