Ronnie Moore was disappointed Rotherham failed to take all three points after seeing his side draw 1-1 with fellow promotion chasers Shrewsbury.

Adam Le Fondre opened the scoring from the penalty spot after 10 minutes before Steve Leslie scored the equaliser on the stroke of half-time.

"It was a tough old game, there's no doubt about that, but we opened as bright as we have been for a long time," Moore said.

"We had a nice little purple patch for the first half hour, and we then conceded against the run of play. We should have been out of sight really."

Moore added: "We got the one, but we just can't seem to kill teams off. We gave them a lifeline just on half-time, but credit to them in the second half, and our keeper had to make one or two really good saves What we didn't do is put our chances away when we were on top."

Shrewsbury boss Paul Simpson felt his team's second half performance deserved all three points following the draw.

Simpson said: "We rode our luck in the first half. The first 30 minutes they dominated us, but then we got to grips with it and we put them under a lot of pressure after that and all the second half.

"Apart from some outstanding saves from their goalkeeper, we would have won it.

"We are still looking for automatic promotion and we are still in it. Teams around us have got games in hand but they have to win them. We've just got to win ours.

"I reckon we are looking for another 10 wins which is a big ask, but if we are going to get automatic promotion, that's what we have got to do."
