Ronnie demands Moore from Millers

Ronnie Moore has urged his Rotherham side to be more dominant at the Don Valley Stadium following their 1-1 draw with Stevenage.

The Millers have won three and drawn three of their six home fixtures so far in League Two, but Moore was left to bemoan more dropped points after John Mousinho's 82nd-minute strike cancelled out Nicky Law's first-half opener.

"When we gain possession we are not cute enough and clever enough,'' said Moore. "The only time we were was when we scored."

On Stevenage's equaliser, he added: "We had two opportunities to clear and didn't and they just stabbed the ball home.

"The disappointing thing for me is we dealt with all the balls they threw into the box - and they do throw balls into the box - and we got caught by one played into the box.

"We defended well, but I was unhappy with the midfield. It sticks out like a sore thumb. We need someone who is going to get on the ball and take the sting out of the game."

Having watched his side battle back from behind to earn a share of the spoils, Stevenage boss Graham Westley was left to reflect on a "sterling performance".

He said: "We took the game to Rotherham, the bulk of the play in the first half was ours and I lost count of the number of corners we earned from some excellent attacking play.

"Rotherham had a tough afternoon, but it was a real shock to concede just before half-time. It was a real body blow and we stuttered at the start of the second half.

"But the last half hour, we got the ball down, and we were positive, penetrating and causing problems and the equaliser was terrific and I was really disappointed that we didn't get the winner.
