ROTHERHAM United manager Ronnie Moore praised his side’s “hunger and desire” as they hit back to rescue a vital point at Torquay last night.

“Once again we’ve had to come from behind away from home, it has happened far too often, but I have to praise what they showed, there was really hunger and desire to get something,” said Moore after the 1-1 draw.

“We’ve have been on top for 70 minutes and had them on the ropes in the second half. Their keeper has played a blinder and we’ve hit the post twice and the bar.

“Had Alf (Adam Le Fondre) not had the penalty saved earlier in the second half then I reckon we’d have romped it from there. It was a really good finish from Ryan Taylor and they certainly deserved something and, really, deserved to win.”

Meanwhile, Port Vale have extended the loan deal of Rotherham striker Tom Pope by a further month.
