STEVE Evans claimed that he felt lower than in any time over the past few years as a manager after his Rotherham United side lost to the League Two’s bottom-side Bristol Rovers - the Millers’ seventh home defeat of the season.

Two’s bottom-side Bristol Rovers - the Millers’ seventh home defeat of the season.

Evans blamed individual errors for the goals conceded and also claimed some didn’t work hard enough in the first half.

“But it isn’t about individuals, we all, collectively, have to take the blame and I put the team out there and decide the shape and system,” he said.

“It’s the lowest I’ve been in the past four or five years as a manager.”

Claude Davis, on his debut, was sent off for a second booking and so misses next Saturday’s home game with Northampton.

Before kick off chairman Tony Stewart thanked volunteers who cleared the pitch of snow to enable the game to go ahead.
