AFTER receiving a mixed reception from the fans after their unlucky defeat at Dagenham, Rotherham United manager Andy Scott said he can understand their reaction.

“It’s natural, the fans are annoyed we have not won and vent their anger,” said the Millers boss.

“But everyone saw it and saw that we played well enough to win comfortably. I can’t think of a game where we’ve made more chances.

“There were those who acknowledged what they saw. Some of our forward play was fantastic and no one could doubt they all gave everything, they showed spirit and togetherness. But it’s just going against us at the moment.”

Scott gave debuts to on-loan right winger Kieron Cadogan and ex-Doncaster defender Richard Naylor who was in for hamstring victim Johnny Mullins.

Mark Bradley, after being out since October, returned and played at right back with Scott saying that he felt they had “struggled” in that position this season.

It was Rotherham’s third straight defeat and their fourth defeat in their last five matches. They remain 13th.
