AUDIO: Eric Black on Rotherham United's defeat to Burnley and his future plans

Have your say

Eric Black maintained he is still not giving thought to taking up the reins at Rotherham United after his first match in temporary charge ended in defeat to Burnley.

The Millers went a goal down early in the game with Andre Gray opening the scoring but an improved second half display by the home side saw them dragged back into the game thanks to a stunning strike from Grant Ward.

However, Rotherham's hard work was undone with 10 minutes remaining when Sam Vokes scored what turned out to be the winner for the Clarets.

This was the Millers first game following the departure of Steve Evans on Monday and though much of the talk in the run up to the televised clash was about who might take up the manager's role, Black admitted, as he did earlier in the week, that his focus has been on team matters, rather than whether he will throw his hat into the ring for a permanent position.

I have no intention of seeking anything out, I have been asked by the chairman and I was flattered," he said.

"I will just carry on until a decision is made. The chairman will make a decision that is right for the club. I am here, I am employed by the club, I will go along with that and see where it takes us.

"I just want to go and have a lie down. We are two men down on the training ground which puts a little bit of pressure on. We'll reflect on the game and carry on from there."
