Game highlights here
I listened to the game on AVTV and it sounds like we played quite well overall.
Of course the point has been made on here by certain fans, that Rotherham are a poor team, but you can only beat what you have in front of you.
We apparently did that very comfortably today and as far as I’m concerned you can’t do much more than that.
By the same token, we’ll meet better sides who will give us a much tougher test and that’s where we’ll see more of what we’re really about, but for today we should just be happy that we got the result.
Tony Morley is a bloke I respect and his view was that Gestede, McCormack, Ayew and Grealish all played well along with Elphick and Chester at the back.
Gestede particularly seems to have had a great game, having scored two goals from headers and being close with another effort. It just shows that if you give him the service, he’ll get you goals and the crossing was excellent today.
Ayew did well and had the right hump when he was subbed and possibly rightly so, as Morley said he’d been our most creative player, particularly in the second half. But then it’s a long season in the Championship, and we’ll need to rest players as much as possible.
It was also nice to see Grealish’s name on the scoresheet too, after he rounded the keeper and scored from a very wide angle.
Overall, that’s three points towards the tally we’ll need to avoid the imminent relegation that we’re facing, if you listen to some and I’m one happy bunny, who’s out for a few beers later to celebrate.
