Neil Redfearn thrilled as Rotherham United post back-to-back wins

30 November 2015

Rotherham United manager Neil Redfearn says the signs are good for his side in their bid to beat the Sky Bet Championship drop this season.

The Millers recorded a second victory in a row on Saturday, this time over Bristol City, giving them back-to-back wins for the first time under Redfearn.

Rotherham dispatched comfortably of the Robins, after a brace from Jonson Clarke-Harris and a goal from Lee Frecklington saw them to a 3-0 scoreline.

Redfearn was particularly pleased with the defensive qualities of his players at the AESSEAL New York Stadium, and welcomed another much-needed three points.

“It’s a couple of wins and it’s a long old season. I didn’t get too down when it wasn’t so good and I don’t want to get carried away now,” Redfearn rold the club's official website.

“I know the nature of the Championship, it’s a tough division but the signs are good. When games have nothing in them like at Leeds last week, we look mentally tough as a group.

“I think the presence of some experience has helped and if you look at the back four, it was really experienced with Danny Collins at left back – and its helped it’s given us a platform.

“I know it’s a really boring thing to say, but I was more pleased with the clean sheet. Bristol City have had some good results recently, and to 'nil' them, is a good achievement.

“I’ve always been told that the harder you work, the luckier you get, and we deserve this clean sheet.”
