Daniel Nardiello's double and a goal for Ben Pringle had his side 3-2 up with just over half an hour on the clock before man of the match Lee Frecklington finally settled the goal-fest with Rotherham's fourth in added time.

Evans said: "We have a habit of making things difficult for ourselves and after going a goal down so quickly we showed some character.

"It was a big performance. We played some special stuff in periods. It was a pity we had to wait so long for the fourth goal because I think our performance deserved a more comfortable win.

"When I joined this football club I said it was going to be a roller coaster ride, but I didn't realise it would be 3,000 feet high.

"We said to the boys we were going to play with pride and passion, but what a response we gave the supporters and what a response they gave us back. We were a goal down after 50 seconds, and I said to my staff on the bench, listen to the supporters, and that was for them."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
