Evans will deal with Nardiello af­ter red

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE - By Stu­art Dunn

ROTHER­HAM man­ager Steve Evans ad­mit­ted Daniel Nardiello will be dealt with af­ter the striker went from hero to zero as the points were shared at the New York Sta­dium.

Nardiello headed Rother­ham level for the sec­ond time just sec­onds af­ter be­ing sent on as a sub.

But his joy turned to mis­ery when he was shown a red card by ref­eree Dean White­stone as the teams left the field.

“It will be dealt with in­ter­nally and I'm not go­ing to go pub­lic with what I've said to Daniel,” said boss Evans.

“He’s come on and scored a goal for us. The kid's hun­gry, he’s not played a minute for three weeks, he’s be­come a new fa­ther and what was po­ten­tially a very good week for him has be­come a bad week. He was al­most in tears af­ter­wards.

“We have an in­ter­nal code of dis­ci­pline and he’ll be dealt with ac­cord­ingly.”

Jon Tay­lor headed Shrews­bury in front in the 20th minute, start­ing a flow­ing move with a pos­i­tive run from in­side his own half be­fore Luke Sum­mer­field and Paul Parry joined in, the winger on hand to head in the lat­ter’s invit­ing cross from the right.

Tay­lor was close to dou­bling the ad­van­tage when his well-struck 25yard ris­ing drive was tipped over by Scott Shearer.

The Millers found chances hard to come by against a well-drilled vis­it­ing back­line in which teenager Ryan Woods made an as­sured full Football League de­but at right-back.

The hosts equalised 11 min­utes into the sec­ond half, Alex Rev­ell fir­ing a low drive into the bot­tom cor­ner from 20 yards, but Shrews­bury were quickly back in front.

Tay­lor was heav­ily in­volved with a weav­ing run across the box and when Sum­mer­field’s shot was par­ried by Shearer, Tom Brad­shaw was on hand to turn in the re­bound.

The Millers again re­sponded brightly with sub Nardiello, last sea­son’s top scorer, nod­ding in Ben Pringle’s free-kick from the right for a share of the spoils – only for his day to end on a sour note. “There were pas­sages of play when we played very well,” said Shrews­bury boss Gra­ham Turner.“We looked likely to cre­ate chances and to score. I was pleased with us when we had the ball.

“We knew there would be a prob­lem with their power, their long balls into our box, and for the ma­jor­ity of the game we dealt rea­son­ably well with play­ers who can be a hand­ful.

“We got caught two or three times which was dis­ap­point­ing but I’ve got to say there’s a lot of room for en­cour­age­ment.” To comment on this match go to http://boards.footy­mad.net/
