Rotherham made it a happy return to Crawley for boss Steve Evans by coming back from a goal down to clinch their first league victory of the season.

Defender Mat Sadler gave Crawley the lead with an angled left-footed free-kick, which sailed into the top corner.

The Millers levelled when Kieran Agard struck to head in from close range

David Worrall settled the issue by firing low into the bottom corner for his first goal for Rotherham following a cross by Michael O'Connor.

VIEW FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Crawley Town manager Richie Barker told BBC Sussex:

"We might as well record an interview and play it week in, week out at the minute because mistakes are costing us.

"We try and make the players as prepared as we can be and I said to them that if you deal with set pieces and you deal with balls in the box then you've got every chance of winning the game.

"You can only give the players the information and after that you've got to let them stand on their own two feet.

"My players are the best-prepared players in this division, in terms of the knowledge that they get for what we have available to us, and sometimes you've got to rely on them."

Rotherham United manager Steve Evans told BBC Radio Sheffield:

"I fancied us to win today. We went a goal behind and it's a bad goal to lose.

"I think our defending is [usually] good, so we need to look at it.

"There was a game plan today to introduce David Worrall. He's been electric the last couple of games when he's come on.

"And I said he'll probably get the winner for us and he did."
