'If It's Football, It's Vital'

RUFC - Warrington 'feel gutted'

Rotherham United Goalkeeper, Andy Warrington, says he was gutted when the referee awarded a penalty to Aldershot in time added on last Saturday.

Speaking to MillersWorld, the thirty-two year old said, 'I don't think it was a penalty. Nick (Fenton) got the man yes but he got the ball first and he's bitterly disappointed. We were under the cosh but feel gutted about the penalty. Another day I might have saved it but I think the pace and power did me.

'We were second best to everything in the first half and our passing game never got started. We don't like to make excuses but we have played a lot of games in a short space of time. We started slowly and the pitch was holding a lot of water especially at the corners. When the lads were trying to make tackles they were slipping all over the place but it's a sign of a good side when you are under the cosh and can take everything they threw at us and we thought we'd just done enough. I believe if the game had been played an hour later there would have been a serious danger it would have been called off. Aldershot have the makings of a good side and they played well but we will know what to expect from them in the replay and Don Valley is a different experience for visiting teams.

'We've got to pick ourselves up because we've got a massive game on Tuesday. Stoke will probably be our toughest test this season. They've got a hell of a lot of quality from set pieces. I have no idea how I'm going to defend against Roy Delaps long throws if he plays! We've got to get fit, get some rest and get our minds set right and go to Stoke and put in a good performance.'
