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

RUFC - Warney would love to have played Friday

Rotherham United's Fitness Coach, Paul Warne said he'd have loved to have played in a big game like the one on Friday night,, though he'd probably have been that frustrated he would have got a booking.

Speaking to MillersPlayer after training, Warney said, 'The lads were a bit low in training but it's difficult after a five-nil drubbing against a local team on the telly. A lot of people are hurting and it's embarrassing for the players.

'On Saturday the lads watched the DVD and the other lads who trained with me, their attitude was spot on as I expected it to be. Their ego's a bit bruised but you have to pick yourself up and wash yourself down and get on with it. We've had an eleven v eleven today and it's been hard and competitive and they are all fighting for their shirts come the weekend. Hopefully we can put it right at Lincoln.

'If you ask me how much character is in this team, after the other day, there wasn't a great deal to be fair but you'll have to judge the team by the way they bounce back on Friday. I like to think there are leaders in the team but the proof is in the pudding so to speak.'

Asked about the promotion situation, Warney said, 'My opinion hasn't really changed since the start of the season. Obviously Chesterfield have run away with it and there are six spots up for grabs. In all honesty I still think one of the best sides in the league are Gillingham who I've seen play a couple of times and, I think, if you finish above them you'll get automatic. Torquay have had a little run but we battered them at their place not long ago and we were unfortunate not to come away with a win. Bury have got a few more points than us so they will be up there so it's got to the stage, where I personally think, that the last five games, apart from the Chesterfield game, we have played really well but without accumulating many points. But now it doesn't matter how you play it's just about getting points.

'I'd love to have played in the game on Friday night but I don't know how far or close I am in the gaffers plans. Although, today, I was probably the best player in training and I think I understand the game a lot more than other people. Obviously I'd love to play and if I picked the team I would!'
