RUFC - Andy Warrington on his return to the team

RUFC - Andy Warrington on his return to the team

Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott admitted that it was a tough decision putting Andy Warrington in goal and dropping Conrad Logan to the bench.

Speaking after the defeat to Burton this afternoon, Scott said, 'It`s a decision I made and I`m happy with that decision.`

Speaking to MillersPlayer, Warrington, starting his first league game of the season this afternoon, said, `Obviously, the first half performance wasn`t acceptable at all and we can`t keep conceding goals, especially early on in games.

'The second half was a lot better and I thought we bombarded them but couldn`t get the equaliser and we can`t keep coming in and saying 'what if`.

'We had a good talking too at half-time but, in all fairness, we didn`t need that, because everybody came off at half-time knowing we were well below par, especially when you compare it to the way we played against Sheffield United on Tuesday. That was the biggest thing - how you can put in a performance like that then come here on Saturday and have a first half like we did.

Asked about the goal, which most of the 3,645 fans thought was offside, Andy said, 'After the lads took the shot and it took a deflection, Justin Richards was stood there and chested it in and my initial reaction was that he was offside. I went after to try and get an explanation and the linesman said that he was in an on side position when the shot went in.`

Andy was asked about the defence who Andy Scott has criticised today and he said, 'We do work on it in training but it`s just not happening at the moment and we get punished. And we aren`t getting the rub of the green at the other end of the pitch and ultimately that`s what`s costing us.`

Andy was asked how it felt to be back in the first team, and he said, 'It`s fantastic. Obviously, when you get back into a side you just want to get back to a winning start but we haven`t done that and now I`ve got to try and stay in the side now.

'Everybody knows how I feel about this club and, what happened in the summer, I never wanted to leave and I`ve just got my head down and worked hard now I`ve got back into the side. When new people come in they have different views but I made it clear that I wanted to stay here and the gaffer knows that. Pre-season went well and I didn`t sulk about things, which can sometimes happen, and it was just a case of getting on with my job and pushing Conrad hard. We have a good working relationship as I do with Jamie (Annerson)who has been unfortunate this season with the injury that he`s had. This club pays my wages and I`m very, very grateful for that and while ever they are doing that, I`ll give my whole for the club. That new stadium is being built and I`d love to play there, I really would.`
