RUFC - Warne 'Win Gives Lads Confidence For Monday'

RUFC - Warne 'Win Gives Lads Confidence For Monday'

Rotherham United Manager Paul Warne told Radio Sheffield that it was good to end the year with a win.

Speaking after the two-one win at Walsall, the Millers Boss said, 'I don't think today was a classic, it was a little bit too much end-to-end and I think both teams looked tired at times.

'The couple of times we came under pressure I thought the lads put their bodies on the line for me and there were a few good performances going forward.

'Bally (David Ball) was excellent again, Richie Towell did really well in the middle of the park and I thought Fordey (Anthony Forde) was a constant threat. So there are a lot of positives to take.'

The Millers opened the scoring in less than sixty seconds this afternoon, Semi Ajayi getting the goal with his Manager saying, 'It's always nice to score but I'd rather not see eighty-nine minutes left on the clock when we're one-nil up! It was a good start but if we'd have capitalised on that and got another I think we'd have had an easier day at the office. Their goal saw a midfield runner get in-between our two centre-halves although he finished it well. Apart from that I don't think they were enough of a threat.

'We were getting good crosses into the box and I thought Jerry (Yates) was good for us but neither him or Bally today looked like they were going to get on the end of the crosses coming into the box so I changed it at half-time and Kieffer (Moore) came on and does what he does very well and made the second goal.

'To win again today gives the lads massive confidence going into the game on Monday.'

The Millers are at home on Monday (New Years Day) when third place Blackburn are the visitors.
