Another good point, says Warnock

Neil Warnock post Huddersfield Town...

Rotherham United manager Neil Warnock described tonight’s draw with Huddersfield Town as another good point as the Millers edged towards the Championship safety mark.

Warnock’s side have now gone 10 games unbeaten and remain nine points in front of third bottom MK Dons with three games remaining.

The Millers took the lead at the AESSEAL New York Stadium through a deflected Greg Halford strike, but were pegged back before half-time when Nahki Wells equalised for the Terriers.

“I thought we dominated the early stages; the equaliser knocked us a little bit and stopped us from playing,” Warnock said after the game.

“Leon Best has been struggling with a hernia, and it was a bit inflamed so it was more a precaution. 

“Danny Ward has really been busting a gut to get in, and I thought he did well along with Grant Ward as it was a difficult game for him.

“I thought Richard Wood held us together well, he was outstanding.”

Both sides had chances to take all three points in the second half, but Warnock was happy with a point as his side look to cement their place in the second tier against Wolves this Saturday.

“As the game went on, I thought we had chances to win it,” added Warnock.

“They had chances, it was what you would expect from a Yorkshire derby – a good point for both teams.

“If you look at their away results, they have done quite well due to the system they play. 

“It is 10 games undefeated for the club tonight in the Sky Bet Championship, you have to take your hats off to the players, and they all defend from the front right back to Camp – all credit to them.”

It was another performance full of grit and determination from Warnock’s Millers, which has typified their incredible unbeaten streak.

The Millers boss was again full of admiration for his players, who have now moved above Bristol City in the Championship standings ahead of the trip to Molineux.

“We have had some great performances, away at Ipswich and Sheffield Wednesday, home to Middlesbrough - but we hang in there and that is what we are about,” he affirmed.

“The lads have been a credit to me. I was pleased tonight because Huddersfield is a team very close to my heart. I had a great time there and it is a credit to where they are now.

“They listen on the training ground, and they do what exactly is asked of them and the belief spreads it is like anything else.

“When I have lads putting in a shift week in, week out, there is nothing better for me. Being up in Yorkshire I have really enjoyed it, and the stadium is fantastic - all credit to the Chairman.”
