Great point, says Warnock

Neil Warnock post Bristol City...

Rotherham United manager Neil Warnock again heaped praise on his side after they claimed another vital point in the race for Championship survival after a 1-1 draw with Bristol City.
The Millers took the lead at Ashton Gate after a well taken goal from Matt Derbyshire, but they were pegged back in the second half after a Peter Odemwingie equaliser for the Robins.
After the game Warnock again gave his side a pat on the back after another hard fought point, with Lee Camp excelling with two first class saves either side of half-time.
“I thought it was a really good performance,” said Warnock.
“The lads gave everything and I cannot complain. It was a fabulous goal. It was a great ball from Woody (Richard Wood) and he (Derbyshire) took it well. I just felt that there was another goal in it before half-time, because I knew that they would get stronger at the start of the second half.
“After the goal, rather than come at us, I thought we coped quite well after that and I thought that we came into it. There was a good chance for Wardy but Campy has made two good saves.

“That’s Campy for you. We said to him if you are not sure then let the centre halves deal with it, and he’ll get us out of the cart after. It wasn’t just him. I thought that Richard Wood, who hasn’t played for a few weeks, I thought he was superb. The ball for the goal – you don’t always see it, it was a like a Beckenbauer pass wasn’t it?”

The Millers boss again highlighted the Millers fighting spirit, with both Kirk Broadfoot and Greg Halford both staying on and playing through the pain barrier.

“Broady was struggling at half-time with an injury, Greg Halford wanted to come off, 10 minutes into the second half he couldn’t move his neck,” Warnock added.

“We managed to keep him on the pitch and I think that epitomises everything about the team at the minute. I think that they are a good group. 

“At home Bristol City are a really good side, so it is a great point for us. We go to MK Dons now, the Championship is a great league and we all want to be in it.

“I have a lot of time for Bristol City, I see them having a right go next year.”
