The players worked hard - Warnock

Neil Warnock post Reading...

Rotherham United manager Neil Warnock again admitted his side could have got something from the game after a narrow 1-0 defeat at Reading.

Hal Robson-Kanu’s second half strike gave the hosts the victory in a game that could have gone either way.

After the game Warnock again thought his side could have got more, and he vowed that the Millers would fight on in their battle for Championship survival.

“I have been here for three games and we could have got something from every game, so it is disappointing,” he said.

“The players are working hard, we have had a couple of chances and I don’t think Campy has had a shot to save, and yet we have ended up losing it to a mistake. 

“We are going to have another go, we are tighter and we are giving ourselves chances to get something from the games. 

“We just lack a little bit of the quality that some of the other teams have, but it is not for the lack of trying.”

The Millers have players coming back from lay-offs but Warnock admitted it is difficult nursing them back into the first-team environment.

“It is difficult because we have had so many lads coming back from injury who haven’t played for months and months,” he added.

“The reason is that they are not fit enough and will pick up a lot of injuries and niggles and there is not a lot we can do about it.  

“We just hope that we can get a decent 11 out there on Saturday. We have a couple more injuries in there, but I am sure that we will be able to regroup.”

Warnock says the fight for survival will continue this weekend as the Millers prepare for a home showdown with Brentford at AESSEAL New York Stadium.

“We have just got to keep going,” he concluded.

“It is hard when you are in a relegation battle, but we have games to play and although we are playing all the top teams at the minute, we could have got a result in all the three games I have been here.”
