Paul Warne post Chesterfield...

Paul Warne took a number of positives, but also admitted there were areas to work on after a 1-3 victory over Chesterfield.

Goals from David Ball, Jon Taylor and Ryan Williams secured a good win for the visitors, with Warne hailing the Millers after a dominant first-half display.

Warne admitted that there were parts of the second-half that were less pleasing, but overall he took plenty of positives away from the Proact Stadium.

“I thought that we were outstanding in the first-half,” said Warne.

“They played three at the back and tried to play out but we play a high press, which is how we want to play, and as a result we got the ball back in good areas.

“We could have been well out of sight by half-time, so to go in at the break 2-0 up, I was pretty happy with the way that we played. I just wish we would have scored more goals.

“In the second-half, I presume they might have got it from their manager. I didn’t think that we performed as well in the second-half and I have enjoyed telling the players that their standards can’t drop. I was a bit disappointed with the second-half, obviously I made lots of changes and I understand that can affect the fluency of the game.

“It was nice to win. We brought a few fans here so it was nice for them. I just want more.

“We competed second-half, and we scored one but I just don’t think that we created enough.

“We just said in there how many of the team made unforced errors, and there was quite a few hands up.

“We need crease that out, but that’s the point of pre-season so I am not getting too analytical on it. We are just trying to get the best out of the players and get them ready for next weekend.”

The Millers take on Barnsley at the AESSEAL New York Stadium this Saturday, kick off 3pm.
