POST MATCH | We should have taken something - Warne

17 October 2017

Paul Warne post AFC Wimbledon...

Rotherham United manager Paul Warne felt his side were unfortunate not to take something from their trip to the capital after a 3-1 defeat to AFC Wimbledon.

After a good second half performance, the Millers levelled matters after Joe Newell’s stunning volley cancelled out Lyle Taylor’s opener.

Errors then resulted in Taylor scoring twice in the final five minutes as the home side made it back-to-back wins, leaving Warne hugely frustrated that his side didn’t take anything from the game.

“The first 10 minutes were really hectic and we didn’t have any control of the play at all,” said Warne.

“They got a goal and you are never pleased when the opposition do, but it was definitely stoppable.

“I thought that for the rest f the first half we huffed and puffed without creating a great deal. We went a little too direct to Kieffer for my liking. In the second half I thought that the lads responded to what I asked them to do at half time. I thought that it was a matter if time before we scored.

“Joe Newell went on and I thought he was the best player on the pitch. He only went on for half an hour. He got that worldy goal, and because the lads have got unbelievable confidence at the minute, they believed that they were going to win. I am not saying that we went out of shape, because we didn’t, but maybe we could have had a little more game management, and we would have been a draw.”

There is a full interview on iFollow Millers shortly.
