Paul Warne talks to www.themillers.co.uk...
Rotherham United boss Paul Warne believes that his side should have a good indication of their progress in Sky Bet League One after their home tie with Northampton Town next weekend, which marks the end of three fixtures in seven days.
The Millers manager says the third tier table will give a closer reflection of where clubs are likely to be in the final standings after the next couple of rounds of matches and admits he is pleased with the progress his side have made in the early stages of the 2017/18 season.
“We've got three games in a week and I think by Wednesday-week it's a good guideline of where or whereabouts you are,” Warne told www.themillers.co.uk.
“We set out to try and be top 10 and as we speak now we're in it, so we're pretty pleased with our start.
“I think our point collection could have been a lot more and our performances have been really good and it's still a really young team.”
As well as expressing his pleasure at the club’s current league standing, Warne was quick to point out that he has been delighted with how his side are enjoying day-to-day life at Roundwood and admits there is still room for his young squad to improve.
“From my point of view, I'm trying to manage everything and it's nice to know that they enjoy coming into work and they want to win games for this club"
“They haven't played together that much and we've got some really good young players at the club, so it isn't going to happen overnight as much as I would like it to.
“If we won every game it would be ace but I think the lads are trying to play the way we want them to play and I really like them as a group, so it's enjoyable coming into work every day and training them.
“We're really pleased with the group we've got and I've had a couple of lads in here today questioning why they're not in the first 11, which they're entitled to do. But we then have a conversation about how they think things are going and they're all really pleased with the group and facilities they're in and they just feel like it's a good place to be.”
