Paul Warne talks to

Rotherham United boss Paul Warne insists he will not overreact to Tuesday’s defeat at Blackburn Rovers by making mass changes to his side ahead of the weekend’s visit of Northampton Town.

The Millers were beaten 2-0 by Rovers in midweek with Warne left ruing his team’s slow start to proceedings at Ewood Park, and whilst he admits there is likely to be a reshuffle in personnel at the weekend, he maintains that there is no need for wholesale changes.

“There was some poor performances from certain individuals, but then in fairness the collective wasn't good, so it's hard to be an amazing player in a poor side like we were first half,” he told

“I'm not berating them, but there are obvious changes that I'm going to have to make and I'm also considering a little tweak here or there.

“There will be obvious changes but there hasn't been a lot wrong, so I don't see the point in all of sudden looking at the team and worrying. I think sometimes you do get that odd game and like we've said, it was one poor 45 minutes, 10 games in.”

The Rotherham United manager continued to reiterate that he is happy with the strength in depth at his disposal and says discussions are ongoing ahead of the weekend as he and his staff look to finalise the lineup ahead of the clash with the Cobblers.

“I've always harped on about how good my squad is and there is no point having a good squad if you don't make changes when needed.”

“If I was going to be really reactive, I could change a lot of players.

“I don't think any team is excellent for every game, every minute but that's what we strive for and that's what we'll try and get.

“We'll look at the lads training today and we speak all the time. We've already had a discussion about the team and we'll do it again this afternoon and again tomorrow. Then we'll work on the team again tomorrow.”
