Paul Warne post-Hull City...
Millers Manager Paul Warne reflected on his side’s 3-2 defeat at the hands of Hull City this evening.
Warne’s side showed plenty of fight to come back from 3-1 down despite taking the lead through Richard Wood, as Jamie Proctor led the fightback as a second-half substitute with a neat header on his return to league action.
Speaking to the press, Warne said: “I think a draw possibly would have been a fair result. We had enough chances and missed a couple of great chances late on. I think the two minute either side of half-time killed us, really. Going in at half-time at one-all would have been a fair outcome. I always fancy us to score goals in the second-half here, especially.
“We changed the system and, in fairness to the lads, have given everything they could, physically. A couple of individual errors, but I’ve got a really honest, great group in there and have put their hands up. We’ll try and learn from it quickly because you get punished in this league. We’ll dust them down and go again Sunday.”
Rotherham piled on the pressure late on and could have levelled through either Wood or Ajayi.
“I think they created enough chances to take something out of the game. And it’s never nice to see another team celebrate at your ground, we haven’t had that here for a while. It’s disappointing but the games come thick and fast and we’ve got to pick them up again.
“Fundamentally there were errors, we’ve given them goals and we need to stop it.
“In fairness to Hull, I congratulate them for the win but for the last 15 minutes they were hanging on. We were running over them a little bit and obviously they tried to break but the lads have got to take credit for that and, hopefully, we’ll take that into Sunday.”
