READ | Warne calls for Millers to show character throughout at QPR

24 November 2020

Rotherham United manager Paul Warne says his side will be looking to take the game to their opponents when they travel to Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium to face Queens Park Rangers tonight.

The manager has called on his charges to impose themselves on the opposition, following his side’s narrow defeat to Swansea City on Saturday.

Despite putting in a spirited second half display, the Millers were edged out courtesy of Matt Grimes’ first half strike and Warne is looking for his team to take their second half showing and turn it into a 90 minute display against the R’s.

“I was happy with our second half display but I think it’s always easier when you’re chasing a game at the end. You need that character for the whole game, not just the bit part," Warne explained. 

“I can handle losing football matches that is fine, there’s just a level of performance that I expect, I just don’t think we had it in the first half.

“We need to raise our standards a little bit from the Swansea game. We’re a pretty good away from home team I think. We are going to try and take the game to them and we need to be a little braver on the ball.

“QPR have had a bit of an indifferent start, but a start that has seen them accumulate a lot of points so far. I like the way they play and I like their manager Mark Warburton, he’s someone I’ve liked since his Brentford days, so I’ve got a lot of respect for the way they play.

“If we’re going to win football games we need to impose ourselves on the opposition and that is the intention we will have travelling down.”
