Paul Warne reflects on the defeat at Accrington Stanley that ended the Millers' run of 21 games without defeat in all competitions...
“I thought that it was always going to be a really competitive game. We’ve got a target on our backs now being top of the league and it was a good occasion for their management team – who I’d like to show respect to.
“I thought first half we were really good and it was quite an open game. We didn’t take our chances first half and they definitely started better than us in the second and I was disappointed with that.
“We didn’t have enough composure on the ball and we asked for a bit more control second half.
“As always, we tried to make changes to improve us. We huffed and puffed but today wasn’t our day.
“I thought we did enough to win a game but today wasn’t our day.
“Goals always change games. As a Rotherham fan and as the Rotherham manager, you leave the ground disappointed. We were good against a good Accrington side, but it is never easy to come here, everyone knows that.
“They had some clearances off the goal line and we could have been 2-0 up at half time and the game takes a different path but it wasn’t to be. We didn’t get the crucial first goal and they did and it just became a frustrating afternoon.”
