POST-MATCH | It was a professional performance - Warne

18 September 2021

Rotherham United manager Paul Warne was left delighted after his side came away from University of Bolton Stadium with an impressive 2-0 victory this afternoon.

Both teams had opportunities in a pulsating first half at University of Bolton Stadium, but it was the Millers who were more clinical, as they went in two to the good at the break thanks to a brace from Ben Wiles.

Warne’s side saw out the result with a professional job in the second half, something which pleased the manager.

“I’m really pleased, I’d like to thank the away following, who were fantastic for us, Warne told www.themillers.co.uk.

“There were 21,000 in there today, which is a great crowd for third tier football, but we stood up to the challenge well.

“A clean sheet away from home and a couple of goals is a very satisfying day at the office for us. We could have scored more, but so could they. Overall, we’re delighted with the result.

“It’s not something that comes natural for us to sit back, but we were fatigued after a big effort the other night.

“We left it 3 v 3 on the halfway line, but that was causing problems, so we decided to move the engagement line back and just let the centre halves have it and press from there.

“All in all, it was a very professional performance from us, to come away with a 2-0 win is great.”

The Millers have bounced back well since a disappointing defeat to Fleetwood last week, taking four points from two tough away assignments.

And the manager was pleased to see his side finally getting the points their performances have merited.

“It’s always about the players, it’s not about us. Apart from a blip against Fleetwood the players have been excellent. We were unfortunate to lose against Wigan and Wednesday and should have won in midweek.

“That’s the thing with football, you can be the better team, but sometimes you don’t get what you deserve.

“I’m really pleased with their efforts. To say we played midweek and they didn’t is a phenomenal effort from us, against a very good team by the way.”

“Four points is a really good return for us from two really tough away games. I’m pleased.”
