POST-MATCH | The early goal killed us but we're still in the fight - Warne

19 April 2022

Speaking following their defeat at the Pirelli Stadium, Paul Warne re-affirmed that his Millers side are still in the hunt for Sky Bet League One automatic promotion with three games to go.

“I was frustrated obviously. We had plenty of chances to score. I thought we did enough to get back into the game but it wasn’t to be. Sometimes in football you can huff and puff as much as you like. I was waiting for the net to ripple but it never did.

“The lads’ effort was unbelievable in the last 25 minutes. We were just camped at one end. The lads are desperate to win but we were not allowed to play, in fairness to Burton, anywhere near our best. Everything we had the ball they pressed and when we tried to break, they stopped us. We are not the only team who have struggled to score against them. They defend their box really well.

“They were more physical than us, stronger than us and overall, they got the win.

“It did not help in the second half. We had injuries to Shane and Jordi down the left, and it definitely had an impact on us.

“It’s still in our hands. Another game is down I suppose. Everyone is desperate to get those last couple of wins. It’s difficult but two wins might do it for us but it feels it will go down to the wire. We have to keep believing.”
