POST-MATCH | It's a really positive start - Warne

30 July 2022

Paul Warne was full of praise for his Millers side after a solid start on home soil in the form of a 1-1 draw with Swansea City...

"I thought that we limited them to very few chances and that's all we can do.

"I thought on another day, Cohen [Bramall] might have taken the net off when he got clean through.

"Overall, I was really pleased with the performance.

"I'd like to say that I was really pleased with the fan base.

"Maybe I'm putting a romantic spin on it but I just thought that they showed an understanding of how difficult this league is for us and how tough an opposition it was for us.

"They applauded it when we got them in positions to go backwards when we pressed and when you see the physical outputs of my players you can't not be proud of them.

"If they'd have scored in the last minute, I'd have been heartbroken but it wouldn't have taken away from their level of performance.

"Rathbone had a sore quad. We rested him all week and he's got a Grade 1, so it's nothing really. However, when he was being reintroduced into training, he could still feel it.

"I wasn't prepared to risk it, but it would have been a perfect game for Ollie.

"Pelts has only trained one day, although he looks in unbelievable shape. I try and run a fair camp and the other lads in front of him were more match fit, so I think he needs a bit of training before I can consider him."
