POST-MATCH | It's a setback, but the lads have bounced back before - Warne

19 March 2022

Millers boss Paul Warne reflected on a tough afternoon against Shrewsbury Town at AESSEAL New York Stadium...

"It wasn't great, obviously.

"I take responsibility but I thought the game was pretty even in the first half.

"We weren't at our scintillating best, but we were against a very good Shrewsbury side.

"We knew they were going to be tough and they're one of the in-form sides in the league.

"I just thought going in 1-0 down at half time was a bit harsh on our lads.

"The sending off was a crucial part. I'm obviously biased but I thought it was a bit harsh. I thought Angus led with his arm and didn't actively elbow the lad.

"That was a big turning point for us and I thought we had a good shout for a penalty on JJ turned down as well.

"Then it was about trying to get some fresh legs on and stay in the game as long as you can.

"We tried to stay in it until about 65/70 minutes and make another sub with Mickel [Miller] thinking maybe we could get a goal and get ourselves back into it. We did have a bit of a push then, but we got done on the counter-attack.

"It was a bad day at the office. We're going to lose football games, but it's a setback."
