Rotherham United Manager Paul Warne might have been disappointed that a behind closed doors friendly with neighbours Sheffield United was called off but surely it was the right decision.

Former Miller and Blades Assistant Manager Alan Knill had suggested to the Rotherham Boss that, during the break in football because of the coronavirus, that the teams played a friendly game.

And, although the Millers Boss thought it would be a brilliant idea the clubs took advice from the EFL and called the game off.

Yes, it would have been a great motivator for the players and to play a game instead of just doing the normal every day training would probably have kept the spirits up but I think it really wasn’t on was it?

People are self-isolating, walking round in masks, keeping a trolley distance away from each other when they have to go out to get essential shopping so for two sets of players who haven’t been together since before the season was called to a halt I think really would have been frowned upon.

After all, at the moment it’s all about keeping safe and taking care of ourselves.
