Rotherham United Manager Paul Warne has nothing but praise for the opposition, Rochdale, yesterday after they broke the fourteen game unbeaten run the Millers had been on.

But Dale Boss Keith Hill wasn’t so complimentary hinting that the Millers staff were arrogant before kick-off.

‘I spend a lot of time outside the changing room on match days,’ Hill said, ‘and there was a general sense in and around the stadium, from the staff, was that they were going to roll us over.

‘When you come to big clubs, there is an arrogance, and rightly so. I`m not saying it`s a bad arrogance. It`s a good arrogance. Karma`s a strange thing, isn`t it?’

Warney told Paul Davis of ‘The Star, ‘I’d like to think he doesn’t think our coaching staff are arrogant. We’ve been banging the drum about how hard this game was going to be all week so none of my staff at anytime thought we would win big.’

Speaking to Rochdale’s Official Site Hill carried on, ‘It was probably the best performance of the season. We were miles better than them (Rotherham) today. I thought our players were outstanding. We`ve found ourselves in a hole but the type of appetite that we`ve shown today and expressed within the level of performance is encouragement, but encouragement is all it is at this moment in time.’

There’s no two ways about it Rochdale were the better side yesterday. The Millers passing was slow and readable, the players slow to get back into position. We’d wingers on the pitch but they didn’t appear to be playing on the wing. I’ll be honest I didn’t think we played well against Doncaster and yesterday seemed to carry on from that game, albeit we fought and got two late goals. In my eyes there was little fight yesterday. But, as someone once famously said in a film, ‘tomorrow is another day’.

  • Is there only me finds it strange that Keith Hill ‘spends a lot of time outside the dressing rooms’ – shouldn’t he be in there geeing his players on?
