Rotherham United goalkeeper, Andy Warrington told Radio Sheffield that, the game against Hereford on Saturday, should have been wrapped up at half-time.

‘After half-an-hour, I was thinking we should have been four or five up,’ Warrington said on the stations Football Heaven Show last night. ‘I think Hereford caused us a bit of panic in the box and it fell to one of their players who smashed it in. We had a couple of chances to clear but unfortunately we didn’t do that and what should have been three points turned into one.

‘I don’t think there is any cause for concern over the defending – the last couple of years we have defended really well and up to a couple of weeks ago in ten games we’d only conceded about six goals. But, I think it’s just caught up with us in the last couple of weeks. Maybe there’s been a bit of niavity defending wise and on Saturday we got punished for it. I just hope we aren’t looking back at the end of the season at those two dropped points.

‘We have a tough game on Saturday against Notts County and we will be put under a lot of pressure but I think we will be OK against a good forward line like they have. We have to get back to basics and basics is clearing our lines. They’ll be up for it on Saturday and we have to make sure we turn up and make a good account of ourselves.’

Speaking about new goalkeeping coach, Andy Dibble, the thirty-three year old said, ‘For the past couple of weeks I’ve been having to take the sessions which needs a lot of thinking about.

‘Simon Tracey did a really good job and I have a lot of time for him. But Andy Dibble coming in can only be fantastic for me and Jamie Annerson. He’s got the sessions all laid out for you so I can concentrate on my job.’
