Rotherham United Manager Paul Warne admitted that he felt like it was two points dropped yesterday against Bolton Wanderers at the New York Stadium.
Having drawn their previous two home games the Millers looked like being on course for all three points until the last five minutes when some sloppy play gave Bolton their chance to equalise which they said ‘thank you very much’ and did just that.
Not want to criticise the players Warney told iFOLLOW that his team should be scoring more goals.
And they should. But we say the same week after week don’t we. We have the chances but we don’t take them. We hit the post twice yesterday which is always, I feel, unfortunate but we had other chances too when the ball went wide or over the top and we really should at the very least be making the opposition goalkeeper make a save.
Warney also said, ‘Bolton made subs and had four outstanding players on the pitch at the end but I thought the lads stood up to the task well.
‘I think we’re in a good run of form. Our away form needs addressing obviously.’
In a good run of form – are we? Well, yes, at home I think we probably are because, although we might not have won that many we have only lost one game at home and that was back in August against Hull City.
Does our away form need addressing? Blimey not half.
Meanwhile Bolton Boss Phil Parkinson told their Official Site that ‘Rotherham’s play puts you under pressure and we had to handle their long balls into the box from throw-ins and set-plays and I thought in the main, we did that well. We always want three points, but you should never undervalue one, especially away from home and at a place like Rotherham because this is a tough place to come and a lot of teams will find that this season.’
