Rotherham United Manager Paul Warne told iFOLLOW that he was really proud of how his lads played today.

Speaking after a late cruel goal robbed the Millers of all three points, Warney said, ‘We should have been out of sight. I thought we should have been three or four-one up.

‘I’m disappointed for the Rotherham fans that we didn’t win.’

And, yes, we should have been. We fought for the ball, we put some superb passes into the box for chances – although, one again, chances that weren’t taken – we really deserved all those three points against Sheffield Wednesday this afternoon.

Warney said he was disappointed to concede so late on – we all were. It was like a body blow after we’d played so well and kept the opposition quiet for much of the game. I can’t recall Marek Rodak having to make that many saves if I’m being honest.

Once again I thought Jon Taylor had a good game as did Will Vaulks who took the captains armband again this afternoon. In fact, there weren’t many players out there who don’t deserve a mention.

Warney refused to be drawn on referee Mr England and he was probably very wise. It’s the first time he’s had the whistle for a Millers game and I’m hoping it’s a long time before we see him again. And one of his linesman was as bad – how can you not tell when looking straight down the line that a player is offside? Is it because you, Mr Linesman, wasn’t up with play?

Owls Boss Steve Bruce told iFOLLOW that his team made mistakes and got punished for them. ‘We got sucked into the way they (Rotherham) wanted to play. It was a tough day but it’s always nice to get an equaliser with the last kick of the game.’

Today was a good advert for Championship football.
