Rotherham United Manager Paul Warne said that he thought his side deserved the win today and he was ‘pleased but not ecstatic’ with the performance.

Speaking after the two-nil defeat of Plymouth at the New York Stadium the Millers Boss told IFollow that he thought the Millers were the more threatening side although admitted that he’d like them to have had the ball more.

‘Plymouth are a really good possession based team,’ Warne said, ‘but there were pockets of really good play from us and, I think, with a third goal it would have been a more comfortable afternoon but it is something for us to build on and I’m pleased that we won.

‘I thought we looked dangerous in the final third and we were pretty well organised but that third goal was a bit elusive. But I think our throw-ins need to improve, our communication wasn’t really at it today and there was a bit of rustiness but then I’m nit-picking.’

I think he is nit-picking. I’m not sure that our ‘keeper had to make a save this afternoon. I actually thought our passing was better than I’ve seen in the last couple of seasons, our energy was good and the subs came on and just fitted straight in – in the last few season’s I’ve questioned some of the changes our Manager has made but today they did well. Yes, we made a couple of mistakes and yes we missed a couple of, I won’t say sitters, but shots that probably should have gone in. But it was so nice to come away from our first game for such a long time with a smile on our faces. More of it, please.
