Rotherham United Manager Paul Warne said he found the game ‘disappointing’ this afternoon after the nil-nil draw at home to Shrewsbury Town.
Speaking to Freeview the Millers Boss said, ‘Shrewsbury came here to stifle us, and I’m not criticising them for that, which they did really well. We needed to take our chances because if you score first in games like this then the other team have to come at you.
‘We have to be patient at home because the more frustrated you get the more difficult it becomes and the harder it comes to make the correct decision on the ball.’
Shrewsbury did a job on us today and I think more teams are going to come and stop us playing our flowing football. But, I don’t think it’s so much about being patient I think it’s more about finding a way to counteract that and, as Warney says, we’ve got to make any chance we get count.
We’ve got to learn how to break down a ten man defence which is what Shrewsbury had for most of the game today – but I do find myself wondering if this game had been played on a Saturday when we’d not had to travel for a Tuesday night game would it have been different? I thought some of our players looked jaded today – not all of them – while others didn’t look fit. I’m also wondering if Julien Lamy could have come off the bench for fifteen minutes or so and shown us what he can do down the wing?
Hey ho, that’s all in hindsight and now we have to concentrate on the game next weekend away at Bristol Rovers where there is going to be at least one player who wants to score against Rotherham.
