Rotherham United got through to the next round of the Carabao Cup last night by beating fellow League One side Shrewsbury Town four-nil at the Montgomery Walkers Meadow Stadium.
When asked by iFOLLOW what he thought of his teams performance Millers Manager Paul Warne said, ‘I thought we were OK.’
Yes, Warney, we definitely were OK! I also agree with the Gaffer when he went on to say ‘we started well’ with our first two goals coming in the first three minutes!
For once the Millers took the chances that came – which is what we’ve got to keep doing. And, at the other end we kept a clean sheet – you really can’t ask more than that away from home.
Shrewsbury Manager Sam Ricketts told their Official Site, ‘The first three minutes doesn’t give you a chance in the game when you’re playing against a Championship team from last season. You can’t start a game any worse.’
The Shrews and the Millers both made changes last night, both had a player go off with a head injury in the opening six minutes but, luckily for Rotherham, we brought on a player who had a hand in the last two goals.
Sam Ricketts also said, ‘It was a real struggle as we had a young, inexperienced side playing against a real-good experienced side who last year played in the Championship.’
Well, to be honest, we also had players out there who have only played a couple of games together – Matt Olosunde has only ever played two league games.
So, the Millers get through and get a potential second round tie with our neighbours over at S6 although, of course, that isn’t certain yet as Bury could still come into the equation.
