Disappointing to lose - Warne

Last updated : 27 November 2019 By Millersmad

"It was a really good game and I thought both teams were going for it. I think it could have been 6-6 really.

"It was a monumental effort from the lads. They gave me everything. You don't get what you deserve sometimes."

The Millers fell behind in the first minute; "We spoke at the hotel about starting the game well but they cut inside and bent one into the top corner, which was an unbelievable goal. We should have really stopped it at source but I thought we were the stronger side first half."

“We should have probably got one or two more goals at the end of the first half and we could have gone in comfortably in the lead."

Second half, they take the lead, Carlton does really well to win us a penalty and then I felt really comfortable at 2-2. I'd been positive and made a double substitution then Billy pulls his hamstring so we we're a man down. Clark Robertson was in agony with his groin as well so we played the last ten minutes with virtually nine men."

"It's disappointing to lose. It's a long way to come. We took the game to them even with ten men.

"It sounds stupid but I leave here feeling quite happy."

"Freddie was a constant thorn," Warne said. "It wasn't a hard decision to keep the same team that finished the win last weekend. I thought Freddie's movement would cause their big centre-halves problems and it did."

Warney gave a head nod to the Millers fans that made the long trip to the south coast, "Fair play to the 200 or so, To come here is some effort. But when it's 200 in a crowd of 16,000 you don't always get what you should from the officials."
