I'm really pleased with the lads - Warne

Speaking after yesterdays 1-1 draw against Swansea, The Millers boss Paul Warne was pleased with his teams efforts..

“They’re (Swansea) a possession-based team, very difficult to get the ball off. We watched all their pre-season games where they played a four at the back, today they kindly played a three and that killed us"

“I thought the lads worked really hard out of possession and I don’t normally come in here and congratulate the crowd but I thought the crowd got it today, they know the quality of the opposition.

“It’s not a League One game where you can throw the kitched sink, you’ve got to work hard to get the ball back. So overall I was really pleased.

“We conceded a 30-yard screamer from a £1.5m centre-half, there’s no shame in that, but I thought we limited them to very few chances, although in fairness they did miss a guilt-edged chance."

“I thought Cohen could have ripped the net off which would have been a grandstand ending but we gave people debuts, all in all I was very pleased.

“But it just goes to show how hard it is to get a point in this league, you have to leave it all out there.”

"The lads are exhausted. We definitely need to help the lads out but I was really pleased with the performance against a really good team. I don't want fans to think that every home game is going to be like that, it won't be. They are a very technical ball-playing side and a very difficult side to play against the way we play. I am chuffed."
