That was satisfying - Warney

An injury time goal front Ben Wiles in front of the 1500 Rotherham fans kept the Millers at the top of the league and ensured pandamonium in the away end.

"It felt like one of the most satisfying wins I’ve had as a manager.” Warne told

“It’s always the same away from home when you shoot to your fans and there were a lot of them here today, which I thank them for. For that goal to go in so late on, I was praying we would hang on. It was a nervy five minutes and I was really pleased.” 

“Overall, I was disappointed with the first half performance. They caused us problems and they should have gone a goal up at the break. Our second half performance was better and justified the win for us. We weren’t as good at set pieces today, whether that was the wind, but we did enough to win and to score, so late on feels like a big win for us."

“There were lot of breaks and fouls in the game and there was not a flow to it. We did not put enough decent crosses in, especially in the first-half. It wasn’t good conditions but it was the same for both teams.”

“We wanted to change it as sometimes it’s not your day. I thought Freddie would cause them different problems. I put Vass out wide and it was a game for athletes. Wilsey has a lot of pace and people do not appreciate how quick he is while Josh was really good today, when he came on."

“I thought Freddie was a bright spark for us. His attitude in training has been spot on and he backs himself to score goals. I thought his mobility was the difference for us when he came on. The game suited Freddie and I’m really happy he got the goal for us.”
