Warne - It's another win to where we want to be

Although the scoreline was impressive, Warne said; “I think we looked good at times, but not so great at times, I didn’t think we were as comfortable or played as fluently as we have in recent weeks. I’m really pleased with the win and we’ve got to keep picking up points any way we can."

“I thought Oxford were really good opposition tonight and they had a lot of the ball as well. They caused us problems and I felt we needed that two-goal advantage.

“I was really pleased with how we started the game then we scored. I wasn’t enjoying some of the decisions the lads were making but we rectified that at half time. They started the second half a lot better and played the way I want them to play. We created enough chances to win the game comfortably but you’ve got to take them. It’s another win to take us closer to where we’re trying to get to.”

“It was end-to-end football, I said to the lads before the game that these next three games are against teams we haven’t beaten yet. There were lots of balls flying across the six-yard box."

“Our team are an honest bunch, Maybe to go 1-0 up so early, we maybe went away from putting crosses in the box and playing forward. I don’t know if it was complacency, it possibly is. Maybe the weekend took the wind out of a few. We looked a bit jaded tonight."

“The lads have given their all and there were some amazing performances I was really proud of. It was just nice to get another win tonight."

“I wasn’t really that keen on making changes unnecessarily. Joe Mattock tightened up a little bit and he wasn’t one of the ones who was jaded. It was a shame to use up one of our attacking subs. I wanted to put Matty Palmer in the game and Ryan Williams was excellent at the weekend and I didn’t get to put him on.”

The Millers make the trip to league leaders Shrewsbury this Saturday, managed by former Millers Paul Hurst.

“They’re all big games now, They’re knocking off fast now. We’ll dust them down and get them up for a cup final at the weekend."
