Last updated : 03 September 2017 By Millersmad

The Millers recorded thier first win on the road since April 2016 this afternoon with a 1-0 win over former boss Kenny Jackett's Portsmouth,

Over 400 fan's travelled down to the south coast in hope rather than expectation.

SPeaking after the game, Warne said; "It obviously means a lot, I think our performances this season have been good, and we probably haven't had the lucky bounce of the ball now and again, but today away from home, we set-up a little bit different."

"I thought that we were hard to break down and we created a lot of half-chances, enough to win the game. I am really pleased, a lot of fans came today which was impressive, especially as it was on TV, and they kept with us. It was a nice feeling for everyone."

"It is always nice to win football matches, but away from home is even better. I said to the lads before the game that a win would push us up the league straight away, with two home games coming. I thought that the lads performed really well, there were a lot of changes today but overall we deserved to win."

"It isn't enjoyable when you are losing, and I didn't want the lads to lose faith in what we are trying to do, I think we did everything right, we have prepared the lads perfect for every game, and I have had no regrets. Unfortunately until today we haven't had the results. It is nice to win, away from home and on telly, it was a real boost and I am really pleased."

"I said before the game to the players that the team that go out epitomise me. I am not a man about money and cars, and all that. I do care what people think about me, I want my players to play like they are representing me. I thought that today that the did that. I thought they gave it their all, and joked with them after that's why we ran up hills in Austria. The character and the fitness. They put their bodies in the way and we had some game sense."
