We lacked a bit of intensity - Warne

Warney spoke to themillers.co.uk after the game, in which the Millers dropped to second place in the League 1 table.

“We just didn’t seem to have any guile to create something different; When we did put crosses in we did make the keeper make saves and I thought Smudge had scored with a header that would have got back to 2-2."

“I just thought that we played too ‘straight line’ and we didn’t have any guile really today. Whether that was because we were missing players I don’t know."

 “I just didn’t think in the first half, in the first 20 minutes, that we pressed with enough intensity. I was quite happy to get in at half time at 2-1 and I expected the team to go out and perform better in the second half. It just wasn’t a good football game."

“They kept turning us all the time and we found it hard and in fairness we found it hard to deal with their pace up front and they kept us pegged back quite a lot. We had a few that were off par today which was disappointing and we weren’t at our glorious best today"

“We explained to the lads that when we’re top of the league, teams are always going to raise their game against us and we have to be better that. I thought when they asked us a lot of questions second half we just didn’t have the answers.”

“We’ve had a few walking wounded this week. Vass we knew earlier in the week was going to struggle. He should be okay for Tuesday which is good news.

“Crooksy’s personal issue we found out about at 11am this morning in the team hotel. So he jumped in a taxi and went home and our thoughts are with him."

“We still had a good enough team to win a football match and that is what’s disappointing and I think we could have done if we’d played at our best, but today we didn’t.”
