Wigan defeat - Hugely disappointing - Warne

Last updated : 09 April 2017 By Millersmad

The Millers conceeded with 97 mintues on the clock after a free kick was awarded to Wigan after an altrication between Millers keeper Lewis Price and Wigans Nick Powell.

“I don’t think that anyone has seen anything like it, It is hard for me to comment on but I think that there was only about 40 seconds left on the clock, and although I wanted to win the game I was happy to take an away draw just to stop the rot."

“Pricey kicked the ball, I know that there was some physical contact before he went to kick it. He kicked it and if I am honest my eyes just followed the ball. I was actually appealing for a free-kick at the other end because Jonson Clarke-Harris had taken a hit."

“I’m pretty raw. I don’t want to say things I’m going to regret, Lewis has said something in there, but I’ll have to keep that in the dressing room. I can’t talk about what goes on in there."

“There were some words being said by all of us. That’s all I can say. To concede in the 97th minute is gut-wrenching, to say the least.”

“It was hugely disappointing because again I thought that the lads gave me everything that they had, but we have come up short. I think at worst we deserved a draw.”

“Our away form this season has been disappointing but today I thought that we were set up right, we came here with a confident setup by playing two up, we had a game plan and it was working quite well,” he added.

“Wardy could have scored early on, but then we got the goal which was a good bit of play. I honestly thought that if we could have gone in 1-0 up at half-time, we would have been pretty comfortable.

“We conceded a counter-attack goal and regrettably we have conceded a few of them. We took the lead again. We were a little fortuitous with the shot, with the ‘keeper and I thought that we would go on and score again.

“The ‘keeper made a great save from Carlton’s (Morris) header, and then Wardy had a really good chance and we also had good patterns of play. They broke and got another goal and what happened in the 97th minute, which is a first, was very frustrating.”
