Work to do after Grimsby win

Last updated : 25 July 2021 By Millersmad

A goal in the 84th minute from defender MIchael Ihiekwe separated the teams, but the performance didnt please the boss.

“It was a good game. Obviously, I’d like to be talking to you after an unbelievable performance where we were faultless and that isn’t the case but this is what pre-season games are about."

“We knew out of all of the pre-season games, this would be the one that the lads would be the most leggy in. We managed to keep a clean sheet. Hursty has his team fit and organised and they were really up for the game."

“There were no severe injuries apart from Joe Mattock who had a problem prior to the game. I didn’t bring Shane here to be my left back but we didn’t have a lot of choice."

“Some of the lads don’t feel quite at their spritely best yet. We’ve got 13 or 14 senior pros and we’re low on bodies."

Thw goal was Ihiekwe's 3rd in 3 games; “It is always good scoring goals. If you’re a centre forward you want to score every week and if you’re a centre half and you score, then great. There is no disputing that he will be confident when the next set piece comes along.”Warne told
