Rotherham United will not enjoy ‘procession to promotion’, warns manager Paul Warne Yorkshire News

The Millers ended a run of three league games without a win as Ben Wiles and Chiedozie Ogbene found the far corner in the opening 13 minutes to give the hosts a 2-0 lead.

The Imps responded with a goal eight minutes from time when Tom Hopper finished off a fine move by the visitors, but Rotherham held all three points, opening a seven-point gap to third-placed MK Dons.

Victory means Rotherham will be guaranteed promotion if they win six of their remaining eight games, but even that would require MK Dons to finish the season with an unblemished record.

The victory put the Millers back in a strong position, but Warne insists there is still a lot of work to be done.

“It was very nervous. In the first time we were excellent and more like us. We could have gone three or four up and made an easier second half,” he mused.

“I warned the guys at halftime that if they score the next goal and the stadium is quiet and a little bit jumpy, they’re going to get jumpy.

“We had to change our system and the opposition had the ascendancy and it became a basketball game, so it really was all of them.

“I am very satisfied with the three points. It’s not about performances. They feel a little sorry for themselves.

“It’s not going to be a procession to promotion. The boys are jaded and tired and need everyone’s support to get ahead. Fortunately we had enough.”
