Warne admitted he wasn’t feeling the nerves ahead of the fans’ return to The New York Stadium and wanted his players to enjoy playing in front of the crowd.
“I haven’t been nervous today,” he insisted. “It’s the first proper game in charge when I wasn’t nervous at all.
“The lads trained so well yesterday that I was fully confident that, if nothing else, we would put on a performance.
“Just before the lads left the dressing room, I said: Sometimes your days drag but your season goes really quickly. They should be grateful that they are allowed to play their home games in this stadium in front of a raucous crowd like this. I just wanted them to enjoy every minute.”
