Paul Warne proud as Rotherham United earn point at Wycombe Wanderers

Paul Warne was pleased by Rotherham United’s goalless draw at Wycombe Wanderers, considering the schedule his side have faced in recent weeks.

After booking their place in the Papa John’s Trophy final on Wednesday night, the Millers faced the trip south as third-placed MK Dons hosted Wigan Athletic, who are second in the table.

All games involving the top three ended in draws, keeping Rotherham’s gap to third spot at four points.

Rotherham did not threaten too often at Adams Park but top scorer Michael Smith did force Chairboys goalkeeper David Stockdale to tip his header over.

“I thought first half we were good and I thought we created really good chances,” said Warne.

“It’s often the case when you don’t take your chances that you might not get any more and we didn’t really create enough second half.

“But if you’d offered me a point beforehand, would I have taken it, and a clean sheet? Yeah, possibly.

“Would I like us to play better? Obviously, I would but considering on the back of the Wednesday night [at Hartlepool], we got back at one o’clock Thursday morning, I think the lads put a real shift in.
