Paul Warne to make further assessment on his Rotherham squad against Chesterfield

Paul Warne  will use tomorrow’s friendly at Chesterfield to further examine whether he might need some more additions to his squad.

The Millers have had a promising pre-season so far, but lost for the first time when coming up against sterner opposition – a 2-1 defeat to Sheffield United on Friday.


Warne, who was encouraged by the performance against the Blades, says he is happy with the squad and his seven signings, but will use the two remaining friendlies against league opposition – starting at the Proact Stadium on Tuesday – to see which areas might still need strengthening.

And until Warne sees anything to change his mind, there will not be any new faces coming in.

“There are still a couple of things I am not sure on,” he said. “We’ve got a good, healthy squad who all want to do well for the club.

“If something comes up over the next few games that makes me think I am missing something, or something comes up that I can afford, then that is different. But I am not actively looking.

“You can strengthen the whole team, but, realistically, the squad I have got I am happy with. We have got lots of options in all positions.

“In midfield, I did go looking for a goalscoring midfielder, but it didn’t come off, and there isn’t anyone out there who I think will improve us in that position.”
