Should Paul Warne change his approach to Rotherham’s away games?


Paul Warne admits he is in a quandary on how to fix Rotherham’s away-day blues.

The Millers have won just once on their travels since April 2016, beating Portsmouth in September, and they have lost four out of five outings on the road this term.


They were outplayed at Blackburn and Fleetwood, though were in the game at Peterborough and Bradford, but undone by defensive errors.

Generally, the Millers have set up in the same fashion as they do at home, but without the rewards as they have scored just two goals in their five games.

Still, Warne is contemplating diluting his attacking intent, but does not want to compromise his footballing ethos.

“It’s the million dollar question. Apart from Blackburn where in the 1st half we were really poor, I thought all the other performances were good.

“I don’t think we are that far away away from home. Maybe I need to knock down my ‘gung-honess’, possibly that’s my fault.


“I might tweak the way we play in the middle of the park.

“It’s a difficult one, I am pretty happy with the way we are playing. It’s a difficult one, do I go a little bit more defensive and then have no power going forward and then we are just ┬áhanging on for 0-0s and that’s not really how I want to play. That’s not how I see football.

“We need to address our away form, we will tweak how we prepare for the games like our travel times and see if that gets a response from the lads.

“But the performances on the whole have been good.”
