Paul Warne is adamant his preparation for Rotherham’s away games is correct, but could be tempted to change up his side’s pre-match routine.
The Millers have not won away from home in the Championship in 30 games and have not looked like doing so this term, losing five from five.
The performances have been decent – bar the opening-day humbling at Brentford – but Warne’s men have not been able to get over the line.
Warne admits changing things up before the match could be an option, citing an example of when John Sheridan did just that when at Oldham.
“There has been nothing wrong with our away form apart from not getting a point,” he said.
“Our performances have been good, we prepare the team the same way.
“I could throw a curveball in and change the pre-match.
“I remember John Sheridan once took us to a theme park in Brighton on the pier. We went on a rollercoaster before the end of the season and won. I’m not sure there is one of them in Birmingham!
“Apart from going really curveball I think we prepare the lads as best we can. If that Forest game had been a home game we would have played exactly the same way.”
Warne’s men have competed well and the boss is desperate for his side to cure their away-day blues.
“I wish I had the answer, if I did I probably wouldn’t be manager here,” he added.
“All teams struggle with away form but it is difficult for us, in fairness all home games are difficult for us no it is no surprise we struggle points-wise away from home.”
