Rotherham boss Paul Warne praised his side for winning ugly in their 1-0 triumph against Accrington.Carlton Morris bagged the winner with half an hour played to move Rotherham up to sixth in Sky Bet League One.The on-loan Norwich striker rose above the Accrington defence from Ben Wiles’ free-kick and planted his header firmly into the bottom corner before the hosts held onto victory following Chiedozie Ogbene’s dismissal with eight minutes remaining.Warne feels there is more to come from his team.“I think we will play a lot better than that and lose, so I’m not complaining. In the first half we were good and caused them problems,” Warne said.“Carlton took his goal really well. It was a good header. We just needed the second goal really. In the second half they put us under pressure.“It felt a bit edgy, but at the end of the season those three points will mean the same as a 3-0 win.“To go down to 10 men showed a lot of character and I thought the fans got behind the team. They helped the lads out. In a perverted sort of way, it helped us.“It’s nice to win and going up to sixth position is good. I still think there’s a lot to come from the team.“People always tell me it’s a sign of a good team if you win when you’re not at your best. It’s all about winning.“Accrington made it difficult for us. We knew it was going to be tough and if you had offered me 1-0 before the game I would have taken it.”Stanley manager John Coleman said: “We had 14 shots and only one on target. “It wasn’t really a good shot on target, to be honest, just a scramble on the goal-line which gets cleared. Unfortunately that is the reason we are in the position that we are.“We are more than matching teams. Rotherham started strong but we held them at bay. We conceded a poor goal from a set-play.“They have rarely troubled us second half but I think we had 10 shots in the second half and missed the target. Three beat the keeper hands down but were inches wide.“We haven’t scored a goal in five games and that is killing us. We have played better than what our position suggests but that is what is plaguing us at the minute. An inability to hit the target.“I thought the lads battled hard today. There were lots of enforced changes and I thought the lads who came in acquitted themselves really well. “Rotherham are always going to be a strong side here but there was nothing in the game.”
Rotherham moved into the play-off spots thanks to a 1-0 win over Accrington.With most of their top-half rivals without a fixture, the Millers, even with 10 men, took advantage and moved from mid-table into sixth with a hard-earned victory.Carlton Morris’ early effort forced Accrington goalkeeper Dimitar Evtimov into action before Chiedozie Ogbene’s curler was just wide of the far post as Rotherham started the better side.The home side took the lead in the 30th minute with Morris rising above the Accrington defence to power in Ben Wiles’ free-kick.The lively Morris almost doubled Rotherham’s advantage before the break but his effort curled just wide.Accrington started to enjoy more possession in the second half and substitute Sean McConville almost nipped in to head the leveller at the near post.Rotherham’s response saw Wiles fire a stinging effort from the edge of the box, which Evtimov saved.Ogbene was given his marching orders in the 82nd minute for his second yellow card following a dive and the weakened Rotherham had to see out a late onslaught to claim the three points.

Gareth Ainsworth is taking great heart from Wycombe’s performances against Sky Bet League One’s big guns following their 1-0 triumph at Rotherham.Ainsworth’s underdogs moved up to second thanks to Scott Kashket’s fifth-minute winner.The goal came through indecision in Rotherham’s back-line and Kashket nipped in to fire past the out-of-position and retreating goalkeeper Daniel Iversen.Rotherham failed to create any major openings, with manager Paul Warne feeling they were too “one dimensional”.Warne said: “It was very disappointing. For whatever reason, and we have to look at it, we didn’t perform anywhere near our level. The lads felt a few of them under-performed. Our home form is going to have to pick up.“If we are to have a successful season we’re going to have to get back-to-back results. Our performance was a bit predictable. It felt like we were a little bit one dimensional and a few of the lads looked really jaded. Maybe I should have made more changes.“Wycombe played really well. After we go a goal down we get collectively frustrated. I don’t know why we under-performed but I have some thoughts.“At the moment it’s not clicking as well as we would like.“We might have to look at doing something different. I feel sorry for the fans because our away form has been excellent. I apologise for that.“I’m disappointed, as are the players. We just weren’t at our best.”Ainsworth has been encouraged by Wycombe’s performances against Rotherham, Blackpool and Sunderland from whom they have picked up a combined seven points.He said: “To get seven out of nine from those three games is something special. It starts telling me that this is a squad that can achieve. We can go to places and put our stamp on a game.“We don’t have to rely on luck or anything else. I was really proud of the boys.“We wanted to try and exploit the space in behind Rotherham’s big two centre-halves and that paid dividends with the goal.“It was a resolute defensive performance. They are a big, big side and they were pumping balls into the box.“The back five were absolutely immense, as were the six in front of them. I thought they were outstanding. The fans helped to see the result home.“It’s a result we deserved. I don’t think they had a shot on target but they’re obviously going to beat some teams here.“It’s an amazing performance and a great win.”
