A LATE change of plan helped the Millers score a head-turning victory at league leaders Shrewsbury.
Manager Paul Warne and his staff decided on a change of approach on arrival at the ground and it helped pay dividends as Richard Wood’s goal late in the first half separated the sides.
“The conditions weren’t conducive to good football for either team, “ said Warne. “It wasn’t a game for the purist and when we got here we tweaked our tactics a little bit. We decided just to keep turning them.
“Neither team put many passes together but we were a constant threat on the goal and on another day we might have scored more.
“I have no issues with players missing some chances as long as they keep putting themselves in that situation.
“You’ve got to score when you’re on top and going in 1-0 up at half time didn’t flatter us at all.
“It’s a really pleasing day for us.”
