Warnock has characters for battle

MANAGER Neil Warnock won't be panicked into bringing in extra reinforcements for Rotherham United's Championship relegation fight.

The Millers have gone seven matches without a win, the last three without scoring, and tackle tomorrow's home date with Brentford six points adrift of fourth bottom MK Dons.

After two weeks in the job, the vastly experienced Warnock has assessed the squad and although he admits it isn't how he would like it, he believes the players have enough about them to stand a chance of getting out of trouble.

And having already brought in the experienced Jerome Thomas, Lloyd Doyley and Paddy Kenny, he won't be making a late dash into the transfer market unless it's worth it.

“The job is not as hard as I expected because the players have really responded,” he told the Advertiser. “I've been in the game a long time and I know when players are not giving it their all. These lads are giving it everything.

“The squad is lopsided, there's a lot of players in certain positions who are all very similar and one or two are coming back from injury.

“We have to persevere with what we have got and I will use the best players for the job. I'm looking to see what's available and might bring a forward in for a few weeks. I know the chairman will back me but there's no point bringing people in who are no better than what we have already."
