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.”
