Millwall’s ability to switch it up impresses Gary Rowett in 3-0 win over Rotherham United

Gary Rowett was delighted with Millwall’s ability to switch play in their 3-0 victory against Rotherham United this afternoon.
Tom Bradshaw got the Lions off to a flying start when he converted from Callum Styles free-kick in the fourth minute.
Millwall doubled their lead when Cameron Humphreys turned into his own net in the second half before Bradshaw got the third with a tap in after Viktor Johansson had saved Andreas Voglsammer’s initial effort.
The victory means the South Londoners are now fourth in the Championship table.
Rowett said: “We worked hard in the days in between to try and open up those spaces in between centre-backs and wing-backs.
“We switched play really well, we made some brilliant runs off the ball and it looked a really proactive performance.
“I can’t think of the amount of times that George Honeyman got in behind with a great run or Vogey and Bradders.
“We worked incredibly hard to open space and that made a big difference to us today.
“It’s been a tough one for Rotherham, I’ve followed there last few games and they’ve had some key injuries that have made it very difficult for them to remain as competitive as they’d like to.
“They worked incredibly hard, there were a few moments where there were little warning signs. We played so well in the first half to go 1-0 up but we should’ve had quite a few more than one.
“Then they had a couple of big moments towards the end of the half, [Conor] Washington probably should’ve scored which would have made it a little bit different.
“We spoke at half time about our discipline, concentration levels and doing the right things, we started a little bit sloppily but other than that it was a really good performance.
“To have 26 shots and 10 or 12 of them on target, the disappointing bit is we didn’t score more goals.”
