Rotherham boss Paul Warne to switch dugouts against Bolton

Rotherham boss Paul Warne has come up with a curious way of boosting his side’s home performances ahead of Wanderers’ visit on Saturday.

Looking for a first win of the season at the New York Stadium, the Millers have announced they will swap home and away dugouts in an effort to have more influence in the second half of the game.

Rotherham conceded late goals in recent meetings with Tranmere and Sheffield Wednesday and Warne says his coaching staff have unanimously agreed that a change in position can benefit results.

The shift would see Warne closer to the near-side referee's assistant in the second half.

“You can be in either dugout, but there are a few reasons for the change,” he said.

“One is that we haven't really done well at home this season and we're all a little bit superstitious on certain things. As a result of that, we change certain things and this is one thing we can change.

“I know a few clubs have done it over recent years and different managers have tried different things. I know Sheffield United did it - I'm not saying we're going to get to the Premier League, but you never know, you can dream.

“It will be a bit fresh for us as staff as well and we're going to go with it. If we win then we'll stay there and if we lose we could be moving back up the hill. There's no more drama than that really.

“It might help, it might not. We might then be worse going that way [towards the home fans]. I spoke to the staff for their opinions and they feel that it might help us.

“If it does and it helps us to win and it is a better working environment then great.”
