Tom Barkhuizen gave Preston a 39th-minute lead but an improved second-half performance from the visitors saw Michael Smith equalise on 55 minutes, the game ultimately ended 1-1.

The sides sit on the same number of Championship points, 14, with PNE 20th and Rotherham a place below them.

"I was disappointed with the first half,” said Warne.

“I thought we took too many chances in the middle of the pitch which I told them not to, and we weren't forceful enough and quick enough.

"I asked them to play in a different way in the second half and they definitely did that - if nothing else this group has got unbelievable character.

"After we rode the initial storm, I thought we were really in the game and were the side most likely to win."
