Neil Warnock was all smiles after watching his Rotherham side extend their unbeaten run to 10 games with a draw against Huddersfield Town, but admitted he's pleased to see his old side doing well in the Championship.

The two sides scored a goal apiece in the first half to share the spoils in Town's final Yorkshire derby of the season.

And that point mathematically guaranteed Championship football in Huddersfield next season, and all but confirmed safety for Rotherham.

Warnock declared: “The lads have been a credit to me. I was pleased tonight because Huddersfield is a team very close to my heart. I had a great time there and it is a credit to where they are now."

Nahki Wells was on target for the 18th time this term to cancel out Greg Halford's opening goal, but although both sides had opportunities in the second half, the defences refused to be breached for a second time.

And Warnock professed himself happy with a point against a Huddersfield side that have become increasingly accomplished on their travels.

“As the game went on, I thought we had chances to win it,” added Warnock.

“They had chances, it was what you would expect from a Yorkshire derby – a good point for both teams.

“If you look at their away results, they have done quite well due to the system they play."

The former Town manager has drastically altered fortunes at the New York Stadium, turning the season around to leave them nine points clear of the drop with three games to be played - and with a superior goal difference.

Rotherham were three points adrift of safety when he began his tenure but are now on course to make club history next Saturday.

Declared Warnock: "I have nothing but praise for [the players]. We have equalled a record tonight, 10 games unbeaten in the Championship going back to Emlyn Hughes' days, that's what sort of record it is and it would be nice for us to beat that record at Wolves."
