Andy Warrington knows Rotherham have to address their home form if they are to achieve anything this season.
The Millers are currently in the third year at their temporary home of Don Valley in Sheffield and despite settling in well in their first campaign there, results over the last 18 months have been patchy, with players and fans struggling to adapt to playing in an athletics stadium.
Ronnie Moore's side have won only three of their eight League Two games there this term, drawing four and losing one, and they were also held to a goalless draw by non-league York in the FA Cup on Saturday.
"Over the last couple of seasons we have struggled," goalkeeper Warrington said ahead of Tuesday's Johnstone's Paint Trophy clash with Huddersfield.
"Last year you looked at the circumstances surrounding the pitch but you can't use that as an excuse this season. It is difficult to put your finger on why we struggle, but we have to start picking wins up if we want to do anything this season.
"We have drawn far too many games and that cost us last season and it's not really helping us this year. It's important we get to winning ways at Don Valley and that's what we're all striving for."
