POST-MATCH | We were lacking in execution tonight - Taylor

Millers boss Matt Taylor was keen to stress the importance of being able execute chances, a quality which he feels the side lacks at the moment as they were beaten by Huddersfield Town at The John Smith's Arena thanks to goals either side of half time from Duane Holmes and Jordan Rhodes respectively.

“Poor execution at times. We actually started the game quite well, we were well structured but gave away a really poor first goal, which I’ve said quite a lot recently.

“Our use of the ball was really poor. We failed to create up until that second half period. The belief wasn’t there and the confidence was a little bit low at times. In terms of what chance we’ve given ourselves, goals are a reflection of that and it put us  on the back foot.

“The first goal is one we’ve discussed and talked about. It was a giveaway. The second goal is a one-two. I won’t single players out because some are at a low mentally as well as physically.
 
“We got the ball into some quite good places, that’s just [lacking] execution. Once we started getting the ball in the box, we’ve got to work the goalkeeper more.

“We were lacklustre at times but that was the belief that was left out there.”
