Boss Matt Taylor was once again left empty-handed - despite an excellent showing from hims side - as Rotherham United were cruelly-defeated 2-1 by high-flying Norwich City at AESSEAL New York Stadium on Saturday.
The Millers ended with nothing to reward their incredible effort against another side gunning for promotion to the top flight, when Aaron Ramsey's goal - which followed Ollie Rathbone's equaliser - proved to be the winner after the visitors had taken the lead through Kenny McLean.
Speaking after the match, boss Taylor said...
“I'll be honest, it's difficult to put into words. It’s two performances on the bounce and we’ve had so many positives to take but no points to take from it.
“We were where we needed to be today. We were restarted with our press, we were quick to the ball, we moved the ball pretty freely, worked so hard to get back in the game and then 20 seconds later, the ball is in the back of our net.
“When Ollie Rathbone got the equaliser it was well-deserved.
“We were where we needed to be in terms of our positional play, in terms of our structure, in terms of the way we shifted the energy around the pitch.
“But critical moments are absolutely huge and usually you get back in the game, you climb the mountain to do that and don't give yourself another mountain to climb in relation to that.
“That was one of the few moments our middle of the picture was exposed, they had a shot on goal, it was slightly deflected and then it's a goalmouth scramble which we didn't see out.”
