POST-MATCH | I thought we deserved it - Taylor

Rotherham United boss Matt Taylor was full of praise for his side after he recorded his first win as the manager of his new club with a 2-1 triumph over Huddersfield Town at AESSEAL New York Stadium.

“I thought we deserved it.

“I thought we started the game really well and scored and excellent goal. We have to improve the aspect of some of our set piece moments and we can say that it is well-worked from the opposition, but we can see that danger out better than we did in that moment and hold onto the lead longer than we did in the first half.

“They’ve not really worked the ball through our core, which is the most pleasing aspect of today and Georgie is in the right place at the right time in that second half period.

“As much as he’ll get the credit and the plaudits Tom [Eaves] put in a great effort in taking the eyes and the efforts of the centre halves’ bodies for a large portion of the game and Georgie came on and did what he did.

“It was pretty much a full house and a Yorkshire derby. As always we’ll be judged on our home form in front of our biggest following and hopefully they saw another committed performance with certain moments in terms of our principles which are improving.

“I want the lads to keep trusting themselves and control the game for longer, but second half, barring one save from our goalkeeper and a disallowed goal, I thought that we were quite comfortable.”
