Millers boss Matt Taylor conceded that his side got what their performance deserved as they were beaten 4-2 by Hull City in the Sky Bet Championship.
After a colossal effort at Stoke City in midweek - in a game which saw the Millers record maximum points - the Millers manager admitted that his side were unable to take control of the fixture at AESSEAL New York Stadium on Saturday...
“They were impressive, we weren’t. We weren’t there today. We were a yard short all over the pitch. We ended up chasing the opposition team in the first half.
“The same patterns occurred in that second half. We lacked control at any stage in the game. When we couldn’t cover the ground out of possession, it meant that in possession we went ‘forced’. It was uncharacteristic from us all over the pitch.
“Some aspects you expect from the effort and performance they put in on Tuesday. That’s not an excuse.
“Tuesday took so much out of them. We tried to freshen it up before the game and tried to freshen it up at half time and as the game went on.
“We give the opposition full credit but we weren’t good enough today.
“They [Dan Balaser and Georgie Kelly] were a couple of the standouts today. Dan a constant quality and we need more of that and Georgie will always give us something. He’s got another goal and he’s probably going to get a run of games and that’s probably coming pretty soon.
“He adds a certain endeavour. His game isn’t perfect, but if there’s something that I can count on at certain times in the game, he has something that I can rely on and that’s the same with Dan.
“I’m constantly learning about the group. I learn about them when they win away at Stoke and take all the plaudits and I learn about them today."
“I am constantly assessing what is needed and we will have to freshen it up again on Tuesday.”
