Rotherham United boss Matt Taylor praised his side for a number of 'moments of quality' in their narrow 2-1 loss to Leicester City on Saturday, as the Millers were narrowly edged out by a side looking for an immediate return to the Premier League.
The hosts were anything but outclassed in the contest with the Foxes, playing some excellent football which they thought had them in front from Jordan Hugill, whose goal would eventually be chalked off by the officials.
Speaking following the match, Taylor said:
"It was a hell of a performance but we ran out of legs and steam in the last 15/20 minutes of the game.
"We worked so hard to get back into the game and we felt we were unlucky to be behind and we showed moments of quality throughout against a top, top team.
"We got a little bit weaker towards the end which has been a pattern so far this season - they probably got a little bit stronger.
"We didn't have enough in our legs or bodies to get back in the game.
"From a manager's point of view we defended the first breakaway and we got chance to regroup and we thought we should have defended it better than we did.
"We didn't quite sense or smell the danger after a good moment of attacking play from the abundance of individuals that Leicester have got.
"It was such a big learning curve for some of those players because they've run their absolute socks off to stay in the game in certain moments and then we've given them a cheap 'in' to get ahead."
