Head Coach Leam Richardson hopes his Millers side can draw confidence on their display for the first hour at the King Power Stadium but admitted his side were undone by some sloppy defending against the Premier-League destined outfit in the final 30 minutes.
The Millers were proving tough opposition for the high-flying hosts, but once Rotherham’s resistance was broken, the Foxes ran away with the game, by adding two further goals.
"It was very honest [performance].
"I think for an hour or 65 minutes we were good value.
"We were hoping to take that into the latter stages and hopefully get a few bodies forward and possibly counter on them, but you've got to respect them and congratulate Leicester. They're full of quality and they're up there for a reason.
"We are stretched for bodies at the minute as we know. Hopefully we can get some reinforcements sooner rather than later, but today's assessment is that the lads dug deep and gave a good account of themselves.
"You never get a 'well done' for a half-time result, you have to look at how we can be better and how we can improve and make it a 96-minute performance.
"Again though, I thought the lads did well first-half and stuck to the game plan.
"I've only had a few days on the training ground with them because of the weather and only being in the door a few days, but I think the work that they've done they've carried out extremely well.
"I think the disappointing thing is the individual errors that we can avoid but that's your habits and the emotional attachment to the game."
