Manager Ian Holloway remained bouyant despite our one nil defeat to Rotherham yesterday, and whilst he was disappointed to see our 12 game unbeaten run come to an end the message was simply to start another one now.

Speaking to the official site following the game, Holloway said that even though we lost nobody should lose sight of the fact it was our first defeat in 13 games, and that shows just how far we have come really from the point he took the job on.

‘We shouldn’t forget how far we’ve come in a short space of time. But I thought a few of our more creative players didn’t look quite as bright as they had done before. There was maybe a bit of tiredness after the game on Tuesday so we’ve got to look at a few things for the game against Southampton.’

Holloway goes on to say that he knew Rotherham would be a tough game for us, and they didn’t disappoint in how they played so whilst there’s positives on the bigger picture and things he can take and learn from, his biggest frustration over the 90 minutes was that we were dominant in possession but only created ‘one shot on target’.

‘Rotherham have come to our ground and made more chances, which is why they’re going home with the points. It was a poor goal to concede from my point of view. We’ve got to make more things happen going forward, unfortunately we couldn’t quite get behind them as much as what we would’ve liked but that’s life.’
