Mick no argument over result as Town concede from two set-pieces

Mick McCarthy said Town paid the price for defensive errors after watching his side go down at the New York Stadium. 

It wasn’t the birthday present the boss wanted as goals from Matt Derbyshire and former Blues’ loanee Conor Sammon  gave Rotherham the points. 

“The game was going nowhere when they scored their first goal and it was real poor marking by us,” said Mick. 

“Then we conceded the second goal when we were having our best spell of the game. We didn’t defend the corner well enough and it was bad marking again. That's not like us.

“There was nothing special about the deliveries. If we defend like that and lose our markers, it’s going to cost you and it did today. 

“We had our chances. Murph had a great one after 15 seconds. Their ‘keeper made a good save and he did that from Chambo later on as well. They headed one off the line as well but that’s credit to them. They’ve done their jobs. 

“Once Rotherham scored their second goal they looked to be winners. They played well so credit to them.”
