DEFENSIVE MISTAKES COST US

7 February 2015

Mings admitted Rotherham's gameplan worked to their advantage as Town failed to convert chances and didn't defend set-pieces well enough

  • Didn't take our chances, says Tyrone
  • Derbyshire and Sammon goals sink Town
  • Time to regroup ahead of Tuesday night now


Tyrone Mings admitted defensive mistakes cost Town, as Rotherham beat the Blues 2-0 at the New York Stadium.

A goal in each half from Matt Derbyshire and former Town loanee Conor Sammon ensured the points went with the Millers, despite Mick McCarthy’s side carving out numerous chances.

“I think Rotherham did to us what we often do to other teams and their game plan worked today, to their credit,” the left-back told the official Club website.

“It was two set-pieces that we conceded from and that has cost us today, not defending like we know we can do.

“We had a go at them, especially in the second-half, but we haven’t taken our chances and conceded two goals from set-pieces which is disappointing from our point of view.

"That shows how tough the Championship is because Rotherham made it very difficult for us. We’ve got to regroup now and try to put things right against Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday night.”
