Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott thought his team showed quality this evening against a strong Leicester City side in the first round of the Carling Cup.
'I thought for the first forty-five minutes to an hour we did alright, ' Scott told MillersPlayer after the four-one defeat, 'We created a lot of chances in the first half and played well. They had possession in some areas but we coped with it pretty well.
'I was disappointed to concede the goal we did but I was pleased at half-time. Then we conceded two poor goals and I think we let the heads drop a little bit.
'It was a bit of a knock but against a Leicester side who have got a lot of talent we showed our quality in the first half and gave them a real wake up call. And, this was a different class of team and a pretty strong bench that they had and they've got some fantastic players who have played at the highest level and, we were obviously disappointed to lose by as many goals as we did but there is no shame in our defeat today.
'We lost Marcus (Marshall) and Lewis (Grabban) at half-time and we struggled to get any fluency after that. But I thought we were excellent in the first half and we should be encouraged because we created a lot of chances. They got a couple of knocks and we weren't going to risk them because, with Plymouth and Crewe coming up we need them available for both those games.
'I've told them that we can learn lessons today and learn from the mistakes we made but our focus has got to be on League Two and playing the way we did for the first forty-five tonight and against Oxford on Saturday. We don't want tonight to be a set back for us, we have to take the positives from it, and there were plenty, and look forward to Saturday,'
