RUFC - Harrison 'set-pieces cost us'
Rotherham United stand-in Skipper, Danny Harrison said that the defeat on Saturday to Dagenham and Redbridge was very difficult to take.
Speaking to MillersPlayer, the twenty-nine year old midfielder said, 'I think we had enough chances to win three games. How we haven't gone in two or three up at half-time I don't know and the game probably should have been over and done with then. We didn't start the second half for the first ten minutes and I think that's what's cost us.
'Arguably the performance was better than of late but it means nothing when you've lost the game. We were comfortable for most of it apart from the first five or ten minutes of the second half. I don't think we could have asked for anything more in the first half except for taking a couple of the chances we had but that was only half the job done and you can't rest on your laurels after only forty-five minutes.
'Dagenham is a tough place to come wherever they are in the league and going in at half-time we knew they were always going to come out and throw everything at us, which they did. For that first ten minutes we couldn't handle it and if we had we could have gone on because we had chances in the second half. It's two set-pieces that have cost us today which is something we can work on.
Danny scored the Millers first goal of the game and said, 'It's obviously nice to score but it doesn't come close to not winning when we played like we did.
'We aren't happy at all and it just can't keep on happening. There's a few mistakes that we've got to rectify and do it fast because games are running out. It's so frustrating how we can go from one extreme to the other and you can't really legislate for individual errors because everybody makes them. Sometimes it's just not going for us but we have to do better when defending set-pieces.'
