Rotherham boss disappointed at missed opportunity

Rotherham United interim boss Wayne Carlisle believes his side should have won against Leeds United on Friday night.

The match started quickly with Leeds taking the lead within the first five minutes; Crysencio Summerville netting his seventh league goal of the season. Hakeem Odofin equalized just before halftime as both teams went into the break level.

Two controversial incidents as Jaidon Anthony’s goal was ruled out as the linesman flagged Patrick Bamford for offside. Leeds United were also denied a penalty after Lee Peltier slid in on Dan James in the penalty box but play was waved on.

Rotherham interim coach Wayne Carlisle believes his team should have won on Friday:

“from the scale of the second half I was probably disappointed we didn’t come away with a bit more if I’m being honest.”

Carlisle added that he made a second half change which swung the momentum of the game for Rotherham:

“[I] tweaked something in midfield’ at half-time ”

“There were times (in that first half) that we were passive but I think that was due to the uncertainty in the middle of the pitch. But once we sorted that in the second half you saw a much more Rotherham home performance. Overall we are happy.”

When asked how the experience was taking over his first game in charge of the Millers, Carlisle replied:

“Yes I enjoyed it. I was comfortable going into the game, thought we’d prepped as best we could and during the game I didn’t think ‘I don’t know what’s going on here’. I also had Dan (Green) and Scott (Brown) at the side of me and I thought we handled it pretty well.”
