Have your say

Rotherham United boss Neil redfearn says his side need to 'show more resilience' after the Millers let a lead slip in losing to Preston at Deepdale.

Tony Andreu's 35th-minute header had Rotherham in front in a half they dominated but North End showed a resurgence after the break and despite an impressive display by Lee Camp in the Millers goal, the home side claimed all three points.

Former Chesterfield striker Eoin Doyle leveled and then in the third minute of injury time Jonson Clarke-Harris headed into his own goal.

Having been so close to holding out for a point boss Neil Redfearn was left floored.

"It was cruel, I felt we played well first half, we went in front and could have got another one," he said.

"Then they put us on the back foot at the start of the second half. We had to make changes that we perhaps didn't want to make. We are struggling for bodies.

"But we are looking for more resilience. We are talking about seconds not minutes, but we need to be tougher.

"We have to go again and make sure we pick enough points to stay in this division. We have to dust ourselves down and go again."
