MILLERS boss Andy Scott blasted his side after Saturday's 4-0 home shocker against Southend.
"It was totally unacceptable from start to finish," he said.
"Southend were better than us in every department and regrettably, this is one of the first times, one of my teams were outfought and outworked.
"I'm very disappointed and upset about it and the players are well aware of that fact."
The Shrimpers eased to victory with strikes from Gilbert (10), Timlin (47, 60) and Harris (64).
