We looked tired, says Redfearn

MILLERS boss Neil Redfearn says last night's match at Fulham may have been a game too far for his players.

Without a win in nine matches, the home side raised their game for new manager Slavisa Jokanovic and ran out 4-1 victors.

The result thwarted Rotherham's chances of a third straight win and it looks likely that Redfearn will refresh his line-up for Saturday's trip to Preston.

“We have a great set of lads and they work hard for one another but basically we have had the same team, by and large, for the last four or five games and maybe this was a game too far," he said.

"It was frustrating and I do not think it was a 4-1 game but we looked tired and a little leggy at times.

"When we get a lot of games in a short space of time, it tells, but credit to Fulham, they came onto us and took their chances."

Cauley Woodrow scored twice in the first half either side of a Farrend Rawson goal before Alexander Kacaniklic and Ross McCormack, with his 15th of the season, completed the scoring.

Despite the defeat, Rotherham remain just above the Championship drop zone on goals difference.
