Leam Richardson admits Millers have ‘awful habit’ after QPR defeat

Leam Richardson, the manager of Rotherham United, believed that his team’s inability to maintain their advantage against Queens Park Rangers was partly due to fatigue.

The Millers have now dropped six straight games and have gone ten games without a victory after being defeated 4-3 against Ipswich Town in midweek. When Paul Smyth and Chris Willock scored goals for the home team, Rotherham’s lead was reversed against QPR.


“We’ve got an awful habit of taking games to people,” Richardson remarked, “going ahead and then losing by one goal after not carrying through a performance.”

With our small squad, it appeared like we were a touch short on legs after traveling to Ipswich on Tuesday night and returning here yesterday.

“Our guys gave it their all on Tuesday night, and that’s been very consistent throughout the games I’ve been here. We just need to adjust the dial a little bit to turn the draws into victories and the losses into draws.


“I entered a setting that I was familiar with, and I’ve been working to establish positive behaviors. To improve as a football team, it is crucial that we put in a lot of effort, deal with some issues, and move on.
