No hairdryer from Rotherham boss Neil Redfearn after 3-0 loss to QPR

Rotherham boss Neil Redfearn knows his side did not deserve criticism after their 3-0 defeat to QPR on Saturday.

The Millers lost their first game at New York Stadium since December 5 after they were undone by second-half goals from Junior Hoilett, Matt Phillips and Sebastien Polter.

But that did not tell the true story on a cold South Yorkshire afternoon as the hosts were unable to make a dominant first half and a 20-minute spell of pressure in the second half count.

The Millers should arguably have been out of sight by half-time as Paul Green, Matt Derbyshire, Danny Ward and Aimen Belaid all went close.

It was a defeat that could not have been more different to previous losses against the likes of Ipswich and Huddersfield and one Redfearn described as"weird".

"Sometimes you have just got to hold your hands up. I could come here and gloss over it and say we should never have got beaten 3-0 but the bottom line is we did," Redfearn said in his post-match press conference. 

"I know what it is, it's tiredness. You can give your players the wrong message if you're not careful. 

"I could have gone in there and gone off my trolley and had a go at them. 

"That wouldn't have done them any good in this situation. They need to know that they are on the right lines. 

"We can't be happy with the defending. Obviously there's a reason for that, it's tiredness.

"I feel that this group are together now and we just have to make sure we pick ourselves up after each game and go again. 

"We have to make sure we get enough points to stay in the division this season and we can start addressing it further down the line.

"It was probably one of the weirdest 3-0 defeats I have ever been involved. 

"Had it been 3-0 to us at half-time that would have been about right. The pressure and play we had around the box, but it just shows you the ruthless nature of this division. 

"If you don't get your noses in front or make hay while the sun is shining then you are open to that sort of thing."
