Boro boss Aitor Karanka: 'Rotherham decided to win'

Middlesbrough boss Aitor Karanka warned that his side's trip to Rotherham could be their most difficult test left and he was proved right.

After dominating the first half and missing a rack of chances to take the lead, Boro were found wanting against a much improved Millers side after the break and were made to pay for their wastefulness when Lee Frecklington struck an 88th-minute winner.

Karanka knew his side should have been out of sight by then but paid tribute to the Millers' endeavour.

“They decided to win, they were fighting for every ball as if it would be the last ball for them. They are fighting to stay in the Championship,” he said.

“We didn't play with the same desire, we didn't score and we didn't win the game.
"We should have won by 4-0 or 5-0 and we have lost three points.

"We should have scored one or two at least and had we scored the game would have been completely different. 

"But we didn't score and we lost the game because we didn't play in the second half the way we needed to play. 

"We are second in the table, we have a really good squad so I am not concerned.”
