Lewis: Things not going for U's
Assistant boss Micky Lewis admits Oxford are not getting the rub of the green after their 3-1 League Two loss at Rotherham.
Sean Rigg gave the visitors a shock lead but, after Rotherham came back strongly and hit the woodwork twice, Michael O'Connor levelled from the penalty spot and then added a second.
Substitute Jason Taylor put the icing on the cake with two minutes to go by grabbing Rotherham's third, but they were also reliant on a late double save from goalkeeper Scott Shearer.
"The last couple of minutes summed it up for us," he said. "We had two really good chances to score, and fair enough, their keeper made two good saves, but they then go on the break and score.
"We made quite a few changes and we have seen signs. We are obviously a bit disappointed even though we were playing one of the best teams in the league and they are expected to be up there at the end if not win it.
"They have a good squad. They have plenty to choose from and they are pretty fit whereas we are still trying to get people back fit. When you lose so many games on the bounce sometimes you have to make changes and if we had had more fit players, we might have made more changes. It was a much better performance, but it is still six defeats on the spin. We have to win the next one."
