IAN Holloway took responsibility for Millwall's surprise defeat to Rotherham by admitting that he got his team selection wrong.
The Lions' 12-game unbeaten run was ended by Ben Pringle's winner in the second half and Holloway said that his side looked tired after their midweek trip to Sheffield Wednesday.
Holloway made two changes to his starting XI for the visit of the Millers – including Ricardo Fuller and Josh Wright in his line up – but conceded he should have made more alterations.
He said: "We didn't function like we have been and in hindsight I felt I should've made more changes to the team having looked at the game.
"My attackers looked a bit tired and not quite as effective as they have been, to be honest.
"When we needed some legs to sprint in behind as our moves were building, we didn't have that.
"We've created one shot on target out of 60 percent possession which hasn't been like us.
"We got 16 crosses into the box. Fuller got on the end of a couple but he missed the target.
"It's down to the strength in depth of the squad. Could I have made a few more changes after Tuesday? Would it have affected things any more?
"I wanted to reward that team because we were on such a good roll and there was a great euphoria after our equaliser the other evening.
"Maybe I should have made three or four more changes for this game. You live and die by decisions and maybe I got that one wrong.
"One or two of them didn't feel like they had the same energy – they didn't mean to feel that way – but that is just the way it went."
Pringle was totally unmarked at the far post when he turned home Paul Taylor's centre.
"That should have been 0-0 – but they have created three chances on target and scored one of them," Holloway added.
"I knew how tough this game would be because my scout told me that they didn't deserve to lose to Watford the other day.
"Rotherham have got a great system and they're used to winning. We were used to winning but they've stopped that.
"We didn't defend the cross well enough. Sometimes in life you've got to hold your hands up because that's not as good as we've been – it wasn't that bad either.
"We could still be out there now and we might not have scored. We've got to start another unbeaten run now."
