Millen's View: Norwich Home (0-3)

Millen's View: Norwich Home (0-3)
Bristol City boss Keith Millen must be feeling the pressure now after his side surrendered to Norwich City and in so doing, slipped to rock bottom in the nPower Championship.

Millen and his side were boo`d off the field after this latest performance in which Simeon Jackson struck twice and Wes Hoolahan buried a penalty. The result means City have gained just one point from their five home games so far this season.

Millen said: 'I'm working as hard as I can and I will continue to do so until someone tells me otherwise.

'Confidence is fragile at the moment, particularly at home, so the first goal today was always going to be important.

'Luck went against us with a ricochet that sent their striker through, but with three centre-backs we shouldn't have let him in behind us.

'I've no complaints about the penalty awarded against us for handball and a third Norwich goal was inexcusable.

'Nobody took responsibility for organising our defence when we pushed forward for a free-kick and their goalkeeper's clearance led to an open-goal chance. You can't legislate for that.

'We now have a two-week break in which to work on the training ground to find the right formula. I believe we have the personnel here to climb the table, but we need to go to Cardiff for our next game in a positive frame of mind.'
