Millen's View: Leeds away 3-1

Millen's View: Leeds away 3-1
Thoughts of Bristol City manager Keith Millen after losing 3-1 at Elland Road at the hands of Leeds United.

Millen pointed to an injury to Louis Carey and Leeds' changes as being the difference between the two sides.

Captain Carey went off injured on 65 minutes and his replacement Nicky Hunt endured another torrid day at the office thereafter, while Leeds sub Luciano Becchio helped himself to a hat-trick after coming on for the final half hour.

"Coming to Elland Road is tough. In the first half Leeds had the better chances and probably had more pressure on our goal but we had opportunities on the counter-attack," Millen said.

"We were happy at half-time and early in the second half we were solid, so I couldn't see Leeds scoring. Then the injury to Louis Carey and the Leeds substitutions had a massive bearing on the game.

"They scored and we showed good spirit to equalise and it could have gone either way but we struggled to deal with Becchio down the middle and Lloyd Sam on the left wing. I was disappointed with our defending in the last 20 to 25 minutes because that has not been us in recent games. We were wide open. We had dealt quite well with their front play but Becchio came on and he is a strong lad who puts himself about.

"They were poor goals from our point of view but hopefully we will learn our lessons.


"Regarding Louis Carey, hopefully there is nothing broken, though we will assess him tomorrow. The doctor has had a look at the ankle and thinks it may be deep bruising. I haven't seen the tackle (from Jonny Howson) so I will wait to see it before passing judgement, but Louis took a nasty whack. For him to come off you know it is a serious injury."
