Manager Gary Johnson was pretty adamant that the weather conditions today in the defeat to Leeds United were not the reason we failed to take a point, our failure was due to our own errors again.

Speaking to numerous press following the final whistle, where despite taking the early lead, we still ended up losing to a rather bizarre goal from Stephen Warnock, the gaffer explained that ultimately we cost ourselves the game on the day.

Ishmail Miller’s blazed penalty, Marek Stech’s assist for Ross McCormack’s equaliser, before a goal we’ll never see again this season from Warnock were what cost us over and above the conditions.

‘We’ve got to move onto the next game and not try to drag them down too far and hang on in there. The first half was really in our favour and we really should have gone in 2-0 up. In the second half it was in their favour and unfortunately we made the mistakes they didn’t into the wind.’

As for Stech’s error, Johnson says he’s been a great goalkeeper ‘over the weeks and years’ but by his own standards the two goals he conceded today were errors ultimately, as he’s better than that.

‘We had only just said in the dressing room not to let that missed penalty affect us.’

Johnson also called Millwall a ‘cup final’ now for the club where we really need all three points or at least something to show from it to bring an end to this losing streak, but he also said that Marek had held his hands up and apologised to the team, but sadly that’s how our luck is going at the moment in games.

Have to hope it changes, and quick.
