Bristol City boss Keith Millen backs tactical choices

Millen's side have claimed just five points so far this season

Bristol City boss Keith Millen has insisted their 1-0 home defeat by Brighton on Saturday was not down to tactical errors.

City have yet to score at home this season and Millen opted to play Nicky Maynard on his own up front against the Championship leaders.

"I think tactically we got it right," he told BBC Radio Bristol.

"But people have got to be moving to score instead of waiting for things to drop to them."

Millen recognises goal 'pressure'

He added: "I'll study the video, we were wasteful at times. We need to look like we are going to score more goals."

Ashley Barnes' late strike left City third from bottom in the table having won just one game so far this campaign.

And Millen's side have only claimed one point in three games at Ashton Gate.

"It will be a good one to analyse and see how many times we got into dangerous areas without really looking like scoring," he added.

"The disappointing thing is the manner of the goal conceded. The last two games now we've conceded from corners.

"We're organised, people know their jobs and we didn't manage to clear the corner so it was a soft goal to concede.

"We need to score that first goal, certainly at the moment as the game goes on the pressure builds."
