The Terriers drew 0-0 at home to their Championship relegation rivals and were fortunate to do that, with the Millers twice hitting the woodwork and Ben Wiles missing an excellent chance.
All Huddersfield had to cling to was the knowledge that it could have been worse, and at least Sheffield Wednesday, Wycombe Wanderers and Coventry City lost.
“It wasn’t the result we wanted,” said the Spanish coach, who said he did not feel his team lacked confidence. “Before the game wanted to turn the page from Norwich (a 7-0 away defeat on Tuesday) with a very good result and performance and we didn't get either of these two things.
“We can say the point was positive because we didn't compete well enough in the second half to get even that point.
“We were very concentrated on competing but didn't create anything in attack.
“The first half was more equal between the two teams. We wanted to play better than them in the second half but it was the opposite.
“More than luck, they had more chances than we wanted them to. We didn't have the chances we wanted to.
“We try to be the more assertive team and that didn't work well.
“We didn't have the chances we wanted to create and it didn't help us to counter-attack well.
“There was a lot of fight and hard work and mentality but we didn't and a way and there are minutes in our legs.”
