We were off the pace - Taylor

"We were off the pace in the first half, which can happen. A few of the players were carrying niggles and a big effort against Burnley last Tuesday night may have taken a toll. Bristol's front players really impressed me and caused a lot of problems. They were better than us and the best thing that could be said is that we got to half-time still in the game. It was clear we had to change things and affect the match from the bench with some fresh legs and minds.

"The second half was much better. We played on the front foot and tried to take the game to the opposition. As the game progressed, I thought it might be our day to go and claim a winner. It was a cruel body blow when they scored so late. But that's football and we have to bounce back quickly."
