Stewart Downing told of a frustrated but not deflated dressing room after Boro's goalless draw against Rotherham.
Chances were at a premium against well-drilled Millers side, but the Boro winger admitted that he and his teammates want more from games such as this one.
"We knew it would be a difficult game, they're a difficult team to play against and break down," he said.
"They've been unlucky at times this season, I don't think their record reflects how they've played.
"I think we've just got to be more clinical when we get those chances, with a bit more quality.
"Maybe we were a bit unlucky as well, little things didn't fall for us.
"But it's disappointing because it's a home game and we expect to get three points."
