Miller told City's website: "We had eight experienced first team players out, and in the first half we were excellent. Our passing and movement were of the highest order, and we should have had a couple more.
"The game got a bit stretched as it wore on, and probably our best player in the second half was our goalkeeper. Andreas was excellent, he made four or five top-class saves.
"What you ask of senior professionals in the reserves is a good attitude, and to be fair to them they all gave their best.
"The management staff were all watching, so I just told them to make an impression, which they certainly did."
