What the Daily Mirror saidLions stalwart Liam Trotter says his Championship high-fliers 'gifted' all three goals to his old club.
But the home side made it three wins on the spin. The on-loan pair of DJ Campbell and Daryl Murphy did the damage.
Campbell, on loan from QPR, grabbed two including a penalty and Murphy, on loan from Celtic, the other.
Trotter, who has been attracting the interest of Premier League pair Everton and West Ham this season, added: "We've had a great run. But now it's come to an end. We'll put the hard work in training to start another run."
