Shambles...

Shambles...

Alan Knill watched head hung low as his Rotherham side were comprehensively beaten at Neighbours Doncaster today.

Neil Roberts opened the scoring in the sixth minute, firing home his first goal of the season from the edge of the penalty area, before Sean Thornton netted for the second successive game from similar range four minutes later.

The Millers hauled themselves back into the game in the 15th minute, Jonathan Forte drilling a shot into the bottom corner - his fourth goal in three matches.

Rovers restored their two-goal advantage in the 21st minute when Lewis Guy claimed his first league goal since August to keep Rotherham in the relegation zone.

The second half possession wise belonged to the Millers, but possession alone does not win matches and indeed barely threatened the rovers goal.

This setback leaves the Millers with plenty to do to escape the drop and on this performance things look very bleak.

I was more disappointed with the second half than the first. Alright our defence was a shambles in the first half but these things happen and the wibd was against us. Had we come out all guns blazing for the second half and used the wind as well as they did, we would have got something out of the game.We showed no passion or spirit in the second half and never even tested the keeper.
