One of the first things that happened in September was the Manager, Mark Robins, was presented with Coca Cola League Two Manager of the Month for August - and well deserved it was!
The first game of September was on a very wet day at Chesterfield. With the pitch getting slippier by the minute, it looked to everyone there that it was going to end 0-0. Warrington brought off some good saves but couldn`t stop a shot from Alan Goodall in the fourth minute of time added on to give the Millers their first defeat of the season. A week later, Rochdale came to Don Valley and were two up in the first fifty minutes. Ian Thorpe came on for Rochdale in the sixty-fourth minute and five minutes later lunged at Ian Sharps and was on his way for an early bath. An own goal from Rory McArdle gave the Millers a life line and, with the last kick of the game, Reuben Reid got the equaliser. Fellow strugglers, Luton Town, were the next visitors to Don Valley and a freak or wonder goal from Alex Rhodes got the winner for the Millers that day.
Southampton came to Don Valley next in the Carling Cup. Nick Fenton opened the scoring on twenty minutes for the Millers with Danny Harrison getting a second. The Championship side pulled one back before Drewe Broughton scored his first goal of the season to give the Millers a deserved 3-1 win. Ian Sharps was given the Man of the Match by Vital voters. In a poll on who scored the best goal of the game, Danny Harrison came out well in front with 78% of the votes, who scored his goal from twenty-five yards out, leaving Bialkowski in the Saints goal no chance.
A long journey to Dagenham and Redbridge was the last game of September and a goal from Mark Burchill in the final five minutes made sure the Millers brought a point back with them.
Vital Man of the Match voters couldn`t separate Andy Warrington and Ian Sharps, so both were awarded Men of the Month for September.
Rotherham only lost one game this month, against local rivals, Chesterfield and that to a goal in time added on. And, of course, we beat yet another Championship side in the Carling Cup to progress to the next round.
