RUFC - Review of the Season

RUFC - Review of the Season

Another away trip, this time to the Prostar Stadium at Shrewsbury, and the Millers came back empty handed. The game was an even game until the 58th minute when Drewe Broughton received his second yellow card from referee Horwood. Joining him for an early bath ten minutes later was on loan 'keeper David Stockdale who gave away a penalty and received a red card. From the penalty, Grant Holt sent Stephen Cann the wrong way to score the only goal of the game.

The following Saturday, Aldershot should have been back at Don Valley but a waterlogged pitch put paid to that so the next game was against Darlington in the Johnstone`s Paint Trophy. Once again the game went to a penalty shoot-out after the visitors took the lead on 35 minutes and Nick Fenton kept the Millers in the game with a header that went in off the underside of the cross bar fifteen minutes from time. The Millers won the game 4-2 with Mark Burchill, Danny Harrison, Mark Hudson and Micky Cummins scoring from the spot and Stephen Cann saving two penalties from Darlington.

The Millers then travelled to play Accrington Stanley, where they got their first win in two months. In the first few minutes, Mark Burchill got up, after being fouled in the penalty area, and scored from the resulting penalty, followed five minutes later by his, and the Millers, second of the day and could have had his hat-trick not long after but for a fine save from Dunbavin. Andy Proctor pulled one back before half-time for Stanley but all three points were coming back to Rotherham when Drewe Broughton scored in the last two minutes to make it 3-1.

The Christmas period of games began with Port Vale coming to Don Valley and a 1-0 win for the Millers. Before half an hour of the game had gone, Marc Joseph, for no reason that could be seen, brought down Perry and the referee had no option but to show the defender a red card. Despite having an extra man for more than an hour, Vale couldn`t score and it was Drewe Broughton who came on as a sub, who scored the only goal of the game. Two days later, the Millers went to Notts County and straight away took the game to the home side. The game was only five minutes old when Reuben Reid got the first goal of the game. Just after half-time, Drewe Broughton got the second and five minutes later the game was over when Micky Cummins scored the third.

A much better month for the Millers than last month and Vital voters had a hard job choosing a Man of the Month. Once again there were Men of the Month with Stephen Cann and Jamie Green getting the award. Both were joint men of the match against Shrewsbury, along with Ryan Taylor while 'keeper Cann was Man of the Match in the Johnstone`s Paint Trophy game against Darlington and Green for the final game of 2008.
