As a contrast to last month of only four games being played, the Millers had Saturday/Tuesday games throughout the month of March. The first game, against Brentford at Don Valley, was a stalemate, but meant the Millers extended their unbeaten run to five games in a row.
Chester City away came next, and the Millers went, surprisingly, one down to a goal from Kevin Ellison. But the game changed when the visitors were given a penalty after Kevin Roberts handled in the box. Reuben Reid put the ball away and Micky Cummins and Drewe Broughton made it 3-1 before half-time. The Millers were in charge of the game now and continued to surge forward at every opportunity so it was no surprise when Reid got another on fifty minutes and completed his well deserved hat-trick twenty minutes later. And, it could have been worse for Chester, if Nick Fenton, Mark Hudson and Jamie Clarke hadn`t missed chances in the last ten minutes.
Next up was a trip to Spotland to take on Rochdale. After a poor and goalless first half, the Millers turned on the style with Reuben Reid and Ryan Taylor scoring. Rochdale pulled a goal back fifteen minutes from time but the Millers should have made it three when Taylor was fouled in the area but Reid hit the resulting penalty against the crossbar, and although he followed up and put the ball in the net, the referee disallowed it for a push.
Four games at Don Valley followed with Aldershot making their second visit to Sheffield and once again winning. This was followed by pay back time when Chesterfield came to town and the Millers trounced their local rivals 3-0, with two goals from Reuben Reid and one from skipper Pablo Mills. The Spirites Drewe Talbot got his second yellow card, leading to an early bath, with ten minutes to go for a nasty challenge on Dale Tonge. The re-arranged, re-arranged, game against Alan Knill`s Bury was next and ended in one-all draw. Reuben Reid put a penalty away in the eighty-third minute only for Efe Sodje to snatch an equaliser in time added on at the end of the game. A determined Accrington Stanley were next and the game ended 0-0.
The final game of a long month was on a Tuesday night at Luton and nearly six thousand spectators witnessed a thrilling 4-2 Millers win. Reuben Reid and Drewe Broughton put the Millers two up before Martin got one back for the Hatters, who were fighting for their football league survival, before half-time. Asa Hall sent the Hatters fans wild when he equalised on seventy minutes only for a stunning header from Danny Harrison put the Millers in front again and Mark Hudson made sure three minutes from time with the visitors fourth.
With all these games being played the Vital Players` for March were Andy Warrington, Reuben Reid and Nick Fenton.
The Football League awarded Reuben Reid the League 2 Powerade Player of the Month Award for March after scoring eight goals in eight games
