Rotherham Reserves v Lincoln Reserves Report

Rotherham United 1 v Lincoln City 2

A strong Rotherham United Reserve side lost to a youthful Lincoln side this afternoon at Don Valley Stadium.

The Imps were the stronger side in the first half and took the lead in the tenth minute when Shane Clark recieved the ball from Andrew Hutchinson and rolled it into the back of the net. The visitors doubled their lead five minutes later when Nathan Adams sidefooted the ball past Jamie Annerson. Paul Musslewhite had to palm the ball away from an Andy Nicholas header a few minutes later and a clever one-two between Stephen Brogan and Paul Warne put the young defender through on goal but his shot clipped the outside of the post.

The second half saw the home side pick up the pace and a lob by Tom Pope was easily saved by Musslewhite while Mickey Cummins and Andy Liddell both had long distance shots that came to nothing. Craig Gladwin, on for Pope on the hour mark, had two shots, one that he blazed way over the bar and the other that Musslewhite saved. Eventually, the Millers did manage to beat the Imps defence when a Warne cross found Cummins and he headed home for a consolation goal.
