RUFC - Reserves Win

RUFC - Reserves Win

Rotherham United Reserves 4 v Newcastle United Reserves 2

Rotherham beat Newcastle by four goals to two in an entertaining game this evening at Don Valley.

The Millers had the first attack of the game on six minutes when Paul Warne burst down into the box only to be dispossessed by young Greg McDermot (son of Terry), followed two minutes later by Warne getting possession again in the box but his shot goes just wide. Jak Alnwick, in the visitors goal, made a good save from Stephen Brogan while Patrick Nzuzi headed a Micky Cummins effort off the line. So, it was a bit of a surprise on the thirteenth minute when Newcastle took the lead with Aaron Spear's shot at goal hitting the hands of Jamie Annerson and finding its way into the back of the net. The Millers drew level fifteen minutes later when Brogan's cross found the head of Ryan Taylor who put the ball into the net. Just before half-time Micky Cummins had, what looked like a certain goal, well saved by Alnwick before Taylor put a header wide, when it looked easier to place it in the back of the net.

At the start of the second half Jamie Annerson made a good save from Conor Newton as he found himself backpedalling to tip the ball over the crossbar. On the fifty-fifth minute, Brogan put in a low ball for Cummins who got the Millers second of the night and eight minutes later Warne ghosted into the box and smashed home number three from twelve yards out. Brogan then gets in on the act and darted past a number of Newcastle defenders to score from a right-footed curler for number four. The visitors got their second of the night when Wesley Ngo Baheng stooped in low to put the ball into an empty net.
