RUFC - Reserves Lose

Rotherham United Reserves 0 Middlesbrough Reserves 3

A strong Rotherham United side lost three-nil to Middlesbrough this afternoon at Parkgate.

The Millers started the brighter and Chris Holroyd's strike from eight yards out was well turned over by Connor Ripley in 'Boro's net. From the resulting corner, a header from Troy Brown was cleared off the line. On six minutes, the visitors first chance fell to Cameron Park who cut in from the left but his shot went wide and a few minutes later Kevin Thompson, who was returning from injury, also saw a shot go wide. Middlesbrough were taking over the game and Tarmo Kink and Park had shots at goal while Lawrence McKay blocked a shot from Ryan Brobbel before a mix-up between Marcus Marshall and Andy Warrington let in Brobbel only for Warrington to fetch him down. Curtis Main stepped up and put the visitors one up from the penalty spot seven minutes before half-time.

Just three minutes into the second half a corner from Kink found Ben Gibson but his shot hit the crossbar and went over. It was all 'Boro and on fifty-three minutes a curling shot from Park left Warrington no chance as it flew into the top corner to double the visitors lead. At the other end a good ball from Luke Foster found Paul Warne whose shot at goal was deflected wide for a corner. Middlesbrough could have gone further ahead on the hour mark when a Kirk corner found Seb Hines but the tall defender headed just over. It as still one-way traffic and Main and Jake Fowler were unlucky not to add to the scoreline. But, the third goal did come on eighty-one minutes, when there seemed to be a mix up between Warrington and Michael Raynes and the ball fell to Brobbel who slotted home from twenty yards out. In the final minutes of the game Liam Royles nearly got a consolation for the home side but his shot went just wide.
