Millers Swept Away

Stockport

Attendance: 4,004

Referee:

Rotherham's automatic promotion ambitions took a dip tonight when Stockport came and ruled the roost at Millmoor.

The Hatters nineteen year old midfielder, Tommy Rowe, grabbed a hat-trick in a wonderful performance tonight to leave the Millers stunned. Rowe got his first on just nine minutes when he chested home a Liam Dickinson cross and could have had two a moment later but his free header went wide of the target. Rotherham came back into the game and Danny Harrison went close when on loan 'keeper, Conrad Logan, punched the ball just over the bar. Graham Coughlan had a shot cleared off the line and Logan saved again from Harrison. The equaliser finally came ten minutes before half time when a Chris O'Grady flick found Mark Hudson who's shot went past Logan. O'Grady was denied a goal just before half time when Jim McNulty headed his shot off the line.

The Millers came out the better side in the second half and after a game of pinball in the penalty area a Derek Holmes effort was blocked by Ashley Williams on the line, hit Logan and went over the top into the Tivoli. A minute later, Rowe got his second of the night, when Liam Dickinson went past Paul Hurst, found Rowe who headed home past Warrington. Five minutes later the Millers saw themselves go three down when Anthony Pilkington slotted the ball in from a Tommy Rowe pass. And Rowe himself claimed his hat-trick on the sixty-third minute when he volleyed in from the centre of the penalty area. The home team looked stunned and didn't really know where to turn and Dickinson seemed to turn the Millers midfield on their heads. Even after having a clear-cut penalty turned down when Jason Taylor handled in the box the home side never really looked like getting another goal.

A disappointing display from the Millers tonight as another chance to pull up on the leaders went begging. I feel a result of some sort at Wycombe is a necessity this weekend.

I remember when you lot smashed us 5-1 a few years ago, one of the most depressing away trips I've ever taken! Hopefully you can get back on track and climb your way back up the leagues. Good luck to you!

Thanks uroyals. But, I honestly think if we'd got a penalty today we would have missed. Just one of those games, I guess
