Robins livid after loss

Attendance: 3,683

Referee:

An unstoppable left foot shot was the only bright spot in a boring game at Millmoor today which saw the Millers lose their second game in a week.

The Millers seemed to be stumped when it came to idea's and the only real shot they had at goal was when Ian Sharps header was saved by Kenny Arthur in time added on at the end of the match. Saying that, neither team had many shots at goal and the visitors hardly crossed the half-way line in the first half with the only shot towards goal coming from Millers striker Ryan Taylor but it was a weak shot that troubled no one.

The second half didn't fare much better with long high balls being played in that got caught up in the swirling winds. Accrington's goal came after the Millers had been pressing for a goal of their own when Ian Craney collected the ball on twenty five yards and let fly into the back of the net. The only time the visitors looked like conceding was when Mark Roberts headed back to his own 'keeper and the ball seemed to be heading into his own net before Arthur scrambled the ball away for a corner.

At the final whistle the Millers were booed off and in his post match interview Mark Robins said he was livid and embarrased with today's performance.

Star Player

JOE WIDDOWSON - making his debut for the Millers today he was the only one to come out with any credibility
