Referee:

A plea from the Administrator to get bums on seats seemed to have fallen on deaf ears this afternoon after an injury time winner from Alan Connell gave Brentford all three points at a quiet Millmoor.

With Tom Cahill making his full debut today for the Millers it was the home team who started the brighter with an Ian Ross cross being cut out by the Bees 'keeper, Simon Brown, another shot that looked goalbound until it hit his own team mate Cahill which sent it wide and a Derek Holmes header blocked on the line. Millers 'keeper, Andy Warrington, then came into his own and saved headers from Alan Bennett and Nathan Elder. Holmes had another header saved and Ross had a free kick saved and had a shot that sailed over the bar into the Tivoli. Danny Harrison also saw a shot go over the bar after he received the ball from Cahill. Mark Hudson thought he had put the home team in front in the twenty-fifth minute when his shot beat Brown only to see it headed off the line by Alan Bennett. The Bees goal came after a first class pass from Ryan Dickinson split the Millers defence open and Nathan Elder found himself in enough space to put the ball into the net, leaving Warrington no chance. From the re-start Jamie Green passed the ball to Dale Tonge but his header went wide and just before the end of the half, Warrington again saved from Bennett.

Early in the second half, Mark Hudson fired wide and Peter Holmes, on for Ross, had a shot saved on the line while at the other end Elder had a header saved. The game then seemed to fizzle out until two minutes from time when Hudson shot through a crowd of players and the ball went into the back of the net to give the Millmoor faithful something to shout about. Derek Holmes should have put the home side in front a minute later when he headed the ball wide from a Peter Holmes pass. It was well into injury time when Brentford grabbed the winner when Connell found the Millers defence sleeping and shot past Warrington.

With the lowest league crowd of the season at Millmoor today they are going to have to do a lot better than this before the end of the season to draw the crowds in.
