Rotherham United`s losing streak carried on at Morecambe today, when two goals in as many minutes meant misery for the Millers.

The Millers started the game the stronger and had the first try at goal after eight minutes when Adam Le Fondre cut inside and had a curling shot at goal which was well saved by Barry Roche in the home sides` goal. Andy Warrington then brought off a good save from Laurence Wilson before Paul Mullin could have opened the scoring for Morecambe when Mark Duffy crossed for him but the tall striker failed to get his header on target. Andy Warrington made a save a few minutes later from Simon Hackney and then Craig Stanley shot wide from twenty yards out. At the other end, Broughton got on the end of a Nick Fenton cross but his header was easily saved by Roche and ten minutes before the half-time whistle, a powerful shot from Le Fondre was stopped by Roche.

Le Fondre started lively in the second half and, finding himself in space, he hit a low shot that Roche did well to get down too. Ten minutes into the half and Warrington did well to tip the ball over the bar from a Mullin header but, with all the pressure they were having, it wasn`t long before the home side took the lead. A cross in from Duffy seemed to be going right across goal but Phil Jevons appeared and bundled the ball over the line. And two minutes later they doubled their lead when another cross in from Duffy was headed over the line by Hackney. Le Fondre seemed to be the only player who kept going after that, with Ronnie Moore taking off Bell-Baggie, and on seventy-seven minutes he came close to getting his first goal in six games when he slammed in a shot from twenty-yards out that Roche just tipped over the bar. Two minutes later, Le Fondre turned provider when a good ball in found Marcus Marshall but the tall winger headed straight at Roche from six yards out.

There was a lot of crosses and passes that went astray for the Millers this afternoon and it wasn`t a happy day at the seaside for the travelling Millers fans with many calling for the manager to be sacked.
