Dismal Millers Display Ends in Loss

Rotherham United looked frightened to death during the game at Edgar Street against Hereford this afternoon which ended in a three-nil defeat. The fans turned out for the Millers, some in fancy dress, but the display put on was dismal to say the least.

Hereford came out all guns blazing and got off to a great start when, on four minutes, a low cross from Marc Pugh found Mathie Manset who put the ball past Andy Warrington in the Millers goal to open the scoring. Fifteen minutes later the lead was doubled when a corner was only half cleared and fell to Kenny Lunt. He delivered the ball onto the head of Darren Jones who put the ball into the net. Both Nick Fenton and Warrington stopped the home side going further ahead while at the other end Pablo Mills had a shot which was easily saved by Adam Bartlett and a minute later Marcus Marshall delivered a good ball in but Kenny Lunt was on hand to clear it away. Nicky Law had a couple of crosses that were easily cleared by Hereford defenders and Leon Constantine, for the home side, had a shot that cleared the bar. The best bit of the half for the Millers was from Ian Sharps who headed the ball towards goal only for James McQuilkin to get a boot to it and get it off the line.

The second half was only two minutes old when Constantine, more or less on his own in the area, slammed the ball against the post. The Millers then got into the game a little and Drewe Broughton and Kevin Ellison had shots that went close. On seventy minutes Ellison took a corner and Fenton rose above everyone for the header but he sent it just wide. In the final minute of the game, the Millers misery was complete when Pugh walked past the Millers' defenders and fired past a helpless Warrington to make it three.

No amount of fancy dresses and chanting could take away the miserable display by Rotherham United today. They need someone to put a boot up them before going into the play-offs because another display like the one we saw today is going to be very embarrassing. I think it said it all when the players couldn't even be bothered to come and acknowledge the six hundred plus fans who had travelled to Hereford today

Star Player

Apart from Marcus Marshall, who at least tired, I don't think there was a player out there who deserves it today
