Millers draw with Shakers

Rotherham United travelled to Gigg Lane this afternoon and came back with a point, when maybe it should have been three.

The visitors started the brighter and Efe Sodje was soon yellow carded for his second offence of the afternoon, a poor challenge on Kevin Ellison, the first being a dreadful challenge on Adam Le Fondre. Both Jason Taylor and Nick Fenton had shots that went over the bar. On fifteen minutes a David Worrall cross was only parried by Andy Warrington in the Millers` goal to Bury`s Michael Jones but he put the ball way over the crossbar and five minutes later Warrington did well to get down to a Lenell John-Lewis shot. The Millers best chance of the half came on half an hour when Nicky Law, finding a gap through the middle, set Le Fondre free but his shot went agonisingly across the face of goal with no one there to toe poke it in. Then, on forty-one minutes, much against run of play, the Shakers were gifted a goal. Danny Harrison seemed to slip leaving Exodus Geohaghon no choice but to pass it back to Andy Warrington. But the pass was short and in slipped Ryan Lowe to score his ninety-ninth league goal of his career.

The Millers started the second half much as they had the first and a Kevin Ellison refused to give up on a long ball from Nick Fenton and hitting it on the bounce it fell to Le Fondre who headed home the ball to make it one-one. You could tell how happy he was to score with the 'falling over` goal celebration he did in front of the jubilant Millers fans in the West Stand. Ten minutes later Lowe had a curling shot that went wide and minutes later the Millers defenders managed to disposes John-Lewis before he could let fly in front of goal. The Millers got a free kick which Jason Taylor swung deep to Fenton but the defender, making his first start of the season after injury, headed into the side netting. On the hour mark, a Law corner fell to Taylor but his shot went wide while at the other end Sodje headed wide from ten yards out. Sodje was given, yet another, final warning after he`d clipped Le Fondre with the striker clear but the free-kick was poor and easily cleared by the Shakers defence. On sixty-one minutes, Bury put on Manchester United loanee, Nicholas Asoje, who proved a handful and in the final five minutes he nearly gave Bury back their lead but Exodus did well to put out a leg to take the ball away from him and minutes later Warrington did well to hold onto a difficult shot from the same player.

A good point but we were pegged back for most of the second half and seemed to have no answer to the young lad from Man U.

Star Player

Difficult today - Mark Bradley, Jason Taylor and Nick Fenton all had good games but, because of the fantastic ball he put over for Alfie to score I am giving it to KEVIN ELLISON
