Damp Squib at Don Valley

Rotherham United were held at Don Valley this afternoon by Blue Square Premier league side York City in what was another poor display from the Millers and when you often wondered which side was the non-league side.

The Millers had the first attempt of the game when Adam Le Fondre received a good ball from Marcus Marshall on the wing but curled his shot at York 'keeper, Michael Ingham, who smothered it. On seven minutes the visitors brought a save from Andy Warrington when Jonathan Smith shot from the edge of the area. Soon after Michael Rankine had a shot from twenty yards out which narrowly flew over the crossbar. On twenty-two minutes a mistake by Johnny Mullins let in Rankine who put in a perfect cross for David McDermott on the six yard box, but the former Walsall player completely mis-kicked with the goal at his mercy allowing Ryan Cresswell to get the ball away for a corner. Cresswell was on hand again with a great block to deny James Meredith just minutes later. On the half hour mark Nicky Law was handed a gift after Ingham dropped a Mullins cross at the feet of Law but his shot sailed way over the bar. In time added on in the first half Meredith got on the end of a high ball into the area but he fired the ball over the bar.

The second half started with Law having a shot which sailed just wide of the post and on the hour mark Le Fondre got a good ball from Marshall but the Millers` top scorer headed well wide. Apart from that the Millers couldn`t get the ball into the area and it turned into a frustrating, drab affair with the only likely outlook being a replay. Andy Warrington had to be alert in the dying minutes when Rankine got free and had a fierce shot that Warrington did well to turn round the post.

I think it says it all when Alfie was on left-wing for most of the second half.
