Referee:

Rotherham United and Bury shared the spoils at Don Valley this afternoon, with neither top scorers in League Two managing to get a ball on target.

In the opening minute of the game Adam Le Fondre knocked the ball down to Ryan Taylor whose shot looked to be heading for the net only for Tom Lees to put his body in the way and concede a corner. Two minutes the Millers thought they'd scored when Le Fondre's shot looked to have crossed the line before Lees hooked it out but referee David Webb said not. It was a quarter of an hour before the visitors troubled the Millers defence when Ryan Lowe put in a good pass towards Kyle Bennett but Johnny Mullins did well to get in a clearance before the ball reached Bennett`s foot. With the game getting a bit scrappy, Andy Bishop had a good chance to put the visitors one up but he shot straight at Andy Warrington in the Millers goal. On twenty-five minutes Nicky Law was through on goal but Mr Webb decided to pull the play back for yet another bad challenge on Adam Le Fondre by Efe Sodje. Callum Kennedy took the free-kick which fell beautifully for Mullins but he could only fire over the bar. Bennett had a shot at the other end but he snatched at it and it went into the side netting while a curling long range effort from Le Fondre was easily caught by Cameron Belford in the Bury goal.

Bury came out much the quicker side in the second half and on forty-eight minutes Lees shot wide from six yards out with Warrington beaten. Five minutes later David Worrell, made Warrington work when he had to get down smartish to save the former Millers shot. Worrell had two more shots which Warrington did well to save while Belford did well to get to a lob from Le Fondre. On the hour mark the Millers should have taken the lead. Ryan Taylor played a lovely ball behind Bury's defence sending Law clear on goal and with all the Millers fans up celebrating, he chipped his shot wide of goal. Steven Schumacher had a shot at the other end that had Warrington scrambling but it was the Millers who had the last ten minutes of play although no amount of pressure could put the ball into the back of the net.

A second consecutive goalless draw at Don Valley for the Millers actually sees them move up into fourth place as all the other teams results around went for them.

On his return I shall give it to Ryan Cresswell
