Lincoln City 0 - Rotherham United 6

Normal Service is Resumed!

Rotherham United`s new management team of Andy Liddell and Paul Warne got off to the perfect start this evening at Sincil Bank as the Millers thumped the Imps six-nil.

Ian Thomas-Moore started the route on nine minutes when some good link up play between recalled Tom Newey and Marcus Marshall forced a corner and the cross in from Nicky Law found the son of former manager, Ronnie Moore and he put the ball over the line after it had hit the inside of the post. Five minutes later the visitors doubled their score when Danny Harrison kept on running and smashed the ball home from twenty-five yards out. On fifteen minutes Ben Hutchinson found himself with only Andy Warrington to beat but the Millers 'keeper was alert and did well to save from the Imp. Minutes later Elliot Parish, in City`s goal, made a fingertip save from Marcus Marshall while Ryan Taylor and Harrison saw shots go wide. On thirty-five minutes Law took a free kick, after Thomas-Moore was fouled, but his shot went well wide.

Five minutes into the second half Thomas-Moore got his second goal of the night when Mark Bradley set him up and the striker volleyed the ball past Parish into the top corner of the net. Three minutes later Ryan Taylor got in on the act after Harrison did well to wrestle the ball from the home side and get it to the ginger haired striker who drilled a low ball into the net. At the other end Tom Newey did well to clear an Adam Watts header off the line while Andy Warrington saved a shot from Ali Fuseini. But it was the Millers night and when Patrick Kanyuka brought down Thomas-Moore in the area there was only one person going to take the resulting penalty. While Kanyuka was being shown his second yellow card by referee Mike Russell, Thomas-Moore casually picked up the ball and put it on the spot where he side-footed the ball home for his hat-trick. Marshall, who had been causing the Imps problems all night, managed to get in a good ball to Mark Bradley but the former Walsall man skied the ball high. With twenty minutes to go Jason Taylor replaced Bradley and on eighty-seven minutes the midfielder seem to walk through Lincoln`s defence, have time to look up and from thirty-yards out smashed the ball into the net to end a miserable night for 'keeper Parish, playing his first game after joining from Aston Villa late on Thursday.

Well, what a difference a week makes! This time last week all Millers fans were down in the dumps and all you could hear was grumbling. This week it`s a completely different matter. What a fantastic team performance they put in tonight and how the fans appreciated the whole team and management coming over to applaud them at the end of the match.

What a night and all I can say is 'Lids and Warney`s Red 'n` White Army!`

Star Player

Well what a difficult decision - and this time for the right reasons! Danny Harrison, Tom Newey and Mark Bradley all had outstanding games. But, how can I not give it to IAN THOMAS-MOORE for his battling and his hat-trick
