'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Aldershot Town 2 - Rotherham United 2

EBB Stadium

28 April 2012 3.00pm

Attendance: 2,578 (219 Millers)

Millers held by Shots

Rotherham United's last away game of the season ended with a two-all draw at the EBB Stadium against Aldershot Town at the weekend.

The Millers started the game the better with a Ben Pringle free-kick being fumbled by Jamie Young, before the Shot's 'keeper claimed the ball at the second attempt. Anthony Straker then gifted visiting forward Alex Revell with the ball but his shot went wide of goal while a few minutes later Pringle put the ball into the path of Gareth Evans but Young did well to get himself in front of the winger to stop him shooting. But after just nine minutes the visitors pressure paid off when Evans was brought down by Darren Jones in the area and Evans got up, dusted himself down and put away the spot kick. Pringle nearly doubled the Millers lead minutes later but Young saved well from twenty-five yards out while a shot from Evans went just over. Against run of play the Shots equalised when a Guy Madjo shot was blocked but the ball fell kindly to Peter Vinciti who slotted home from six yards out. At the other end Josh Payne cleared a Jason Taylor header off the line before young loanee striker, Sam Hoskins, who was making his first league start, chipped the perfect ball over Young and into the top of the net to give the Millers back the lead. A few minutes later a good run from Evans ended in him having a shot at goal which forced Young into a good save and the 'keeper brought off another save, this time from Revell, as he tipped the ball over the bar in the final minute of the first half.

The second half started quietly and it was eleven minutes old before the first real shot at goal, which, was a second equaliser for Aldershot after Vincenti sent a good ball to Madjo who headed home from under the crossbar. Both Evans and Pringle had shots that came to nothing while a shot from Adam Mekki, on for Wilko Risser, had Millers 'keeper Andy Warrington beaten, but the ball hit the post and went out to safety. Evans had a shot from thirty yards out which stung the hands of Young but he managed to parry the ball away. On eighty-two minutes Millers defender, Tom Newey, crudely lunged at Mekki and was shown a second yellow while minutes later referee David Coote showed Jordan Roberts, on for Mark Molesley on sixty-six minutes, a second yellow to make the last five minutes ten v ten. Reece Connolly, on for Madjo, had a couple of chances in the five minutes time added on one of which went over the bar and the other went wide to give both teams a point from an enthralling game.
