Referee:

Rotherham United and York City played out a goalless draw at Bootham Crescent this afternoon in front of over one and a half thousand Millers fans.

The first half was a pretty dour affair with most of the entertainment coming from the section of away fans who were seated - or more to the point, those who were trying to be seated and weren`t allowed! But it was the Millers who had the first shot a couple of minutes in when Lionel Ainsworth had a shot from the edge of the area which was well saved by City`s 'keeper Michael Ingham. At the other end Ian Sharps and Craig Morgan were on hand to make timely blocks while Scott Shearer, in the visitors` goal, gathered a Ashley Chambers shot at the second attempt. Shearer also did well to make a good save with his legs from a Jason Walker shot midway through the half. Michael O`Connor stung the hands of Ingham while Kayode Odejayi put Ainsworth through just before half-time but the Millers winger shot wide.

With the entertainment in the seats still going on the second half began and in the first few minutes Kieran Agard, on for Ben Pringle, received the ball from Odejayi but hit it straight at Ingham`s legs. Then the home side really should have gone in front when Walker and Michael Coulson played a one-two but, with Shearer well beaten, the ball went just wide. Ainsworth was seeing more of the ball this half and he had one or two shots before he should have given the Millers the lead when he`d done all the hard work by bursting through the Minstermen`s defence but then rolled the ball wide under pressure from Jamal Fyfield. On the hour mark Shearer saved the Millers with a double save when he palmed away a shot from Walker and then got back to save a shot from Patrick McLaughlin. Kari Arnason and Nicky Hunt had shots from long range which did nothing while Chambers nearly won it for the home side in the dying minutes but saw his shot hit the post and rebound to safety.

It was a game of two poor sides trying to catch each other on the break today which resulted in some good saves and some poor shooting. But it`s a point away from home.

Star Player

Thought 'Whispering' Bob Harris had quite a good game as did Michael O'Connor but I am giving the Star Player to CRAIG MORGAN
