Millers v Glovers

Rotherham took advantage of two defensive errors by the Yeovil captain, Terry Skiverton at Millmoor today after letting a two goal lead slip.

The Millers started the brighter of the teams and the first goal came on eleven minutes from Delroy Facey who powerfully headed the ball home from a Richie Partridge cross and two minutes later Martin Woods whipped in a ball from the left hand side and Skiverton turned it into his own net in front of the Millers fans in the Tivoli. But Yeovil showed their fighting spirit and Leon Best pulled one back for the Glovers when he was left unmarked to head past Neil Cutler and on thirty one minutes, Chris Cohen crossed the ball low into the area for Lee Morris to level the score. The Millers thought they had gone back into the lead when Will Hoskins had the ball in the back of the net but it was disallowed by referee Boyeson

But in first half injury time, Skiverton brought down Will Hoskins in the penalty area and the youngster picked himself up to slot home his 13th goal of the season.

In a goalless second half Hoskins went closest to getting a fourth for the Millers and towards the end of the game Yeovil threw everyone forward looking for the equaliser but the Millers stood firm at the back.

This was a good and needed three points for the Millers and leaves them four points clear of the relegation zone.
