Millers v Leyton Orient

Much sought after striker, Will Hoskins, showed today why so many clubs are after him after his double strike late in the game salvaged a point for Rotherham United.


Fellow relegation strugglers, Leyton Orient, were gifted a goal in the fifteenth minute when Adam Chambers twenty yard shot seemed to trickle through the hands of goalkeeper Neil Cutler. The visitors doubled their lead just after half time when Gary Alexander bagged his seventh of the season and the referee waved away the home sides protest that he was off side.

Alan Knill`s injury ravaged side then began the fight back. With twenty minutes to go debutant Stephen Brogan fed Hoskins in the area and he fired in his first from a tight angle and the equaliser was a brilliant volley looping over Glynn Garner to take his tally to sixteen so far this season.

It could have been different if the first half goal from Dave Hibbert had been allowed to stand when it looked as though the player was at least level, but the goal was disallowed for off side. Martin Woods also went close and Hibbert had a header saved on the line.

After Hoskins double strike, it was the Millers who looked like they would go on and pinch a winner with Woods twice going close.

The Millers have now moved out of the bottom four, having twenty four points from twenty five games.
