It took two pitch inspections before the game, yesterday at Sixfields, could go ahead, and there are many Millers fans wishing it hadn`t.
Rotherham started well with Cobblers 'keeper, Mark Bunn, having to make an early save from Toumani Diagouraga and five minutes later he saved again from Chris O`Grady who had received the ball from Theo Streete.
The home team then got into their stride and only the feet of Millers 'keeper, Neil Cutler, stopped Sam Aiston from opening the scoring in the eleventh minute, but he was left stranded on the quarter of an hour mark when Kenny Deuchar slid the ball away from him and steered it into the empty net. Further goals from Mark Hughes and Ian Taylor saw Northampton take a three goal lead before half time.
At half time Alan Knill brought on Pablo Mills for Richie Partridge and changed the formation to 5-3-2 to ease the pressure a little. But it was Town who once again dominated the half with Deuchar heading the ball just wide of Cutlers goal. Justin Cochrane was substituted by Eugen Bopp who in turn soon had to leave the pitch with an ankle injury which brought Marc Newsham onto the field. Stephen Brogan and Martin Woods both went close for the Millers but by this time the home team had taken their feet off the gas.
Manager Alan Knill, once again, praised the Millers following especially for their vocal support.
The Millers have now gone thirteen games without a win and are looking stranded at the bottom of the division.
