Millers Defeated Again

A supberb free-kick from Martin Woods in time added on wasn`t enough to give the Millers fans anything to cheer about tonight at Millmoor. In truth, Rotherham United looked like a side that have all but given up.

Swansea`s Ian Craney and Lee Trundle fired wide within the first fifteen minutes before Pawel Abbott scored his first goal for the Welsh side. Kevin Amankwaak picked out the former Huddersfield striker who headed home beyond Gary Montgomery, recalled to the Millers side, in the nineteenth minute. From then on Swansea were in control of the game with Leon Britton and Andy Robinson causing mayhem down the flanks. Delroy Facey had the Millers only real chance before half time but he dragged his shot across goal.

Swansea came out full of confidence for the second half and Robinson had an effort cleared off the line by Ian Sharps while Abbot struck the post. Stephen Brogan, for the home side, hit a fierce shot from 25 yards out which just went past the post. And, as the Millers looked like they were starting to get into the game, Britton won the ball in his own half and took it forward before finding Amankwaak, who in turn found Trundle who crashed the ball into the net from 18 yards. Minutes later, Trundle could have had a second but for a save from Montgomery. Britton once again hit the post and Willy Gueret in the Swansea goal made an excellent save in the dying minutes from Martin Woods. The Millers started to push forward in the final few minutes and Woods goal set Swansea on edge, but the visitors held on for a first win for new manager Roberto Martinez, who sees his team move up into seventh place.

The Millers, winless in fourteen games, are now stuck firmly at the bottom of League One
