Millers Sink Seasiders

Chris O`Grady scored his second goal of the season, at Millmoor last night, to lift Rotherham United off the foot of the table.

Blackpool, who hadn`t been beaten away since New Years Day, were below par and missed out on the opportunity of going 5th when Andy Morrell missed a sitter minutes from the end of the game.

Rossi Jarvis for the Millers and Scott Vernon for the Seasiders saw shots go wide in the first half and the home side should have opened the scoring when Delroy Facey`s angled shot was parried by American Paul Rachubka in goal. At the other end the visitors could have gone in one up at half time if a vital interception by Ian Sharps hadn`t stopped Morrell`s shot going in the net.

The Millers came out with more of a cutting edge for the second half and O`Grady`s goal came on the hour mark when Ian Henderson passed the ball to Facey and from his low cross O`Grady forced the ball over the line from close range. Blackpool came back at the Millers but with their defence holding strong the Millers could have had another goal in the eighty-first minute when Henderson broke free but Rachubka saved well. The Millers should have had a penalty when O`Grady was brought down but referee Mr Foster waved the appeal away. Time added on brought a scare for the home side when Ian Evatt saw his header crash against the post but it would have been harsh on the Millers who were the better side and deserved the points.

So this leaves the Millers seven points adrift of safety. Can we do it? Is it possible? Can we pull it off again? Probably not - but then again . . . . .

It was hard picking a man of the match tonight - because my usual team of people I insist pick one were all in disagreement. In truth it could have been one of about six players tonight. So, went for the goalscorer. Though have to give special mention to Ian Sharps and Che Wilson, Woodsy (still looked injured though)and Ian Henderson (best game I have seen him play).

agree about Hendo, complete improvement from Crewe. My M.O.M would be Wilson just.
