Millers Lose to Cherries

The bride wore white at Millmoor today and the players looked like they are waving the white flag of surrender. It was a poor performance by the Millers who didn`t gel at all; passes were going astray and shots over the roof, never mind the goal.

Perhaps I am doing the team a disservice, as, until Bournemouth scored their first goal, a thirty yard volley, on the twelfth minute, Rotherham United were the better team.

David McGoldrick scored the first and the second came just before the half hour mark, a tap in from Jamie Hayter after the original shot by McGoldrick had been saved by Millers 'keeper Neil Cutler.

Caretaker Boss, Mark Robins, started with the same line-up that had won Blackpool on Tuesday night, but there was no fight in the team today. After a half time team talk, Chris O`Grady saw his header flash just wide of the post while at the other end Steve Fletcher hit a shot straight at Cutler who then made a resounding save from Hayter. O`Grady had more shots that went over the bar or just wide and Henderson nearly pulled one back for the home side towards the end but his shot was blazed over. A yellow card for Ian Henderson and Joshua Gowling was perhaps lucky for both players when they resorted to fisticuffs towards the end of the half.

The fat lady is practising her scales at Millmoor - it`s seems that it`s just a matter of when and not if they are relegated now.

As a footnote all at Vital wish Steve and Dawn Muscroft many congratulations on their wedding that took place at Millmoor before kick off today.

I ask people around me who they think man of the match is - it gives a fair result I think. Sharps was announced as motm at the ground and also by some people I asked, but Woods came out with more votes. I even had a vote for Worrell (yes, well......)
