Millers Win For New Boss

Mark Robins started his managerial career in the sunshine at Millmoor with a deserved win to give the faithful Millers fans hope of avoiding relegation again. Young striker, Mark Newsham, came on in the second half to score his first league goal which proved to be the winner for the Millers.

It could all have been so different although the Millers got off to a flying start with Delroy Facey scoring his eleventh goal of the season, when he headed home after getting on the end of a Martin Woods cross. Then it all turned sour as the visitors scored two in two minutes to go in two-one up at half time. On loan striker Felix Bastians scored the first, a great solo goal, unleashing an unstoppable shot past Neil Cutler into the top corner. The second was from Andrew Crofts just two minutes later, although the Millers fans in the Tivoli were shouting for a foul on 'keeper Cutler.

Mark Robins must have read the riot act to the Rotherham team in the dressing room at half time because they came out for the second half all guns blazing. Woods had shots at goal and Ian Henderson, on loan from Norwich, nearly broke his duck shooting from twenty yards out nearly fooling Gillingham goalkeeper Kelvin Jack before the Millers drew level. On the seventy-fifth minute Chris O`Grady got on the end of Neil Cutlers long goal kick to flick the ball past the Trinidad and Tobago international 'keeper from six yards out. Four minutes from time Newsham got on the end of a Woods cross at the near post to score and to take all three points for the Millers.

Fat ladies and singing? Probably. But while there`s hope there will be the Millers fans with fingers crossed.
