Referee:

A spirited performance by Rotherham United in the second half could not stop them coming away from Huish Park pointless, after they were undone seconds before the break when a cross from Chris Cohen found the head of Marcus Stewart who, in turn, found the back of the net.

Rotherham United made the first half of this game look hard as they huffed and puffed round Huish Park without really putting Yeovil under any pressure although the Millers did have chances to score when in the first minute Chris O`Grady put the ball just wide and on the twenty-fifth minute Ian Henderson after a fantastic solo run, powerfully struck the ball but it was right down the keepers throat. Henderson also had another shot a minute after Stewart`s goal but it went just over the bar.

Yeovil had plenty of chances before the goal, Stephen Brogan slid in and took the ball away from Adam Rooney before he had chance to shoot, David Worrell cleared off the line and just minutes later Marcus Stewart hit the foot of the post. Yeovil also had a good shout for hand ball against Rossi Jarvis but referee Mr Williamson said it was accidental.

Rotherham made a tactical change for the start of the second half with Richie Partridge coming on for Michael Keane. And the Millers started this half like the first when an out swinging corner from Jarvis went towards the far post but was cleared by Australian Scott Guyett. Yeovil had a couple of chances when Rooney went past Neil Cutler in the visitor`s goal but failed to score and Delroy Facey cleared from Adam Davies.

But, the home team looked nervous for the last twenty-five minutes and the Millers started to get into the game with good shots from Marc Newsham (on for O`Grady), Henderson, Partridge and a header just over the bar from Ian Sharps. Mark Robins decided to 'blood` youngster Natt Kerr when he put him on for the final fifteen minutes for David Worrell.

But it wasn`t to be for the already relegated Millers, though I am sure Mark Robins will be disappointed not to at least be coming home from Somerset with a point tonight.

A mention for the one hundred and forty six faithful Millers fans who, at times, out sung the large home crowd and as the game ended were seen to be doing the conga round the Copse Road end of the ground.
