Millers lose at Moss Lane

Rotherham's first pre season outing proved that the scoring problem from last season seems to have disappeared but the defence needs tightening up somewhat.

Three times in front in the first half with goals from Marc Newsham (2) and Derek Holmes the Millers went in at half time drawing three all.

The visitors went into the lead on 10 minutes after Altrincham's Stuart Coburn had superbly saved from Peter Holmes only to see Marc Newsham score from the rebound. The home side equalised soon afterwards with a free kick taken twenty yards out by Jake Sedgemore leaving Andy Warrington no chance of saving, only for Derek Holmes to score straight from the kick-off to make it 2-1 to the Millers.A low shot from Chris Baguley brought the home side level again before Newsham got his second of the game. The last goal of the first half came from Chris Senior in the twenty-eighth minute for the sides to go in drawing at half time.

The second half began with the home team looking the better side and on the fifty-first minute, Dale Tongue needlessly barged into Joe O'Neill in the penalty area and Colin Little slotted home the spot kick to put the home side in the lead for the first time. A minute later, Little finished well for his second and Altrincham's fifth of the game, when he managed to spring the Millers off-side trap.

Mark Robins then made ten substitutions and although a nice header from Chris O'Grady made it 5-4, and Ryan Taylor hit the post in the dying minutes, Altrincham held on for a deserved win.
