Referee:

Two saves towards the end of the game by the visitors 'keeper ensured that The Millers went home from Hereford with a point today. Andy Warrington pulled of a great save from former Millers loanee, Toumani Diagouraga and then an even better one came ten minutes later when Steve Guinan got on the end of a corner from Lionel Ainsworth only to see Warrington push the ball away.

The first half was a pretty dull affair with Trevor Benjamin coming the closest for the home side as Warrington was called into action to grab a cross from under his own crossbar while Peter Holmes for the visitors, put in a cross that Chris Weale, in the Hereford goal couldn`t hold onto, but the defence managed to clear. Chris O`Grady and Ian Sharps had half shots at goal but it was Hereford who looked the most attacking in the last third.

The Bulls came out the quicker in the second half with Clint Easton seeing a shot rise just over the bar and a Guinan header going just wide with Ainsworth causing problems to veteran Paul Hurst for much of the half. On the sixty-eighth minute O`Grady should have made it one-nil to the visitors when he cut past his man but blazed his shot over the bar as he went for power instead of placement.

Mark Robins knows there is still work to do and acknowledges that there is still room for improvement - but we came away without any injuries, without conceding a goal and with an away point - it`s a start.

Star Player

It was hard to pick a man of the match today and either Ian Sharps or captain Graham Coughlan could have got it - but in the end it has to go to ANDY WARRINGTON for his two fine saves in the second half to keep The Millers in the game.

Could've gone either way in the last 10 minutes. An hard low cross from Todd in injury time caused problems for the Hereford defence. Warrington did well as a shot stopper, but his distribution was poor.

Can't really comment, as I wasn't there, but from what I've heard on radio and TV, read in the papers etc., Warrington was excellent.
