Millers Bring Points Home

Mark Hudson got the goal to give all three points to the visitors taking the Millers to ten unbeaten games today at the Fraser Eagle Stadium.

The first half was a bit of a disappointment for the visiting supporters in their first visit to Accrington in fifty one years. Stephen Brogan should have had the Millers in front when he got a cross from Hudson in the six yard box but somehow managed to blaze the ball over the crossbar. Although, Stanley's best chance of the game came on the second minute when Roscoe D'Sane was put through but scuffed his shot and the ball was collected by a gratful Andy Warrington in the Millers net.

The second half started with Ryan Taylor coming on for the Millers in place of Marc Newsham and he seemed to get right up the home sides noses. Rotherham stepped up their game another gear and never let Accrington settle and it was only a matter of time before they scored. The goal came on the fifty-second minute when a wonderful pin point cross from Brogan found Hudson who converted from close range. And the Millers could have gone further in front but Hudson, Brogan and Chris O'Grady all missed chances while Ian Dunbavin tipped an O'Grady shot just over the bar. The home side could have equalised but Andy Warrington held onto an Ian Craney curling shot which looked like it was destined for the back of the net.

At the final whistle the travelling supporters cheered their team off and went away happy and smiling and manager, Mark Robins must have been pleased with the teams second half never-say-die attitude.
