Referee:

Rotherham United went to Meadow Lane today and won for the first time since 1969 with a goal in the first half from defender Marc Joseph.

The Millers dominated the start of the game and four times in the first quarter of an hour they got infront of County's back line but four times they failed to hit the target. A flick from Derek Holmes found Chris O'Grady who shot straight at an inform Kevin Pilkington in the home goal. Danny Harrison then sent a diagonal ball to Mark Hudson but he failed to control it and sent it over the crossbar. County had a shot when Myles Weston picked out Lawrie Dudfield who jumped high in the air but Andy Warrington was equal to it and turned it over for a corner. The goal came on thirty-four minutes when O'Grady rolled the ball back to Joseph whose shot went in off the far post in front of the delighted Millers following.

At the start of the second half only a save from Pilkington, though he might not have known a lot about it, stopped the visitors from doubling their lead when an Ian Ross free-kick was turned towards goal by captain Graham Coughlan. Perhaps the Magpies should have got an equaliser when a loose ball from a corner bounced around the Millers penalty box but no one was able to put it away. But all in all the Millers could have had more goals with shots from Hudson, Harrison and O'Grady being saved by Pilkington.

So, as a new year looms towards us, the Millers got three points and are up to third in the League. Not bad from a side who didn't even know each other at the start of the season is it?

Star Player

Have to give it to PABLO MILLS today - he played a steady game and was unlucky not to get a goal. But I'd like to give a special mention to IAN ROSS who had another good game for the Millers today
