Posh too much for Millers

The Millers run of nine away games unbeaten came to an end as Peterborough took their chances and defeated the Millers by three goals to one tonight at London Road.

The visitors had the first effort when a Pablo Mills shot just cleared the crossbar with George Boyd dragging a shot just wide minutes later for the home side and Craig Mackail-Smith saw his shot go into the side netting. Posh, already ravaged by injuries had to make three substitutions in the first forty-five minutes and one of the subs, Dean Keates had a shot at goal but saw Graham Coughlan cut it out at the near post. Then some truly awful defending by the Millers let Mclean in but Sharps was on hand to clear the ball away before the home side took the lead. A few moments of head tennis in the penalty area led to Charlie Lee getting his eighth goal of the campaign when his shot from twenty-two yards out went past Andy Warrington. The Millers came straight back and from a corner Mark Hudson saw his shot skin the crossbar. Mackail-Smith had a shot for the home side and for the visitors Stephen Brogan just failed to get on the end of a Chris O'Grady pass while Derek Holmes had a shot that went wide of the target.

The second half started with Ryan Taylor being denied a goal by Joe Lewis and Mark Hudson firing wide from twenty yards out. Andy Warrington made a superb save from Mackail-Smith before Posh had a penalty appeal turned down for a tug on Gnakpa. In the home goal, Lewis made a finger tip save from Jamie Yates, on for Derek Holmes, who never seemed to get going in the game and the Millers were starting to get into their stride when the sucker-punch of a second goal by top scorer Aaron Mclean went in. Ryan Taylor then got a consolation goal for Rotherham from a good cross from O'Grady before, six minutes into time added on, Mackail-Smith got Darren Fergusson's team the third goal and three points.

Too many of the Millers team looked lacklustre tonight and lacked composure and the ability of being able to string two passes together seemed to have left them. Let's hope this was a blip and that we put it behind us and get three points at home to Hereford on Saturday.

For his goal, RYAN TAYLOR
