Millers Bullied

Another disappointing display today saw the Millers fall to their second consecutive loss, for the first time this season, against Hereford at Millmoor.

Gary Hooper, on loan from Southend, got the only goal of the game on the fortieth minute to keep the Bulls in line for a promotion challenge. It was the Millers who came out of the starting blocks quickest and Chris O'Grady danced round Richard Rose and Clint Easton but ended the move with a weak shot. Mark Hudson and O'Grady again should have put the Millers in the lead but their shots were saved by Wayne Brown in Herefords goal. Andy Warrington then saved easily from a deflected Simon Johnson free kick while Theo Robinson shot badly wide when it looked easier to score. Then, five minutes before half time, Millers defender, Stephen Brogan, lost a boot which allowed Lee Collins to get into space, surge upfield unchecked and cross low to Hooper who drilled in a shot from close range.

After half time, Derek Holmes, on for Ryan Taylor, seemed to cause the visitors a few problems but it was Pablo Mills who brought off a great save from Brown when he shot from twenty-five yards out. On the hour mark Hereford should have doubled their lead when Johnson picked up the ball from a Millers corner, neatly side-stepped one player, nut-megged another before putting his shot shockingly wide of the goal. After that it was all the Millers with O'Grady and Mills bringing off good saves from Brown and Derek Holmes and Jamie Yates, on for Marc Newsham, saw shots hit the crossbar. But the visitors defence held tight and the Millers couldn't find a way through and came away, for the second time in a few days, with nothing.

Today, for me, we didn't seem to have any movement up front. The passing and holding of the ball was a little better than Tuesday night but there was nothing up front. I'm sure Mark Robins will be a very disappointed man this evening.
