Rotherham United 4 Cheltenham Town 2

CHELTENHAM Town made a dream start before it started to go wrong at the New York Stadium in the first half.

Keith Lowe slammed in his fourth goal of the season from Billy Jones' corner in the first minute to stun the home crowd.

Lowe was recalled to the side in the absence of Sido Jombati, who has undergone double hernia surgery and will miss three weeks of action.

Within three minutes Rotherham were level when winger Courtney Cameron beat Lowe and crossed for Daniel Nardiello to nod in from close range, with Scott Brown unable to deal with the ball into the box.

Cameron was making his debut after arriving on loan from Aston Villa and he caused Cheltenham plenty of problems along with Ben Pringle on the other flank.

Rotherham took the lead in the 20th minute when a cross was headed clear by Alan Bennett, but Pringle controlled it well and beat Russ Penn before burying a firm drive inside the bottom right corner.

A backline that had not been breached in 420 minutes before this afternoon's match was beaten again in the 29th minute.

A simple long ball from the back caught the defence out and Nardiello had time to evade the attentions of Bennett before slotting calmly past Brown.

Cheltenham reduced the arrears two minutes later when Jermaine McGlashan beat the Millers' offside trap and reached a chipped pass from Marlon Pack.

His shot past the advancing Andy Warrington was blocked, but Chris Zebroski was on hand to tap in his fifth goal of the season.

Cheltenham tightened up after the break, but they lacked composure in possession and struggled to retain the ball.

Substitute Jeff Goulding nodded a long throw from Lowe over the bar and a challenge from Ian Sharps denied Shaun Harrad after a fine cross from Sam Deering.

But Warrington was never really tested and midfielder Lee Frecklington added Rotherham's fourth three minutes into stoppage time after a mix-up between Lowe and Deering.

Rotherham United: A Warrington; M Bradley, I Sharps, C Morgan (M O'Connor 44), J Morris; B Pringle, J Taylor, L Frecklington, C Cameron (N Walker 90); A Revell, D Nardiello (K Odejayi 83). Subs not used: T Thompson, G Evans, M Rose, L Rooney.

Cheltenham Town: S Brown; K Lowe, A Bennett, S Elliott, B Jones; J McGlashan (S Deering 80), M Pack, R Penn (J Goulding 59), D Carter, K Mohamed (S Harrad 59); C Zebroski. Subs: C Roberts, D Duffy, D Andrew, J Hanks.

    I have just heard that Rotherham United's manager has been named as the new team coach for QPR. They are removing his teeth and fitting 52 seats. What a mouth that man has.

    Al - Seems like it was!! Listening to commentary, it seemed that the midfield trio of Carter, Pack + Penn gave the Millers far too much space in the 1st half from which they took full advantage of – running through and scoring 3 goals. After such an excellent start, with our goal-scoring machine that is Keith Lowe, once again finishing off a great Jones delivery. Fair play to the Robins thou – they gave themselves a fair chance of getting a result (which they were a bit unlucky not to) with another player who is starting to rack up his goal tally – Zebroski. Although he can still look all "arms and legs" at times, he's very committed to the Chelt cause and his constant effort is starting to be rewarded with goals – joint top scoer with Harrod now (thou Harrod hasn't played much recently + reached his total quicker). Overall, a tough place for the Robins to get a result from – they narrowly missed doing so, having 2 goal-bound shots hacked off the line in the 2nd half. Need to put this result to bed now by getting all three points at Chesterfield on Tuesday. Finally, just some word about the Gills match. Notice that the MA link was (perhaps predictably) underplayed by the club , so it was pleasing to read that the Chelt supporters who were at the match made their feeling clear to our former "manager" (I use the term very loosely) throughout the match. I am sure that MA will hear the very same feelings when the Gills visit WR – although this time expressed by a further 2-3,000 home supporters – can't wait personally – he will deserve every second of it after what he nearly did to us. Allthough with his track record, there is the possibility that MA may not be in charge of the Gills by the time of the home match. The near 3 year reign of MY as manager certainly puts the MA era in perspective – how so very far we have come since the dark days of 20008/2009 – long may continue to flourish + prosper under the current regime!! BTW: Chelt are gonna be on Live TV!! 1st time since the Newcastle match nearly 7 years ago!! I thought that all the TV companies had forgotten that we are still a football league club!! COYR – About time we beat Hereford at home eh? Set up a lovely 3ed tie away to Manu Utd!!
