LOSING START FOR RONNIE
RONNIE Moore had no complaints after tasting defeat at Northampton Town last night in his first match back in charge of Rotherham United.
The 3-1 setback was the Millers' first in eight league games and helped the struggling Cobblers' snap a run of five straight defeats.
A tenth minute strike by Ryan Gilligan put Moore's men on the back foot and the Cobblers' drilled home their advantage through Courtney Herbert 35 seconds into the second half and a freak own goal by Ian Sharps, deflecting a Luke Gutteridge shot past goalkeeper Andy Warrington.
Moore said: "Defensively we were all over the place. The passing and movement was there but the difference was in both penalty boxes. They were more clinical when they had the opportunities."
The Millers visit Crewe Alexandra on Saturday.
