Moore steps up player hunt after Gills gloom

RONNIE Moore will today step up his search for new players after Tuesday's dismal performance at Gillingham.

The Millers went down 3-1 in Kent as the result of defensive wobbles, meaning Moore will make bolstering his defence a priority.

"We weren't good enough and I hope to bring in one new face on Wednesday and a couple more by the end of the week," said Moore.

"The back line is a priority and if I do bring in new players then I don't think any of the current squad will come knocking on my door to complain."

Rotherham's early promise was knocked off track when keeper Andy Warrington had to go off with a head wound after a late challenge from Gills' Curtis Weston - which could have warranted a red card.

Aty that stage it was 1-1, Gills Cody McDonald and Nicky Law having traded goals.

But McDonald added his second soon after Warrington was replaced by Jamie Annerson and after the hosts had dominated the second half wrapped up the win with a late Dennis Oli strike.
