Millers boss curses bad luck

ROTHERHAM United caretaker boss Andy Liddell said he had no complaints with his players in Saturday's draw at Cheltenham Town.

Despite going ahead through Jason Taylor early on and being the better side, an equaliser from Andy Gallinagh just past the hour mark meant the Millers had to settle for a point which led to them losing further ground in the League Two promotion race.

They are now four points off the play-offs with only five games to play and eight points shy of the third and final automatic promotion place.

Liddell said: "I can't believe we didn't win. We had most possession and most chances but if you don't put them away then that's what happens.

"If defy anyone to say Rotherham weren't the best team. By a mile.

"We played well and we had desire and commitment in spades. All the managers I've spoken to say you're better off being lucky than good, and we had no luck this time."

Liddell also revealed that centre-half Johnny Mullins will be out for the rest of the season.

He suffered a knee injury in training on Friday and will have an operation this week.

Rotherham are next in action at home to Hereford United on Saturday ideally needing three points to keep their promotion hopes alive.
