Millers notch friendly win

ROTHERHAM United got their pre-season preparations off to a good start with a comfortable 3-1 victory at Grimsby Town on Saturday.

Goals from skipper Ryan Cresswell and new signing Lewis Grabban put Andy Scott's side 2-0 up at half time and even though the manager made a host of changes during the interval, they increased their advantage to 3-0 through Chris Holroyd ten minutes from time.

Rob Duffy pulled a goal back for the Mariners three minutes later.

The Millers continue their build-up with a local derby against Sheffield Wednesday tomorrow night (7.45pm).

The game is all ticket, with the sales deadline 5pm tonight.
