Millers in home defeat to Darlington

ROTHERHAM United boss Ronnie Moore said that not one player emerged with credit from last night's embarrassing home defeat to Darlington.

Second-half goals by Tadhg Purcell and Gary Smith gave the rock bottom Quakers a 2-1 win and inflicted a first home league defeat of the season on the mediocre Millers, who netted a late consolation goal from sub Micky Cummins.

Neither side had played since December 12 due to the weather.

Moore said: "It was disappointing for everybody. Darlington showed more devilment and more enthusiasm.

"We had so many off their game it was untrue. It happens. We didn't meant play like that but we looked a little ring rusty.

"We have some good players here, especially in midfield, but hand on heart I don't think anyone played well tonight."

The result meant the Millers slipped to fifth place in League Two as a result of Bury's win over Bradford.

Next-to-bottom Grimsby are the visitors to Don Valley on Saturday.
