Stalemate makes life tougher for Millers

THERE was frustration for players, coaches and supporters as Rotherham United were forced to settle for a goalless draw against lowly Cheltenham at Don Valley Stadium on Saturday.

Ronnie Moore's side dominated the game and did everything but score on a day when their chances of automatic promotion from League Two all but disappeared.

The two dropped points, allied to Bournemouth's win against Darlington, means the Millers will probably have to settle for the play-offs.

Centre-half Nick Fenton said: "It was a frustrating afternoon. It was one of those matches where if you get one goal you go and get two, three, four or five.

"In the first half we had so many chances and hit the keeper's legs or bodies or whatever.

"They were fighting against relegation and they weren't a bad side but at the same time we dominated them for the full 90 minutes and never looked in any danger but we couldn't get the breakthrough we needed."

Rotherham have three games left, starting with a trip to Barnet on Saturday.
