Rotherham Utd, who nearly folded earlier in the year, are completely outplayed at London Road. Richard Butcher grabs the first goal, then strikers Aaron Mclean and Danny Crow put the result beyond doubt, the latter getting his fourth goal in three matches. Former Miller Guy Branston earns an ovation from the Rotherham fans. Keith Alexander seems happy with his team's form, “To be honest we have been playing well at home for a while now with the exception of the first 45 minutes against Accrington Stanley.”
