Rotherham   3 - 0   Barnet

Rotherham 3-0 Barnet

Rotherham 3-0 Barnet

Returning boss Ronnie Moore watched from the stands as Rotherham condemned Barnet to a first defeat in nine games.

Kevin Ellison put Rotherham ahead from close-range after good work from Adam Le Fondre, but Andy Warrington saved well to deny Barnet's Albert Jarrett.

Nicky Law then doubled the lead with a cool lob following Tom Pope's pass.

Le Fondre then bagged his sixth goal of the season after creating space from a neat Danny Harrison pass, and the home side wasted several further chances.


Rotherham caretaker Steve Thornber tells BBC Radio Sheffield:

"It was there to see today, Barnet came and I think they thought they were going to roll us over.

"We did our homework, we knew what their strengths were. They had pace out wide, we knew if we could stop the ball getting wide we'd win the game."

Barnet manager Ian Hendon told BBC London 94.9:

"We've come here with the potential of going third today and we haven't performed. We were second-best all afternoon.

"To concede early on it's going to be difficult to get back into the game but we had a little spell five minutes before they scored where we got our foot on the ball and actually started playing.

"We had a corner that we work on and John O'Flynn has had a strike on goal and they've broken straight down the other end and scored from that. There will be questions asked. To say I'm disappointed is an understatement."
