Burton Albion   0 - 1   Rotherham

Burton 0-1 Rotherham

Burton 0-1 Rotherham

Promotion-hunting Rotherham were indebted to Adam Le Fondre's 24th goal of the season in a valuable away win.

Burton almost scored when Steve Kabba's shot ricocheted off Rotherham keeper Any Warrington, only for youngster Tom Parkes to head an opportunity wide.

Le Fondre scrambled the ball home when the hosts failed to deal with Warrington's long free-kick.

And only some late heroics from Burton keeper Artur Krysiak prevented Rotherham from adding to their tally.


Burton Albion manager Paul Peschisolido told BBC Radio Derby:
"I thought the first-half performance was good, but we said the only way we'd let them back in was by a silly set-piece - not marking up, or a long ball over the top and a flick for Le Fondre to get in, so that's why I'm disappointed.

"We were prepared for it, we were ready for it, but we didn't cope with it.

"There were times we took one extra pass, there were times we took an extra touch. Sometimes we have to be a little more direct and try to get balls in the box."

Rotherham United manager Ronnie Moore tells BBC Radio Sheffield:

"The second half was total domination, I look at the pitch and see how good the pitch is and we've played some great football.

"It could have been four or five, there is no doubt about that. Alfie (Adam Le Fondre) was unfortunate not to get a couple of goals and we've had loads of chances."
